Active runner or want to get fit?
Over 20 runners have signed up to raise money for #TeamGrace this year, of all ages and abilities – we would love to see you and your friends join us for this fun day too. We offer running t-shirts, refreshments, training and more. Please just reply to this email address (GraceResearchFund@warwick.ac.uk) with your name, phone number and preferred email address by Thursday 27 February.
Join Team Grace for the Two Castles 10km run in June!
A few keen runners have signed up already for the Half-Marathon on Sunday 23 March, to raise more money for Grace. If you’re planning to take part but don’t have a nominated charity yet, why not choose to run for neonatal research with us? We will provide runners with a Grace t-shirt on the day, and lots of cheers!
Come and shake a tin at the Coventry City home game against Wolverhampton on Saturday 26 April. We will be collecting for Grace from fans, and every collector is welcome to stay and watch the game for free. There will also be a Grace interview on the pitch at half time.
If you live locally, you might have already heard of The Big Push, which takes place on Sunday 11 May. It’s a fun, fancy-dress team trolley-dash from Walsgrave Hospital to the University of Warwick, and includes a street collection through central Coventry. If you fancy entering a team of colleagues or friends, please get in touch!
Save the date - Graduate Party
On 9 August 2014 we will be welcoming back the young ‘graduates’ of the neonatal unit and their families. Come along to meet fellow parents and families who have been touched by the work of the unit and the Fund – more info to follow.
Over to you - Grace Event Month
August 2014 will be Grace Event Month - organise an event in your home, school or office to raise funds for Grace! We can provide some refreshments, prizes, and a Grace Research Fundraising Pack to start you off. We will be telling you more about this in the next newsletter, but now is a great time to start thinking about what you will do for this special cause.
Remember, every penny raised goes to the Grace Research Fund – absolutely nothing is taken away for administration – and as well as raising money for a good cause, events are a great way to meet up and talk with fellow supporters.
