Dexter’s Army X Runner Wild Run

06.10.16

Rachel Robinson and a team of friends took on the X Runner Wild Run on Saturday.  This was a 10K run with over 60 obstacles to challenge them!  Rachel’s nephew Dexter, is currently being treated on Ward 84 for Acute Lymphatic Leukaemia.  Dexter is just 4 years old, and as Rachel’s says ‘When we were hit with the sad news, none of us had any idea of what lay ahead’.  After a year on treatment Dexter is doing really well, he is able to attend school when he is well and is soldiering on though his 3 year treatment plan.  Dexter’s family have seen our Welcome Bags on Ward 84, they know first hand, from speaking to the families, how much of a difference they make to families on their first days on the ward.  The total raised by Rachel and friends is £1622.50 – Well Done Guys!
