Take part in the Southampton Big Fun Run on Sunday 27 July and raise money to help children like local six-year-old Advay Bhandari.
Advay, who lives in Southampton, has developmental and learning disabilities and seizures. He is unable to walk but can roll; however, he has no awareness of danger and needs constant supervision. Advay wears a special helmet to protect his head to help keep him safe.
Mum Anchal Bisht said: “Because of his condition, Advay was sleeping on the floor for safety, but even then he was able to roll off the mattress and bang his head on the floor. Sometimes he would cut his lips and even though he has the helmet he could still hurt himself.”
If you have already signed up to the Southampton Big Fun Run and would like to raise money for Newlife – or Advay’s story has inspired you to now give it a go, call the Newlife Community Fundraising Team on freephone 0800 988 4640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
