Archie Bradburn, from Year 9, and his mum Kelly have set off on a quest to jog 50 miles in March to raise funds for stillbirth and neonatal death charity, Sands.
Mother and son have already completed 16 miles and are hoping to raise £400 to help support families affected by the loss of a baby – a cause that’s very close to their hearts.
When Archie was born, he defied all the odds to survive a rare hospital procedure after his mum went into premature labour and very sadly lost his twin brother.
Mum, Kelly, explained: “Back in 2007, Archie was born and featured globally as a medical miracle.”
“I was pregnant with twins and went into labour at 21 weeks. Archie’s brother was born too soon, but I carried Archie full term thanks to the wonderful professionals at Russells Hall Hospital.”
The ‘Jog 50 Miles in March’ campaign is to support the incredible work carried out by Sands, which helps anyone affected by the death of a baby, works to improve bereavement care and funds research to save babies’ lives.
