Running For Romilly

$730 donated

Running the Auckland Half Marathon to raise money for Sands New Zealand, the baby loss charity.

Main image

On 26 June 2020, Romilly Zillah was born sleeping. Her family got to spend precious time with her thanks to Sands New Zealand.

I will never be able to run and play with Romilly, but I will run for her, and all the other angel-born babies and their families in New Zealand. I will run the Auckland Half Marathon in November, and every step is for Romilly. I can currently run about 3km, so there will be lots of training to do before the Auckland Half Marathon (21km!)

100% of the money I raise will go to Sands Wellington and Skylight, to support the wonderful, and heartbreaking work they do.

Please help me celebrate a Little Life, not a Little Loss.

On 26 June 2020, my best friend's baby was born sleeping. I want to help the charity who helped during that difficult time.

1 month old, 5km run  27 July 2020

Posted by: Gill McFarlane

Romilly was born 1 month ago. The whole world seems to change so quickly right now.

Tonight I ran 5km, at a pace of 10min per km. Not a blistering pace, but 1 month ago I could only manage 3km.

And the world keeps going :)
