Like all charities we rely on wonderful people to raise crucial funds for us, so if that’s you, here are just a few ways in which you can help support our work:
The very first MAMA Academy #MAMAthon 5K Fun Run will take place on Sunday 13th October in Liverpool during Baby Loss Awareness Week. This event is open to all abilities, all ages; bring a buggy, walk the dog, bring the kids. We want a fun packed day raising awareness, acknowledging our babies and also that there is life after loss. Click here to find out more.
Carry Their Names Challenge
We’ve said their names via the #SayTheirNames hashtag. Now lets carry them together. Our #CarryTheirNames challenge is as much about raising awareness as it is about raising funds to save future little lives. Please click here to find out more, join the challenge, or simply register for your baby’s name to be carried.
