A cause I care about needs help

On 27th of May Zoe  would have turned 9 if her life had not been cut short by a merciless type of brain tumour DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). She spent her last days in Naomi House, Hampshire where she was cared for by an incredible team of people who made her last days as comfortable as possible and provided an invaluable support to her family in the most tragic time. They do it every day for terminally ill chidlren and their dedication, kindness, love and compassion make an enormous difference. Zoe was a very special girl for our family, the daughter of our friends and a friend to our eldest son Fabian. We would like to do this fundraiser in her memory. She loved Disney princesses and loved dressing up! So, Joe, the boys and I decided to dress up as characters from Frozen film, including Elsa (me), Anna (Joe), Kristoff (Fabi) and Olaf (Romi) and do a sponsored  5K run in Southampton Common. In the current context of COVID-19 we will run as a family but we are hoping to start a tradition and make this run an annual event where more people can join.  We intend to do our run on Saturday June 6 and be assured that we will post lots of silly photos and videos of ourselves!  Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us as we want to make sure that memory of Zoe lives on.
