John Hanson 24 Hour Sportathon "Max's Marathon"

Donation protected
At the age of 12 months, Max was diagnosed with a rare condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) also known as Brittle Bones. Max has a milder form of Brittle Bones. He has 'only' broken 20 or so long bones including his; legs, arms, and spine in the last 9 years. (Max doesn’t count the small breaks in fingers and toes). Other children who have a more severe form of OI have broken over 250 bones!

The Edney family have had so much support from The Brittle Bone Society, that we wanted to 'make some noise' to raise awareness of this rare condition. We also want to raise funds to help with much-needed research, emotional support and physical support for children and adults who have OI.

On Thursday 30th March 2 teams of John Hanson staff and students will be competing in a 24hr sports marathon, to raise money for the Brittle Bone Society. Throughout the event, the 2 main teams will compete in 12 sports, with other staff and students joining them during the 24 hours.

All of the money raised will go towards helping young people with brittle bones to go on residential trips where they will be able to take part in a range of accessible activities such as climbing, canoeing and zip wires.

Thank you for supporting our event and this very worthy cause.
