The Sands Challenge Series is a set of four endurance events I will complete throughout 2013 to help raise much needed awareness and funds for Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity.
Tragically, in December 2012 my wife and I lost our baby daughter, Grace, who was stillborn and the support and information Sands were able to offer us was vital in helping us deal with our sad loss.
Every day in the UK, 17 babies are stillborn or die shortly after birth - that's over 6,500 a year and is one of the highest stillbirth rates in Europe. This number is simply too high. Sands supports anyone affected by the death of a baby and promotes research to reduce the loss of babies' lives. They also work in partnership with health care professionals to improve the quality of care and services offered to bereaved families. Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. Thank you, Nathan & Jen.
