On Saturday 2nd February the Parkrun in Avondale House is supporting the campaign to raise awareness for SCID for Baby Juniper.
As many of you may have already heard, our dear friend and club member Jessica Carey's 6 month old baby girl Juniper was recently diagnosed with the rare and life-threatening genetic condition known as SCID, or Severe Combined Immunodeficiency. This has left Juniper with no immune system, therefore the inability to fight off infection. Juniper will need to travel to the UK for a bone marrow transplant. The treatment plan to save Juniper’s life will require the family to stay in the UK for up to six months. During this time, as family and friends, we want to alleviate any financial pressure for her parents while they embark on this difficult journey.
Join the campaign in Saturday and come along for a free run in Avondale House. It starts at 9am and you can do a one mile fun run or a 5km run. To find out more about Avondale House Parkrun click here. You MUST register online for FREE before hand and to do that, just click here.
