Run the Royal Parks Half for SLOW

Need a fitness challenge and love running?

In 2022 we’d are hoping to support more bereaved families than ever, so we’d you love to join our Royal Parks Half Marathon team and fundraise for SLOW.

We have a number of places for the Royal Park’s Half Marathon in London on Sunday 9th October 2022. The stunning 13.1 mile route takes in the capital’s world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Registration is free for each place with a minimum fundraising target of £450 per runner.

If you are up for it contact Kelly at admin@slowgroup.co.uk and please share with your friends and family.

Please support our amazing Royal Parks Half Marathon Team!

Please support our amazing Royal Parks Half Marathon Team!

After being postponed twice due to COVID, the Royal Parks Half Marathon is finally going ahead this weekend and we have an amazing team of 12, running and fundraising for SLOW.

Many are running in memory of beautiful children all lost far too soon.

There’s Julia running for Nola,

Nola

Adrian running and remembering Henry,

Henry

Felicity running in memory of Maude,

James running in memory of his niece Nina,

and Mark running in memory of his son Ed.

The parents of these children have found support at SLOW, keeping their child’s memory alive and sharing their grief with others who understand the devastating pain of losing a child. With this fundraising we hope to support even more bereaved parents and siblings in the UK over the coming year.

It’s been a difficult time for fundraising with the pandemic so we are overjoyed with what this amazing team have raised so far but there’s still time to donate if you can spare a few pennies – we’d be truly grateful!

Good luck to all the runners on Sunday – we can’t thank you enough team!

The 2.6 Challenge – please raise funds for SLOW!

The 2.6 Challenge – please raise funds for SLOW!

Like many small charities, SLOW has been impacted by the cancellation of fundraising events due to Covid-19.  In response, we’re joining the 2.6 challenge and hoping that our members and their family and friends can join us in raising funds for SLOW with their inspiring events from this weekend.

The 2.6 challenge has been set up by the London Marathon organisers as the race (also 26ish miles) is not going ahead this Sunday – the 26th April.

We’d love you to fundraise for SLOW by creating a personal challenge based around the figures 2.6 or 26.

So, you could do 26 cartwheels, 26 laps of your garden, a 2.6 mile / km run or walk, 26 minute of yoga or pogo’ing, or just run up and down your street 26 times!

Be creative the challenges are endless!   It’s open to anyone of any age, sibs included, and the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government’s guidelines on exercising and social distancing.

You can either set up a fundraising page, or simply make a one-off donation for your challenge via this link.

Thank you so much everyone – your fundraising efforts will be truly appreciated!

Huge thanks to Nic

Huge thanks to Nic

Today we said a huge heartfelt thank you to Nic as she stands back from running the weekly Wednesday group after twelve years.

The fab four, Liz, Maria, Nic and Susie from the Wednesday group

Countless bereaved parents, myself included, are thankful for the time she has devoted to this thriving group, giving us the ‘space to be loved and heard’.

The SLOW Warriors thank you gift for Nic and her daughter Naomi

Don’t worry though she’ll still be working hard for SLOW – mentoring our new facilitator recruits (more about them and our new Monday group soon), running the monthly evening group and SLOWsibs as well as the countless other things she does behind the scenes to help SLOW bereaved parents.

Thank you Nic – we are all truly grateful to you and Susie for setting up SLOW and the support you have given us all over the years.
