Jemma Pickford and her friends have never run a half marathon before. But to raise money for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in loving memory of Jemma’s son Harry who was cared for there, they are lacing up their running shoes and bravely taking on the Bath Half in March.
Harry was born prematurely and spent time in NICU. He would have been 7 years old on the day of this year’s Half Marathon and so it seems a fitting way to raise money for the Unit.
“We can’t thank the staff enough for their expertise and for their care and compassion which was above and beyond anything you could ever expect. “ says Jemma.
“We also want our run to be in celebration of our rainbow baby, now toddler Jake, who was also cared for by the fantastic NICU staff. And also in celebration of our team member’s baby who was also treated there.“
