Thank you to everyone who supports STARS by fundraising. Whether you have organised or participated in a fundraising event, we would not be here without you. Take a look at what our fundraisers have been up to:
When 5 year old Philip Gibbons' little sister was diagnosed with RAS, STARS helped his mummy understand the condition. As a thank you, Philip decided to scoot 400m, cycle 400m and run for 150m and managed to raise a whopping £233 for STARS!
Lynda Peddle and her community choir sang in Christmas concerts and raised £425 for STARS
Reflex syncope sufferer, Emily Hartnell hosted a variety show in her local village hall and raised over £700 for STARS!
With the help and support of her family and her dalmation, PoTs patient Helen Burton, managed to walk the 26.2 miles of a marathon in less than 2 weeks - she called it "My Marathon". She was delighted to have raised more than £750!!
Claire O'Sullivan lives with syncope, but still managed to run the Great North Run in September 2016 with her partner Dan. Together they raised almost £350
15 year old Meg Harris ran the British 10K in London. She said "It was hard work and I didn't really train enough, but it was a fun way to see the sights of my favourite city and raise over £100 for a brilliant charity at the same time."
Matt Peddle and 7 of his colleagues traveled all the way from the bottom of the country to the top to complete the 3 Peaks Challenge in honour of Matt's daughter Lottie who has RAS. The team did a fantastic job and together they raised over £3000
