SSNAP are proud to be chosen as one of the designated charities this year for the 'Blenheim Fun Run' happening on Sunday 15th May at World Heritage site Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. 

With 2022 being our 40th Anniversary Year, we'd love you to join us at this magical event and help us in our appeal to raise an additional £40,000 for our SSNAP Families in our Anniversary Year!

There are four events to choose from and one great day out: the main 7k (+ dog event!), 4 miles for buggies and wheelchairs (note it is a challenging route for wheelchairs but you can bring assistance to get round) and 1 mile for under 15s.

All SSNAP runners (adults only) will receive 20% off their registration fee by quoting 'SSNAP' in the discount section when you sign up via the link below. (*Please note this discount starts from 1st February 2022 as up until the end of January you automatically get 20% off as an 'early bird registration discount.'*)

Don't forget to choose SSNAP in the charity drop down box when you register so that the organiser's can let us know you are running for us, thank you.

Once registered please email; [email protected] (with your Name, Address and T-shirt Sizes) so we can send you out your fundraising pack. All that we ask is that you try to raise £40 and we'll be here to help you every step of the way with your fundraising!

We will be there on the day cheering you on to the finish line, so thank you for joining our '#SSNAP40 Super Hero Fun Run Team' and helping make a real difference! x

The Kids 1 mile 2021!

"Our daughter Thea was born 10 weeks early and required substantial care at the John Radcliffe Hospital. SSNAP helped us navigate this scary and worrying time in so many vital ways. Daily visits and chats with the SSNAP staff were so key for our wellbeing, especially as our daughter was born during lockdown which meant restricted visitors and limited external support. SSNAP contribute to the Newborn Care Unit in so many vital ways, funding lifesaving equipment, facilities for parents and staff training. To put it plainly, without the help and support of SSNAP last year, our story would be very different. 

Please consider taking part in the Blenheim Fun Run and fundraising for SSNAP. We did it as a family last year (a gentle jog with our pram and dog!). It's a beautiful route and help save lives at the same time. We hope to see you there this year and thank you in advance!"

The Sage Family

Superstar & Personal Trainer Sophie Carter and her family, have supported SSNAP at the Blenheim Fun Run for the past few years, after their twin daughter Isla was supported by SSNAP in 2020.

"Our twins were born at the JR on 8th June 2020. I was 37 weeks exactly which is full term for twins and I went in to be induced on the afternoon of the 7th June. An induction wasn’t needed as I was already in labour. Jaxon was born naturally first and then on trying to deliver Isla I was told her umbilical cord was stuck and if I delivered her naturally it would cut off her oxygen supply and so an emergency c section was performed under a general anaesthetic. Isla was born having suffered a brain injury and she was taken to the NICU. I was only reunited with her later that same day where she was being cooled. We were introduced to the work SSNAP did for parents like us and we were very lucky Isla made a full recovery but without the fast treatment she received and expert care we would not be where we are now. We are forever indebted to SSNAP and the NICU doctors, nurses and staff!  

Isla and Jaxon are now coming up to 15 months and are regular training companions on our runs in the running buggy!! I have run the Blenheim 7k before and its a great family friendly event set in the beautiful traffic free grounds of Blenheim Palace. 

I also ran the buggy race last year virtually with my partner Jonathan and our twins and have ran it before with my now 8 year old son when he was younger. I would encourage everyone to sign up for this fantastic Family Fun Event which helps raise money for such an incredible charity as is SSNAP."
