Can I run for you without having to raise a specific amount?

Yes! You can sign up with RunThrough and pay full price for your place by clicking here.

How will the funds be used?

The funds raised will be used to make a difference to disabled and terminally ill children across the UK. Newlife provides specialist equipment grants, emergency equipment loans, Play Therapy Pods and a free Nurse helpline to families. The funds you raise will go towards continuing to run these service and help change childrens’ lives.


Rachel’s Story

Rachel ran for us as a way to say thank you for helping her family:

“I really enjoyed the experience of running and raising money for Newlife. Prior to the run I was a bit nervous but motivated by the fact that I was raising money for such a worthwhile cause. Newlife have been fantastic in providing us with much-needed equipment loans and support from their many services.”

Helping disabled children

Oakley’s Story

Two-year-old Oakley has Cerebral Palsy. At night he would try to climb out of his cot, injuring himself, so Newlife provided a specialist bed:

Mum Paige said: “Oakley can’t escape from his new bed meaning we know he is going to be safe in there. There are holes for his feeding tube so it’s so much easier – and it means we aren’t worried about him pulling on it. His new bed has really helped.”
