Isle of Wight Coastal Run
30 November 2016
Between Wednesday 28 December and Saturday 31 December Eliza Dubois (Upper Sixth, Nugent) and Rob Turness (Upper Sixth, Chandos) will be running the entire perimeter of the Isle of Wight, following the coastal path which is 108km long (67 miles). They are running in support of Winston’s Wish which is a charity that deals with child bereavement by helping the families through counselling and support.
This is a topic which is incredibly personal to the both of them. After Rob lost his father in Easter 2015 and Eliza having lost hers in Easter 2016, they are both very familiar with the trauma brought about by the loss of a parent and therefore realise the incredible necessity of the support needed during times of grief. Both Rob and Eliza were fortunate enough to receive amazing support through friends and family, however they realise that not all people have that network and want to help support others by raising money for the amazing works of the charity Winston’s Wish.
You can support this cause by donating on their JustGiving page and help them face the challenge they are facing in their father’s names.
