The Lake District is the adventure capital of the UK and the home of Total Warrior. It's a perfect venue for an obstacle race with endless hills, rivers, mud, woodland and rugged terrain.

PLUS 25-30 Total Warrior challenges!

My story behind the reason for doing this ...

Olivia was born 20.08.2015.  As soon as she was born she came out in a rash which indicated that her platelet count was extremely low.  Whilst she had a platelet transfusion they did further tests and found that she had congenital CMV.  It was the scariest time of our lives and we couldn't understand why we were never made aware of it when i was pregnant.  We thank our lucky stars every day that so far Olivia is hitting all her milestones and passing her hearing and eyesight tests but really want to make more people aware of this life changing virus.  We will never stop worrying about how she may well be affected by CMV and celebrate every moment with her.  She is absolutely adored by her big brother who loves giving her lots of cuddles and kisses.

I am totally overwhelmed by everyone's generosity. So far we have raised nearly £1500 which is incredible and the more people donate then the more people I have made aware of CMV.

 

Thanks
Jade

 

Thank you Jade from everyone at CMV Action, good luck and we're glad Olivia is doing so well.
