Join ‘Team Breya’ at PARAS’10 Colchester

Can you help our brave Breya by sponsoring your run or tab at PARAS’10 at Colchester? If you can, we will give you a special £25 entry (instead of £39).

On 13 January 2017, 2 year old Breya Ward, daughter of Sgt Ollie Ward and Holly Robinson, was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive cancer which attacks children under the age of 6.

A year on, Breya has fought so hard to beat her cancer. She has bravely come though her operation, a year of chemo and her third birthday. A vaccine therapy trial in New York now gives her the best chance of building up her immunity so she can beat it completely. 50% of Stage 4 Neuroblastoma patients can relapse within 2 years, so Team Breya are getting in ahead of any relapse. Her parents and SUPPORT OUR PARAS will work in partnership to make it happen.

Breya is closer than ever to this vital help – just 3 months to go - but we need your support to send her off to New York in May – PARAS’10 Colchester is perfect timing.

She needs £35,000 to reach the target amount. If 100 people run for Breya and raise £350 each, she is there!

Want to help? This is what you do:

  1. Set up your page for Breya through https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/supportourparas Donations through this site are commission-free and mean we can claim Gift Aid so the taxman does his bit for Team Breya. Set your target to a minimum of £350 – or more if you have brilliant and generous friends.
  2. Email/PM us the link to secretary@supportourparas.com and we will send you a personalised one-use entry code. We will announce that you have joined Team Breya.
  3. Enter Colchester PARAS10 – run or tab – at paras10.com with the code

We are only doing this at Colchester – we hope that by Catterick Breya will be well into her new treatment.

A designated fund for Breya within the charity holds all money raised. If for any reason the funds raised are in excess of what is required, they will convert into unrestricted funds that SUPPORT OUR PARAS will use to support other Paras and their families. If you just want to donate to Breya you can do so at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/teambreya
