Katie never stopped living life with extraordinary bravery, fun, courage & her bewitching smile. She fought so hard for life, and for the lives of others that we can all keep her light burning by continuing the work of these two incredible causes www.lifeinfullswing.org
The ickle pickles support the tiniest premie babies who come into this world needing our help, through no fault of their's. This was Kate's great passion, to help others ever since our own Ickle Pickle turned up at 31 weeks, 9 years ago.
The Royal Trinity Hospice is the other end of life's circle. The care, love, support, dignity, opportunity but most of all laughter with which they filled the end of Katie's life left a permanent mark and an immeasurable debt of gratitude on Katie, myself and all that laughed with her those last few weeks.
These two charities help the cradle & the close of life, when help is needed most. What you do with the rest of that circle is what makes our lives count. Much likes Kate's incredible golf swing!
She lived her life in full swing as we should ours. This isn't only a page to donate in her memory, though so many have asked, but an umbrella page for all our efforts.
However much or little you chose
Whether people wish to just donate in her incomparable memory, or to make their actions count by getting sponsored for something we can smash this amazing target.
She wanted all all of us to do something fun, something we'd not thought we could or would find time to do. That can be the most simple bake sale, a marathon, a bungee, a school sponsored walk or even just a change of hair colour - she did that enough. If we can raise money from many different places, the big total will suddenly feel small.
Kate's silent yet steely determination to change things one step at a time, and yet never be put off by the fear of that challenge, inspires me daily. I hope it can you too.
Everything raised will go to these incredible charities. If you need more info just mail me!
I promised Kate I would do this, and that we would Have fun doing it. As Kate proved. When you have a window to live life, live it well.
