Running for Rose 2017 celebrates what would have been our daughter’s third birthday.  Very sadly, baby Rose was stillborn at full term on 3 October 2014 after a healthy pregnancy. We learned in early labour that Rose had died; she was born a day later, with the amazing support of doctors and midwives at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

Losing Rose was heartbreaking. In the months that followed, we were fortunate to hear from our midwife of The Laura Centre, a bereavement counselling service for parents and children. The kind, nurturing support of their experienced counsellors gave us hope and strength, and got us back on our feet.

Since our first event in 2015, Running for Rose has raised over £9000 for The Laura Centre, helping the charity to open a new centre that will support bereaved children and parents in Coventry and Warwickshire.  Our goal in 2017 is to take the total funds raised in Rose’s memory to £10,000.

Event details

Running for Rose 2017

To celebrate Rose’s third birthday, her mum, dad and little brother Michael will run 5km together at Leamington Spa parkrun on Saturday 7 October 2017.  We’ll be joined by Rose’s extended family, friends and the wider parkrun community, who will come together (both in Leamington and at parkruns around the country) as runners, walkers, volunteers, and supporters -- all wearing roses. 
We’re grateful to Leamington parkrun for dedicating to Running for Rose and TLC the first parkrun of each October, and for making TLC their chosen charity for the whole of the month.
Some of our team will also make an appearance as runners, walkers and volunteers at the gruelling sixteen-mile Seagrave Wolds Challenge in Leicestershire on 11 November 2017!
