Fundraising has such a great impact on your self-esteem when you achieve something that is going to make a difference.  When Bethany passed away, Simon & Colleen felt worthless and failures.  Of course this is not the case, but bereaved parents will instantly attack themselves for the death of their child.

After getting through the 'year of firsts' (First Christmas, First New Year, First Birthday...etc) it was a huge emotional roller coaster as they kept serving as a constant reminder of their loss.

Simon & Colleen wanted to change this because they did not want Bethany's life to be defined by her death, but instead live a life that is inspired by her existance.  This led to their fundraising journey.

What started with the small, sponsored jog turned into the multi-sports events that we see today that involves hundreds of people each year and growing!
