  • It's Oscar's Birthday tomorrow. He should be six. As usual we will have a low key day, saving all of our thoughts for him. We don't write these posts for people to feel sorry for us. I think it's helpful for people to understand, for other folk around them who might also be affected one day, this grief thing doesn't go anywhere. If there was one thing that any of our social media friends could do for us on the back of a post like this it would be to tell someone they know about the charity. We have got an amazing event coming up later this year and we are actively seeking corporate support and cyclists to hop on a bike for 100 miles #TOO500 (http://www.too500.co.uk). The impact will be amazing. We are raising money for Thinking of Oscar which in turn will be shared amongst 6 children's hospital charities. Together we are raising awareness of the need to invest in child health. Together we are raising £500,000 in order to invest in first of a kind, innovative projects which will improve child health.

I read a beautiful post this evening which seemed particularly evocative on the eve of Oscar's birthday. .

"Someone told me once, that one day we will be together again. They were wrong. He is the babies that survived, he is the children at school who remained in the womb and defied the odds, he is the research that goes on in his name to this day. He is everywhere. But most importantly, he is the watcher of his siblings, my greatest listener, my comfort, my Birdy, my boy. He is with me every single day, because you see, he never left." https://www.spikeymama.com/blog/2017/10/9/baby-loss-what-may-help-you-as-a-parent-and-advice-for-those-supporting-them/

TOO500, which stands for Thinking of Oscar 500, is the name of the bike ride which we are organising to mark the 5th anniversary of @thinkingofoscar and five years since the little boy who inspired the charity, Oscar Cole, died. The significance of the 500 is that this is the number of miles that will be cycled from start to finish between June 12th to 16th 2019.
.
.
The ride begins at the Oxford Children's Hospital on Wednesday June 12th. From there we ride to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital over the Pennines to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, down to Great Ormond Children’s Hospital in London and back up to Oxford, arriving in Oxford on Sunday 16th June 2019.
.
.
The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness of the need to invest more in child health and to raise £500,000 which will then be invested in first of a kind innovative projects with a focus on better outcomes for sick children.

  • Are you looking for a Goal in 2019? Did you know that 75% of rare diseases affect children and one in three will die before their fifth birthday. Yet only 5% of public and charitable money spent on medical research in the UK is dedicated to children’s illnesses. #TOO500 is a unique and very special cycling challenge which will take riders to 6 of the top Children's Hospitals in the UK, raising awareness of the need for increased focus and funding for #childhealth and raising funds to begin first of a kind #innovation projects to start to look at solving some of these problems. Join us for 1, 2, 3 or even all 5 days and help to make a difference to the lives of sick children across the UK. Sign up using the link in our bio and join us between June 12-16 2019 as we look to make a difference. 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍ #NHS #cyclechallenge #charity #nonprofit #awareness #Cyclist #Roadcycling #Charitycycle #Cyclechallenge #earlybird #ride100 #centuryride #innovation #paediatrics #Pediatrics #HealthInnovation #healthcare #ukcycling #britishcycling #ukcyclingevents #makingadifference #greatormondstreethospital #oxfordchildrenshospital #sheffieldchildrenshospital #birminghamchildrenshospital #royalmanchesterchildrenshospital #alderheychildrenshospital
