Zoe Boyd is running for CCSN
Zoe is a nurse working for Manchester NHS Foundation Trust and for the last 6 years has worked in Critical Care. She is now part of the team that follows up patients following their ICU discharge and regularly refers patients to CCSN.
Zoe has been running for 3 years but this is her first half marathon! She will be in good company - Mo Farah is taking part!
Please support Zoe - follow the link below to her CAF Donate page!
Carla Smith went to St Kitts with her family for a holiday but then set herself the challenge of a lifetime - climbing Mount Liamuiga, a 1156 m volcano on the island. The climb took her through the rainforest and up to a freshwater lake in the crater. Carla hadn't trained for it but with the help of an experienced guide she completed it. Afterwards she said "my legs were like jelly and I thought my lungs might explode but it was so beautiful and I loved the climb. Absolutely the best challenge of my life!"
CCSN is very close to Carla's heart due to the support she had when her husband, Rick, was in ICU in 2020 so she feels she wants to give something back Please donate via the link below to help her raise as much as possible.
Please get in touch if you would like to support us or receive details of everything that we offer. We will never pass your details to a third party.
Miles has certainly used his imagination this year – reflecting his 90 days in ICU he has completed a sponsored walk but VERTICALLY! He has done 200 ascents of the wall at The Boardroom Climbing Centre near Chester which is 2200m - double the height of Snowden in North Wales.
He has raised an amazing £1563 for our Group funds.
to everyone who has contributed to the incredible fundraising on this page, either through carrying out the challenges, sponsoring, or donating.
All the activities the Group offers to former critical care patients and those close to them are FREE - that includes the Drop-In meetings, Exercise Groups, Relaxation Sessions and Yoga. But of course the Group does have to pay the costs of these - therapists and trainers fees etc. insurance, and of course Zoom - what would we do without it!
Thanks to this amazing effort by so many people we can now plan our activities for the months ahead
Carrying out our aim of helping everyone to make the best possible recovery from their illness.
