Our 2016 runners

We had over 56 runners taking part in the Southampton Half Marathon for us in 2016, raising over £22,000 for the charity.  Some of their stories are below:


Brothers Kevin, Dan and Matt Smith running for Bry

“Last November our dad Bryan Smith suffered a sudden major heart attack in the night. Thanks to a combination of luck, mum's quick reactions, the speed of the emergency services and the work of the paramedics, dad made it to the hospital in time for the cardiac team at Southampton General Hospital to perform life saving heart surgery. After having an initial two stents inserted he then had a whopping quintuple bypass operation, which we are delighted to say, was a huge success. He is now active again, doing his rehab and most importantly playing with his five young grandchildren. We are so lucky to have dad with us and so are taking on the Southampton Half Marathon, not only to see who is the quickest brother, but to raise vital funds and awareness for Southampton Hospital Charity, specifically the Cardiac High Dependency Unit (CHDU) whose care for dad during his time there was truly unbelievable.”


W8 data taking team building to the extreme!

"As part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations at W8Data, most of the team have signed-up to run the ABP Southampton Half Marathon 2016. We very much wanted to support a local charity and one close to many of the team is the Southampton Hospital Charity.  They’ve all been hard at work training for the event, so good luck on the day to Charlotte Kelly, Will Anthes, Ethan Prioletti, Himanshu Karode, Robert Thomas, James Mackenzie, Dave Lee. The team range from experienced runners to a number of first timers, willing to tackle this amazing challenge for such a good cause."


Child therapy team running for the hospital

"We are a team of Children's Therapists (Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists) who are very passionate about our involvements with sick children whom we see on a daily basis. The children we work with are hospitalised through illness, acquired injury or have long/life term disabilities. Our team of highly trained Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists play a key role in reducing the length of time that certain children remain in hospital and in ensuring that rehabilitation is achieved as rapidly as possible.

As a specialist centre, we continue to receive increasingly acute and complex cases from across the region, it is our desire to ensure that they have access to the most up-to-date and specialised equipment to enable them to recover or learn to manage their conditions as fast as possible. Children's Therapy equipment such as this is not funded through the NHS, therefore the equipment we use is very limited and in desperate need of being repaired or replaced. The lack of specialised equipment can restrict the diversity of treatment, therefore limiting children's therapy sessions."
