On Sunday 30th April UCLan Midwifery held the second event of #Challenge10 to raise money for SANDS (stillbirth and neonatal death charity).
Student midwife Sabrina Rojas organised and planned this event, which included glow sticks, cake stalls, face paint and a sports massage stall! The zumbathon was a huge success, with the exact total raised still to be confirmed, although it is thought that over £900 was raised. SANDS provides bereavement support to families affected by stillbirth and neonatal death in addition to essential research in an attempt to reduce the number of babies who die.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended this fantastic event and to those who contributed to the day, we are very grateful!
