Momentum children’s charity will be holding a one-mile sponsored walk on Sunday 14th May at King Georges Recreational Ground in Ewell, in celebration of all the brave ‘superhero’ children it supports.
This is the third year that the children’s cancer charity will hold this event, where children (and adults!) are encouraged to dress up as their favourite superheroes while raising funds for Momentum to continue supporting local children with cancer and life-limiting conditions. This year the money raised will be split between Momentum and Ollie’s Star (a fund set up in memory of local boy Ollie Lovis to raise money for Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group).
Epsom boy Ollie Lovis sadly lost his battle with cancer two years ago. He would have been six years old on the 18th May.
His mum Terri said: “Personally for me it is important to do something in memory of my son Ollie. It is a lovely way to celebrate his life as he loved the outdoors and dressing up as Spiderman. But this day is also to celebrate all the wonderfully brave children that Momentum supports who are all very much superheroes.”
Momentum, based in Kingston-upon-Thames, supports sick children and their families across SW London and Surrey, including many families in the Sutton and Epsom areas.
