One Month Till Splash Dash
With just one month to go, we have been receiving some of the amazing stories from Claire House families who have taken part.
The Hall family are experienced Splash Dashers with mum Emma sharing: “We do most years and we love it, all the family get involved it is such a fun day!”
Jessica’s family has taken part in Splash Dash a couple of times, with mum Alison sharing: “Jess absolutely loved it! She got sooo excited she pull her trachy out as we ran through blue.”
Jessica’s siblings shared their reasons for running Splash Dash for Claire House:
Brother, Joe said “They held my sister captive so I could go to Legoland. Ha ha ha. (My sister loved it).”
While sister, Liv said about Claire House “It gives me and my brother time with my mum and dad, without worrying about my sister, Jess.”
Mum Natalie shared how personal the family’s experience of doing their first Splash Dash was by saying: “We did our first Splash Dash on our boy Sam’s first anniversary of his funeral.”
The Lumley family have previously tackled Splash Dash, with plans to take part again. Emma’s mum, Rosie, said: “My husband did Splash Dash with our two younger daughters last year, they had an amazing time. This year, Emma and I are going to join in too (thinking a sheet over her and the wheelchair with her head popping out?!”.
The Mathison family have taken part a couple of times, with the first time Freya’s dad and little sister taking part while Freya and family watched. Another year, all 5 of the family took part and ended up getting covered “head to toe” in the paint. The family are hoping “this year [they] can make it.”
All of the McIntyre family took part with mum Shirley saying: “We all had a fab day. Charlie can sleep anywhere! Even when he is getting covered in paint!”
If hearing these inspiring and fun stories has gotten you wanting to take part, there is still time to sign up for Claire House – in case you did not hear, there is 1 month to go!
