Bettys Harlow Carr 2022 Branch Charity: SCBU Harrogate
This year, Bettys Harlow Carr have chosen the Special Care Baby Unit, Harrogate as their branch charity. The SCBU provides specialised care for babies born from 32 weeks. With bedrooms and kitchen facilities for parents to stay on the ward with their babies, the nurses provide care and support for the whole family.
My 40th Year Goal
My goal is to run a marathon in my 40th year on earth. My health and well-being is important to be me, at home and at work. As part of my 40th year I will be taking part in as many organised runs as I can to not only improve my fitness but also to be able to complete my first marathon before by 41st birthday in September 2022. Not only will I benefit from undertaking this challenge but I want HHCC to benefit from the support of my friends and family by sponsoring me to achieve this important goal for me. All the money raised will be invested into enhancing the patient and staff experience across Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust where the need is greatest. Two years ago I couldn’t run more than a few steps and now I regularly run at least 5k as often as I can. The impact this has on me as an individual, a wife, mother, daughter, sister and work colleague is indescribable and I wish to also encourage others to channel their energy into something that could benefit their health and well-being. Thank you to each and everyone of you that supports me in this 12 month challenge. I will keep you regularly updated of my achievements and challenges. Together we can all make a difference. Yvonne 🙂🧡🙂
