Oscar’s 10 For 10 July Challenge

Karl and his friends and family have been taking on the incredible challenge of 496km in 31 days! 

Last Friday Karl and the team completed their final 31km! We are in awe of all of them and are so grateful for their determination and perseverance. Charlotte and Karl originally had plans for 10 different events throughout the year to mark what would have been Oscar’s 10th birthday but the lockdown changed their plans. Friend Andy came up with the idea to take on the same number of kilometres as the date starting with 1km on the first and a massive 31km today on the 31st.

Karl has shared a little below about why he is taking on this challenge:

“Since losing Oscar in 2010 we’ve always wanted to do all we can to help others, as well as honour his name. The Ronald McDonald House in Bristol gave us every opportunity to stay by Oscar’s side and we truly couldn’t have got through that period without the support and space they provided.

Oscar would have been 10 years old this year so we committed to doing 10 events over 10 months to raise £10,000. Corona Virus tried to stop us but we’ve stayed positive and creative and with the help of friends and family we have kept pushing forwards with ways to keep the donations coming in.”
