Little Hiccups, a pioneering support group founded by parents of children with additional needs and disabilities, is gearing up to make a significant stride towards promoting unity and understanding in the community.
On 13th August, between 11am and 1pm, at Brigshaw High School in Leeds, the group will be taking on a Marathon Challenge, and the team at Ison Harrison are delighted to be supporting the event.
Our firm has sponsored the venue hire and we have donated raffle prizes including sweet hampers.
Our Director and Head of Clinical Negligence, James Thompson, will be attending the event and he is also a Trustee for the charity.
The Little Hiccups charity supports parents and families navigating the world of additional needs and disabilities. Drawing from their personal experiences, the group’s founders have endeavoured to create a safe haven where parents and families can meet like-minded individuals, forge friendships, and support each other through shared understanding.
Guided by the belief that every family’s journey is unique, Little Hiccups extends its compassionate outreach to families with children under 16 who have additional needs or disabilities. This inclusive approach creates a space where stories, triumphs, and challenges are openly exchanged.
The forthcoming Marathon Challenge is open to individuals of all abilities. Participants are invited to run, walk, skip, hop, jump, or wheel any distance of their choosing. A collective effort, the ultimate goal is to collectively achieve a cumulative distance of 26 miles.
The charity is also hosting a Superhero Award Ceremony, celebrating the remarkable achievements of exceptional children.
The Superhero Award ceremony has been made possible with thanks to Zurich who have sponsored the awards and places of the children winning the prizes by sponsoring the entry into The Superhero Series which is powered by Marvel.
Each participant in the Marathon Challenge and every Superhero awardee will receive a Goody Bag, a testament to the collective goodwill of Little Hiccups and its supporters.
Little Hiccups Secretary, Miriam Watson-Pratt, says:
“I am so incredibly proud of all our Hiccups families and cannot wait to see what absolute superheroes they are. Every single one of these kids deserve this award.”
