Second Stumble charity challenge walk in memory of Gabi, 12.

30th April 2014

Local marketing & PR specialist Faye Smith, whose 12 year old daughter Gabrielle died tragically last March, will once again attempt a twelve mile charity challenge walk with Gabi's friends and family including brother Zach (17) in Gabi's memory this Sunday 4 May.

The 'Stanage Stumble' is a regular fixture in the Sheffield fundraising calendar for Home-start, a cause which is close to her heart, supporting vulnerable children and their families across the city. It will be the fifth time Faye and Zach have done the walk which Gabi was due to attempt for the first time last year, just a few weeks after she died. Faye says, -We are so grateful to Gabi's many friends, family and even clients who turned up to walk with us last year and donated to Home-Start in her memory. We must have had about 40 walking with us, and each group got a bag of Gabi's favourite sweets to share to remind them of her. Both Gabi's best friends Rebekah and her dog Ziggy and Georgia came with her former school friends. Our youngest walker Leo was just five and still managed the whole route. We raised around £150 and the walk in total a tremendous £1000. This year Gabi's three godmothers Abigail, Hannah and Jane Lownsbrough are all walking with us, one of whom is a trained Home Start family support volunteer now- and we hope to beat that total. There are 12, 17 and 25 mile walk or run routes and the Stumble starts at HSBC's Limb Lane Sports Ground Sunday 4 May at 9am. Registration is £10 in advance, £12 on the day with a hot meal, certificate and pride for all finishers. Donate or sign up through Home-Start or on her family Just Giving pages
