Running for Dr Ozzy

Chadwick House occupier Mark Evans will be run off his feet this year, quite literally by his children Ruben and Ella who have set themselves a huge challenge to run 100KM over the year.

In November 2017 Ruben and Elena embarked on a running target of 100km to raise money for a new outside play area for the Children’s Ward at Warrington Hospital. This involves a variety of events, such as fun-runs, trail adventure running and obstacle courses. It is truly a momentous challenge that is very befitting of the project.

The play area project is called Making Waves and will carry the nautical theme along with Dr Ozzy.

This new area will include interactive games, sensory garden, covered area and wheelchair access including a pirate ship! However, the most exciting part of this garden is the plan to create an easy bed access to the play area to invite bed ridden young patients to join-in and experience something other than the four walls of the ward.
