Freddie’s Festive Fun Run

Our Annual Fun Run is back for 2023 and this year we are making some changes which we think will make you smile!#BeMoreFreddie

Freddie Orton was a huge fan of the Santa Fun Run which he took part in with his family every year up until his death in 2022.

Freddie’s Mummy was our Chair of Trustees when Freddie died and so the charity already played a big role in the family’s life and was already a very big part of Team Bodie.
Freddie was only 7 but he understood our mission and our values so well.
We also know that a huge number of tickets were bought to our 2022 Santa Fun Run in memory of Freddie and so in his honour, our Christmas fun run will now be known as Freddie’s Festive Fun Run.

Fundraise for freddie's festive fun run

The Bodie Hodges Foundation would be hugely grateful if you could raise a small amount in sponsorship for this event.

We would love it if everyone who is taking part could fundraise just £8 to help to ensure we can continue to support bereaved families.

£8 could help us provide a Worry Bear Boo to a bereaved sibling.

With the current cost of living, we understand that many people will not be able to fundraise this year. However, if you feel you can it would be hugely appreciated. 

A huge thank you to our Headline Sponsor – ER Recruitment for generously supporting this event as well as our other event sponsors.
