Up to 26 children that were born premature or sick are to run a mile each for PPBF

Team PPBF Preemies to run alongside Guernsey Marathon on 3rd April 2022

Team PPBF Preemies, a group of children aged 8-14 years and their parents, are to take part in their own relay alongside the Guernsey Marathon on Sunday 3rd April 2022. They will be running for the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation. All children were born premature or sick and have been helped by the charity. They will each run a mile (some 2 miles) with Seb Priaulx, PPBF Founders' own premature child (now 21) set to run the last full mile... all children will then join up to run the last .2 miles together.

The race starts at 9.15am and follows the Guernsey Marathon course - starting at St Peter Port near the bus terminus, around the island and back.

Please look out for their logo on their white t-shirts and cheer them around the course if you can.

A special fundraising page has been set up. They'd be grateful if you could make a donation if you can, big or small, which will go directly to help other children and families like themselves, please click here:-  https://donorbox.org/team-ppbf-preemies-to-run-alongside-guernsey-marathon-on-3-april-2022
