As her mum starts to regain her energy, Anna thought it was the best time raise funds for the hospital’s Aylesford Unit.

“The Aylesford Unit has not only helped my mum, but also many others, and I know that it is so important to recognise the amazing work they complete every day,” said Anna.

The event was no ordinary 5k run; participants start off in white and aim to finish the run covered in multi-coloured paint.

Following a challenging year, Anna felt that taking part in this fun and energetic run epitomised how far her and her family have come. She also whipped up a group of friends to join her.

“My mum stands by the saying ‘don’t let the world change your smile, let your smile change the world’. 

“And it’s that phrase that is the inspiration we have behind us in deciding to raise funds and give back to the unit that’s cared so deeply for her.”
