Kirk Rice Team In The Fleet Half Marathon To Raise Money For Stepping Stones DSWritten on January 29, 2019 by Kirk Rice LLP

Kirk Rice Team In The Fleet Half Marathon To Raise Money For Stepping Stones DS

On 17 March 2019 a team of 4 Kirk Rice staff, will take part in the Fleet Half Marathon to raise money for local Fleet charity Stepping Stones DS. Their places are being funded by the Kirk Rice Partners and the team hope to raise a minimum of £750.

Stepping Stones DS is a parent-led Down Syndrome support group. The group was started in November 2006 by two local mums, who both had a daughter with Down Syndrome of a similar age and found there was a lack of support in the local area. They felt that what the area needed was a group that could offer families support and a place to meet and share experiences.

Stepping Stones DS now provides a wide range of support, training, information, social events and accessible activities for children and young people with Down Syndrome, their families and the professionals involved in their care. All of their activities and services are designed to empower, build knowledge and confidence, and support their members and their families to reach their potential, whilst providing the opportunity to build lasting friendships.

The Fleet Half Marathon is the original ‘pre-London’ half marathon. Since the first event in 1982, thousands of runners have completed the race and the race has become the highlight of the year’s sporting calendar in Fleet and the surrounding area. Organised by fleet & Crookham AC – it is run by the runners and volunteers.

One of our team, Michael Powell, Fleet Office, Partner commented;

‘Stepping Stones DS is a fantastic charity that provides much needed support to children and young people with Downs Syndrome, their families and also the professionals involved in their care. The charity focuses on the North Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey areas and is an entirely volunteer led and self funded group. It costs approximately £7000 per month to run all the activities and the services they provide and all money is raised through fundraising, grants and donations. As we at Kirk Rice are new to Fleet, we are keen to support great local charities and Downs Syndrome DS certainly fits the bill.’

Team members are: Michael Powell, Amy Wheldon, Charlie Knight & Margaret Marson
