In 2015 Skye Sutcliffe sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer.

Since then, her family have been dedicated to raising funds for Candlelighters through various events. Skye’s mum, Amie said, “Candlelighters do so much for families, there is always someone to chat to and they make you feel more comfortable and bring a sense of normality”.

The Running for Skye event taking part in Middleton Park next month will be the third annual fun run the family have organised in aid of Candlelighters. Last year the event raised an incredible £2000 with around 300 participants.

Whether you choose to run, walk, skip or hop the route it is encouraged you tailor it to suite you! To sign up please visit the ticket page or our events page.
