Premature twin now running Marathons for Miracle Babies

The London Marathon is one of the largest running events in the sporting calendar. Each year tens of thousands of people compete in the race that has drawn over one million runners since it’s conception in 1981. The original founders of the event were inspired by a marathon’s ability to bring people together from all walks of life and see them work together, laugh together and achieve an amazing feat together. The idea of people coming together to support one another is at the core of many of our Miracle Families.

Katie Hay is one of our amazing supporters who will be running the London Marathon this year, raising funds and awareness for premature and sick babies and their families. Katie was born a premature twin herself and knows what her mother had to go through – making her dig even deeper and work extra hard to help families like hers.

“Whilst it’s amazing to welcome a new child into the world it can be extremely challenging. For many, the work that Miracle Babies Foundation do is the main support they have.”

This won’t be Katie’s first Marathon for Miracles, Katie also ran as part of the 2018 Miracle Babies NYC Marathon Team with her husband and raised thousands for Miracle Babies families.

“I had the absolute honour to be part of it and wholeheartedly enjoyed every aspect of training, fundraising and helping over 400 families with the $27,000 my husband and I raised for Miracle Babies,” says Katie.

“I promised myself that, as I ran the last few kilometres, I would do it again if and when the opportunity arose. So, when Kylie emailed me with a last-minute spot for the London Marathon 2020 it took me less than 10 seconds to say, “I’m in”.
