Amazing 8 year old runs for Molly Olly’s Wishes

Feb 19, 2021 | News

A schoolboy from Warwick has adopted the spirit of Sir Captain Tom Moore by running 62 miles around Hatton Park for Molly Olly’s Wishes. William Colegate ran two miles every day for a month starting on 17th January. His original plan was to raise £500, the typical cost of one of our wishes for a child with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness. But Will has been so successful with encouraging donations, including an appearance on BBC Midlands Today, that he upped his target to £2,500 and his total is now £2,696.

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.

Molly Ollys is committed to helping as many of these children and their families as possible, and works hard to raise the necessary funds to be able to help those who contact us.

You can help us do this by making a donation, joining in with our fundraising events, running your own events, using Give as You Live when you are shopping, and by leaving a legacy in your will. Please visit our How you can help page to find out more.
