Story

On Saturday 18th May 2024, we will be taking part in our Teddy's 10 Year Bike Ride. 

2024 will be a poignant year for us and for the charity as it will mark 10 Years since we lost our baby boy Eddie and founded Teddy's Wish.

Chris, a seasoned cyclist will be completing 100 miles whilst Jen, who hasn't been on a bike since she was a teenager, will aim to complete 50km. We will be cycling through the beautiful and scenic Chiltern Hills alongside other wonderful cyclists and supporters of Teddy's Wish. Both routes will be ambitious for us for different reasons!

As most of you will know, our charity Teddy's Wish was founded in memory of our darling baby boy Eddie who tragically died at the age of three months on 16th April 2014 when he became a victim of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome)  Our world was instantly shattered and we were left without explanation as to why our beautiful baby boy was no longer with us. 

Losing a child is the most unimaginable loss but we have been able to turn our tragedy into purpose through the work we do at Teddy's Wish. The charity allows us to do something meaningful in Eddie's name and to honour his memory.

The funds raised from this ride will allow us to increase our direct bereavement counselling for the many families so desperately in need of our support. It would mean so much to us if you would consider making a donation.

With many thanks,

Jen and Chris
