The Backhouse Family Sunshine 10X Challenge

On the 21st October, the Backhouse family did a 10K walk to raise money for Sunshine & Smiles!


Samantha says:

“As a family, we are joining the Sunshine 10X Challenge by running / walking / pulling / pushing / carrying / dragging / cycling / scooting 10km! Nana and Gung Gung are joining us too! 

Sunshine & Smiles have been a lifeline of support since our daughter was born in May 2022. We have felt so welcomed by this wonderful charity and are so grateful to be a part of their amazing network.

Sam spent most Mondays of her maternity leave at their baby group learning so much and making friends for life. We can’t imagine this journey without them.

We really want to support all the priceless work Sunshine & Smiles do with some fundraising and hope you will help us.”


Thank you so much to Samantha and her family for completing their challenge, and if you’d like to sponsor them, you can do so here:
