Teddy’s Journey – Solving Kids Cancer
Solving Kids Cancer – Teddy’s Journey
Teddy is the young son of Jamie Mascaro, the director of 5aside.org. In April of this year, at the age of just 17 months, Teddy was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a life-threatening cancer with a poor prognosis. Teddy’s family are raising funds through Solving Kids’ Cancer for treatment which is not available on the NHS, which will require hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Teddy’s Big Match
On Friday 28th September an all day fundraiser was held in the centre of London at Marlborough Sports Garden to raise money for Teddy’s treatment. Local teams, individuals, businesses, family and friends got together for a day of football, netball and volleyball. It was an action packed day which saw participants venture into new sports they never thought they would try, which led to flying across the sand of the volleyball court, thundering in a goal inside the football cage before shooting through the hoops on the netball court.
We saw crowned keepy-up champions, netball goal scoring winners and of course the now infamous peg challenge!! There was a raffle with some brilliant prize giveaways all donated for free and a silent auction which saw generous donations to win a signed England shirt, Manchester City Shirt and Chelsea football.
As the sun set on the day everyone enjoyed drinks, food and cakes all of which were kindly donated from various places across London. The day raised in excess of £4000 all of which goes towards Teddy’s fund.
Thank you to everyone who came out on the day or donated.
If you missed Teddy’s Big Match then not to worry, this December we will be hosting a Christmas tournament. Details of the tournament will be available soon so keep your eyes out for what is sure to be another great day.
