Royal Parks Half Marathon Sunday 12 October 2014

We are very excited as we have 10 runners for this wonderful race - an increase over last year's four.

Polly is running and also Julian Herbert, one of our faithful supporters!

Polly says, "The 12th October 2014 just happens to be the 12th Anniversary of the Bali bombing in which Dan, Annika and my other friends so sadly lost their lives. I was lucky enough to survive the bombing and despite suffering severe burns have been able to rebuild my life. I have been wanting to challenge myself for a few years but surgery, and then children, have derailed my plans, but with the Royal Half Parks falling on the 12th October I felt it was meant to be...."

A major burn injury can be a lifetime sentence. Recovery often involves prolonged hospitalisation and surgery, immense pain and a lengthy rehabilitation process. However there is an urgent need for support for burn survivors beyond their dismissal from the intensive care and treatment provided in hospital.

 

Dan's Fund for Burns, a registered burns charity was established by Polly Miller after her husband Dan, best friend and seven other friends were killed in the 2002 Bali bombings. Polly was badly burnt herself and learnt first hand just how painful and devastating, both physically and emotionally, it is to be burnt. You can read Polly's story in the History section.

 

The main aim of Dan's Fund for Burns is identifying those most in need of help and providing it in a swift and practical way. Polly saw the great need for ongoing support for those affected by burn injuries and realised there are many victims receiving virtually no support from their family or the health service. For more information please go to the Aims & Mission section.

 

Dan's Fund for Burns is here to help you if you are Burn Survivor and we are always pleased to hear from people like you. Some of their stories and contributions can be found in the Survivors stories section.
