We've Received a request for help from Rosanna's mum to help raise money for the British Heart Foundation, please have a read below:
My name is Sanam Ogden and we live in Chorley, Lancashire. i have a 5 year old daughter who is a good swimmer and a successful fundraiser called Rosanna.
she is organising a swimming event, second year running in Chorley on 1st of August 2015. we need 200 swimmers and 30-40 volunteers.
Chorley Carnival, Adlington Carnival and Chorley Marshals will be helping us with volunteering jobs.
but we need help to get 200 swimmers in. can you please help us in any way you can?
Last year we had 80 swimmers and we raised £4000. Rebecca Adlington double gold medallist came along and supported Rosanna and her event. and after that Rosanna won ASA Fundraiser of the year 2014. which was her first national award at age of 4.
Rosanna swam a mile a week before her 5th birthday.
Rosanna is a heart patient, she was born with a rare type of tumour in her heart called Rhabdomayoma, she was undergone 8 hours heart surgery and survived. unfortunately doctors couldnt remove it all so she is still living with a tumour stuck to her heart, and she needs to be monitored.
Rosanna started to do fundraising since she is 2. up to know she raised more than half million Pounds for BHF ( British Heart Foundation ), we would like to help other heart patients like Rosanna. and that's the reason we are doing this.
can you please help us to get 200 swimmers from Lancashire? we really need help to have a successful event.
