Our baby girl, Norah Faith, was born on 29th May 2018, weighing 8lbs. She was just perfect; the most beautiful little dot we'd had ever laid eyes on, it was love at first sight!

Unfortunately our brief moment of ecstasy soon turned into a nightmare as Norah showed no signs of life and didn't breathe for the first 18 minutes of her life. She was whisked off to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where doctors tried relentlessly to find any sign of hope that Norah would improve. But it was not to be.

After just 9 hours and 56 minutes with us, Norah spread her wings and joined the other angels in the sky. Her last 30 minutes were the most precious of our lives - my wife and I having cuddles with her, with no machines or wires keeping her alive. I will never forget how beautifully calm and peaceful those minutes were, just the 3 of us, even though we knew they would be our first and last with Norah alive in our arms.

In the weeks and months after Norah's death we have been supported by many wonderful friends and family, but also by charities such SANDS, 4Louis, Iolanthe Midwifery & Keech Hospice who are doing an amazing job at supporting families dealing with the loss of a child, and also providing research to try and prevent this happening to others.

I'm am proudly attempting 9 challenges in 2019, in memory of Norah Faith Coniam. I have no doubt Norah will give me the strength to complete each challenge. 

Challenges signed for so far include:
March - The BIG Half Marathon
April - Virgin London Marathon
May - Isle of Wight 106km Ultra Challenge
(Joined by Gary Coniam, Barney Tuttle & Max Tuttle)
June - Endure 24
(Joined by Kieran’s Climbers)
June - London to Brighton Bike Ride
July - 135 mile, 6 Day Walk
Aug - 24hr National Three Peaks
(Joined by Glen Coniam, Kevin Putman
& Ade Corcoran)
Sep - Great North Run

I am currently looking into some different ideas for the final challenge!

All money raised over the year will be split between the charities named above.
