Sahar’s 3 mile walk

This fundraising project has ended

This year Ayaan’s sister Sahar decided that for her 8th birthday she wanted to do something special that would honour her brothers memory.​

On Sunday 17th & 24th October 120 walkers, including children and adults completed a 3mile sponsored walk at the Heartwood forest in St Albans to raise money to go towards Ayaan JM Trust and Crohns & Colitis UK. Two charities that are very close to Sahar’s heart. ​

On the day, the weather was just perfect and our little walking legends were amazing. We were blessed with two days of sun and no rain. During the walk we took a break where the children and parents took part in Art and craft activities. They all had the chance to create super cute hedgehogs, dream catchers and do some leaf art. The day ended with the sun coming out while we all sat down to enjoy eating pizza, cakes , cookies and Pastries – well deserved! Sahar had such an amazing day and couldn’t stop talking about it throughout the rest of the evening.​

Our target for this walk was to raise £3,000, and we are thrilled to share that we successfully reached our goal, and have raised an amazing total £4566. This includes money raised on Go-fund & our Charity Tshirt/hoodie sell. ​

At Ayaan JM Trust we would like to take this opportunity to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to our wonderful, generous, and kind friends and families who helped us to make the event so beautiful and successful. ​

And finally we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, donated and shared our walk! Thank you! ​
