Why run for ECHO?
By choosing ECHO, you will be making a difference to the lives of children born with heart conditions and their families, through some of the most difficult time they will experience.
The reality is that ECHO rely heavily on events like these to carry out our services, and due to COVID-19, our in-person fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed. We really value every single contribution to help us to continue being there for children, young people and their families when they need us most.
