Meet Courageous Coco!
Today young Coco is set to embark on an epic 5-mile trek with her trusty companion Ginny!
This seven-year-old super star was inspired by the incredible work of her mum, Biz. Biz is a midwife at St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and every day she meets the brave babies and their families who pass through the Unit, each with their own individual story but all united by the amazing, life-saving work of the NICU team.
There’s also another very special reason the work of the Unit is so close to Biz’s heart. In 1977 her sister Amy was born at 27 weeks and sadly died on the Unit at seven-days-old. Knowing first-hand the pain some families can experience has motivated Biz to help others in a similar situation.
And it’s clear to see this compassion runs in the family! When Biz returns from work, caring Coco asks ‘Who did you look after today?’ and ‘Are they getting any better?” With every gallop Coco and Ginny take during their terrific trek, they will be helping the very patients Biz cares for.
Her challenge will see her ride 5-miles and we want to wish this dynamic duo bucket loads of luck!
