The Smiths were blessed with glorious weather this weekend as they took up a one mile challenge in aid of KeeptheBeat, a Leicestershire based charity which provides support to families affected by congenital heart conditions.

KeeptheBeat estimate that 1 in 100 children are born with congenital heart defects (CHD) and the charity was vocal in the consultation that ultimately led to the continuation of children’s heart surgery provision in Leicester at the Glenfield Hospital. This provides a vital service to Midlands based families affected by CHD and saves the added stress of long journeys to other specialist centres.

The mile runs alongside the Bosworth Half Marathon and just after the distance runners set off on their run, little ones and their parents set off on the one mile route around the scenic Bosworth Water Park in Market Bosworth.

The atmosphere was wonderful, as always, and the Smiths were proud to take part, even though Ben had to bring up the rear when the youngest Smith decided that running wasn’t for her. With a shoulder ride from Dad, she made it to the finishing line!

The Back Room Chiropractic Clinic is proud to support charitable organisations. Ben and his family are happy to support KeeptheBeat as they have helped friends whose little ones were born with congenital heart defects.
