Pedalling for Peyton: Birmingham Children’s Hospital is Total Motion’s charity of the year
Total Motion has made Birmingham Children’s Hospital its charity of the year in recognition of the tremendous care it gives to Peyton Rowley – the young daughter of our logistics manager Jamie Rowley.
Two- year-old-Peyton was born with a deletion to chromosome 17q12 – a condition so rare that there is no medical name for it. Peyton is the only known person with this deletion on a data base held by all countries with an advanced genetics department.
She is currently undergoing treatment at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and will need ongoing medical care for the rest of her life
As a thank you to the hospital, dad Jamie along with Total Motion colleagues and partners will be taking part in a 118-mile charity cycle ride on June 16.
They are aiming to raise £5,000 by cycling from our head office on Meridian Business Park to Sheringham on the North Norfolk coast.
Jamie said: “Peyton’s condition affects her in many ways but she is a very brave little girl.
“The care and attention she receives from Birmingham Children’s Hospital every time she visits for treatment has made the experience that little bit easier, not just for Peyton but for the whole family.
“Total Motion’s charity cycle ride will help us give something back to the hospital and we’re very grateful to everyone who is helping us raise money.”
Total Motion will be holding other fundraising initiatives throughout the year in support of our chosen charity.
