The Baby Races...for mums, dads and babies in buggies

Tommy’s and Buggyfit will be holding Baby Races in 2015 and we’d love you to take part! A Baby Race is a sponsored event for you to power walk with your buggy and baby in aid of Tommy's.

They take place in beautiful, child-friendly venues across the UK in June and are organised by local Buggyfit Trainers. It’s a great chance to dress up and have lots of fun too!

Sign up now!

Sign up here, select your local event and set up your fundraising page to register. Entry is free for most events but we are asking all participants to try and raise at least £50 in sponsorship.

Why take part in a Baby Race?

By taking part you’ll be helping other parents and their babies to have the best start in life. We’re hoping to raise £100,000 for Tommy’s medical research projects and we need everyone’s help. Find out more about Tommy’s lifesaving research.

We’re hoping to invest the sponsorship raised to open a new research centre dedicated to preventing miscarriage which affects 1 in 4 parents - please help us to reach that goal and make a big difference to many lives.

Fundraising is fun and easy; involving your family and friends in support of a good cause is very worthwhile; why not hold a coffee morning or ask all your family and friends to contribute a small amount.
