Father walks 200 miles in memory of his daughter

Words by Abi Scaife

One man is walking from Manchester to Edinburgh to raise funds for his charity.

Tell me more.

After the tragic stillbirth of his daughter, Kallipateira, Ben Moorhouse channelled his grief into a way to give back - for himself, and other parents who are forced to go through a stillbirth.

To do this, Ben set up The Kallipateira Moorhouse Foundation, a registered charity that raises funds for research into stillbirths - in particular, for Professor Alexander Heazell and his team at The Tommy’s Rainbow Clinic and Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre in Manchester.

Tell me about the fundraiser.

Ben will be doing a 206-mile nonstop Edinburgh to Manchester Extreme Challenge Walk 2023 - an amazing feat!

He is using this as an opportunity to raise funds for research into stillbirths, and has already raised over £800 so far.

If you want to give back to The Kallipateira Moorhouse Foundation, you can do so on Ben’s JustGiving page. If you want more information on the charity, or Ben and his fundraiser, you can find out more on their Facebook, or their website.
