Bodie Hodges Annual Events
Firewalk and Tour of Bodie’s House
This is an opportunity for you to come down to Bodie’s House for a tour of our new premises, to meet the team, and to see how we support our bereaved families.
You will see how we run the charity, what events we have coming up, and what sort of activities we provide for our children and young people.
On top of this, you will have the opportunity to take on the mental and physical challenge of walking across hot coals!
There are 100 Firewalk spaces available, and we ask you for a non-refundable deposit of £25 and for you to raise £75 in sponsorship.
Please contact Lucy or Kellie to book your space.
Colour Blast Colour Run

London Marathon 2022
We have just 5 guaranteed places available to join Team Bodie in 2022 at the TCS London Marathon.
Once again, thousands of runners from across the world will be taking part in the TCS London Marathon on Sunday 2nd October 2022, and we would love to make 2022 the year we have the biggest Team Bodie taking part yet! We ask anyone interested in running for us to please enter the main ballot initially, just in case you are lucky enough to secure a place! Please also contact our Fundraising & Events Manager, Kellie Charge, by email at email@example.com to express your interest in running for the Bodie Hodges Foundation, using one of our ballot places. You will then be emailed a short form to complete. We ask that any runner who is given a ballot place pledges to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2,500 to enable us to continue to support families bereaved of a child (if you are lucky enough to secure your own place, there is no minimum fundraising pledge target).
We offer all members of Team Bodie fantastic fundraising support, giving you tips and inspiration on how to raise funds, as well as support through our social media channels. We will also provide you with a Bodie Hodges Foundation/Team Bodie running vest or t-shirt.
Bodie Hodges Annual Sports Dinner
In previous years we have seen sporting legends such as Frank Bruno, Martin Johnson, Jimmy Bullard, and Phil Tufnell come along and entertain us with insightful and often amusing stories about their life in sport. Held at Leicester Tigers, we are able to offer a high-quality evening in a relaxed atmosphere with a 3-course meal, auction, table games and some excellent support acts.
