OMNIA’S CHARITY SUPPORT

Omnia is committed to giving back to our community and also supporting charities which have a close affinity with our own people.

Here is one example of a situation… In June 2018 The Simkiss Family received the devastating news that their little boy Jude has a rare genetic disorder which affects his brain, they were told that worst-case scenario he might not live to his 1st or 2nd birthday. (Jude was two on the 15th October 2019). His condition is so limiting that he cannot move or co-ordinate his body in any way, is unlikely to ever walk or talk and is visually impaired. Jude has since been diagnosed with a rare genetic Mitochondrial disease.

Dale is one of the founders / owners of Omnia, both he and his partner Mel are extraordinary in the way they are dealing with their situation.

Team Omnia have rallied and although Dale is the main participant in all events, he is regularly joined by his work family.

The Reading Half Marathon in March 2019 and the Mizuno Endure 24 hour running challenge in June 2019, The Great North Run in September 2019 all kickstarted fundraising efforts and there will be many other different challenges through 2020 to raise as much money as possible for the following two invaluable charities;

The Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice and The Lily Foundation

Dale’s next challenge is The London Marathon in October.

Team Omnia have started a new challenge on the 27th June, we will aim to complete 100 virtual Marathons around the world in 100 days.  The 100th marathon will be run by Dale at the London Marathon on the 4th October.  You can track our progress here.

We will post all our activities and updates here and on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/pg/teamjudeomnia
