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 will be 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 kickstarted  fundraising efforts and there will be many different challenges through 2019 and beyond, 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 Great North Run on 8 September 2019.

Followed by:

19 Oct 2019 – Brutal Challenge – Alice Holt

5 April 2020 – Reading Half Marathon

26 April 2020 – London Marathon
