Dad from Harrow to run 26 miles for charity

A software engineer from Harrow is raising money for his son Jinansh, who has faced numerous health challenges in his young life.

Ujas Doshi, 36, who lives in central Harrow has said that his young son Jinansh was born as a premature at just 23 weeks. Following that, he spent 153 days in the hospital and facing a variety of health issues such as pneumothorax, meningitis, and anaemia.

Despite these challenges, Jinansh has come out stronger, and his father wants to celebrate his upcoming 3rd birthday by running 26 miles to raise money for other brave children who are facing difficult challenges.

Ujas will be running 26 miles in Harrow’s parks, not only celebrate his son’s life, but also raise money for the development of new cancer care facilities at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Jinansh underwent surgery.

Every week, around five children in the UK lose their lives to cancer, and Ujas hopes that the funds raised through his run will help build a better future for children with cancer.

Ujas is calling on the Harrow community to support his cause, as any amount donated will go towards better care for children facing health challenges. He recognizes that the journey is not an easy one, but the resilience and strength of his son and other brave children have inspired him to take on this challenge.

Through this run, Ujas hopes to spread awareness about the struggles that families with sick children face and raise funds to support research and development of better care facilities for sick children.

His efforts are a testament to the power of love, perseverance, and the human spirit. The run starts today! To donate to Ujas’ fundraiser, please click here.
