Moonlit walk for Jared

24th October 2022

A group of 45 children completed the 8km route around Ditton and East Malling, last Friday 21 October, to mark the anniversary of Jared's death.

Jared, from East Malling, was diagnosed with soft tissue cancer rhabdomyosarcoma in 2019 when he was four, and sadly passed away last year, a month after his seventh birthday.

Children braved wind and rain on the walk, but were cheered on by supporters who came outside their homes to hand out chocolates.

Jared's old headteacher and staff from Ditton Infant School waved them off at the start, while members of St James the Great Church also came out to support the walkers.
