Run for children like Luka

Baby Luka was born very prematurely at just 30 weeks. He contracted the serious bowel disease NEC but thankfully he survived after emergency surgery and is now a healthy one-year-old. Action has funded a wide range of studies into premature birth and NEC, by running the London 10k for Action you'll be joining our fight to help stop babies being born too soon.
