    Weʼve raised £18,590 to run, ride and fly for Joshy 💙💙

    Funded on Tuesday, 31st August 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Josh is an 11 year old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in August 2020. He is currently undergoing 8 months of radiotherapy and chemotherapy to fight it.

    So in support, Josh's Dad and a team of 40-50 year old middle aged men (made up of friends and family), are taking on the challenge to run, ride and fly to raise money for Josh's future. They will start by cycling all the way from Worthing to Mount Snowdon (around 300 miles), where they will then run up to the summit. The final part of the challenge is for the team to take on Europe's longest and fastest zip wire - some of the guys are absolutely terrified! They will set off on the 4th April for the week- long challenge.

    The challenge is being endorsed by Dr Andy Kemp MBE. The team are also being supported by Bike-Restored Worthing, owned by Richard Lee, who is going to assist the team with any bike repairs and keeping the bikes well maintained over the next few months.

    Some of the money raised will be donated to the Piam and Brown Ward at Southampton Children's Hospital who do an amazing job of caring for children who are treated there. The money donated will be used for patient, family and staff wellbeing, specialised paediatric oncology education for our staff and research to improve treatments.

      Thank you so much to every single person for their kind donations so far, it really means a lot to Josh and his family and also to the team taking on the challenge. We can’t believe that with still a few months to go until the challenge, the initial fundraising target has already been smashed and the team are still receiving lots of kind donations! We’ve therefore now increased the overall target by 50% to really push before the big challenge in April. We cannot thank you enough for your donations #runrideandflyforjoshy💙💙

      Earlier this week, Tim had the great opportunity of speaking to Eddie Izzard whilst she was running her 26th marathon (out of 31 in January!) for her campaign #MakeHumanityGreatAgain They spoke about Joshy’s story, the challenge the team have set for April and all of the amazing support they have received so far. It’s a great chat between the two of them and amazing to have the support from Eddie. #runrideandflyforjoshy💙💙 Follow the below link to watch it!
