    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    On 27th August 2016, much to the devastation of all her friends and family, my sister, Stacey Burchett, passed away after a 5 year battle with Ocular Melanoma (eye cancer).

    When Stacey was diagnosed with this horrendous condition her life expectancy was for less than 12 months, and the fact that she was able to live to see her daughters turn 15 and 5 is a credit to herself, the wonderful staff at St Bart's, the revolutionary trials that Stacey took part in and all the people who supported her.

    In one such trial for Torcmek (AZD2014 and Selumetinib) Stacey was the first person in the UK to successfully complete the trial which enabled this treatment option to be offered to dozens of other patients.
    Having donated to many great charitable challenges over the years I always knew I wanted to arrange and complete a significant challenge in Stacey's memory and try to raise an amount of money that can have a material impact both on research on treatments for this horrendous disease, but also can have a more direct impact on those people that helped Stacey so much.

    Therefore, on 17th August myself and a number of other slightly crazy individuals are setting off from Stokes Bay beach, one of Stacey's favourite places in the Gosport area where Stacey spent her childhood, heading for Norfolk, the place she spent her most enjoyable adult years, ultimately ending up at Winterton-on-Sea on Sunday 20th August.

    We are choosing to make this journey by road bike, and given Stacey's love of the sea, we are following the coastal route the whole way.
    This means a journey of over 400 miles. Which as I have found out since I started training is significant!

    We have been training full-on for the last 3 months, and are stepping it up now with 2 months to go including numerous 100+ mile cycling days to make sure we are ready.

    This fundraising is to provide funds that will go directly into Ocular Melanoma research help to save other people from this awful disease.
