    Story

    We are running the Tough Mudder obstacle course on September 23rd in support of the Rudy A Menon Foundation (www.RudyAMenon.org)

    Tough Mudder is a 20km military style obstacle course with up to 25 obstacles involving ice pools, electrocution, and a lot of mud! For an idea of the madness we have signed up for, check out the video on the official Tough Mudder Page: https://toughmudder.co.uk/events/2017-london-south

    About the Foundation:

    The purpose and mission of the Foundation is to raise money to fund research on Gliomatosis Cerebri (GC) and other rare and inoperable brain cancers. No state funding is currently allocated to conduct research on these diseases. We believe that no family should have to lose a loved one due to lack of research.

    Gliomatosis Cerebri (GC) is a rare brain cancer for which there are currently no treatments and no clinical trials. It is a very aggressive strain of brain cancer that typically affects children, teenagers, and young adults. It does not manifest itself as a lump, but instead is like a spider's web of cancer threads that spread deep into the brain, making it impossible to remove surgically, or to treat with radiation. The tumour originates in the glia, the cells of the connective tissue of the brain, from where it spreads very rapidly to other parts of the brain. The prognosis for the disease is poor and has remained the same for the past few decades. Through the Rudy A Menon Foundation working in collaboration with the Institute of Cancer Research and other similar organisations, we hope to fund the research on these types of diseases with then ultimate goal of finding a cure.
