Weʼve raised £1,430 to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Sumner Malik
- Funded on Monday, 10th September 2018
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.
Update: Sadly, we received the news that Sumner passed away over the weekend. We have decided to still continue with the event and the funds raised will be given to the Brain Tumour Charity.
10-year-old squash player, Sumner Malik, was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma). DIPG is a type of high grade brain tumour which can lead to many serious neurological problems. There are only 40 cases of DIPG diagnosed each year in the UK. Sadly, every single one has ended in a tragedy.
There is still potential with doctors from certain parts of the world offering cutting edge treatment. However, the treatment is extremely costly.
The Malik family are raising funds to access this immunotherapy treatment in Germany to aid Sumner in fighting off the cancer.
Four of us (Dominic Long, Dan Boshoff, Dominic Major and Sam Cleaver) will be participating in a squash marathon on the 26th August, during which we will attempt to play squash for 12 hours straight.
We hope that this will encourage you to help sponsor us and raise funds so that Sumner Malik can begin treatment as soon as possible.

We have finished the 12 hour Squash Marathon! We are all absolutely exhausted but very relieved at the same time! Thank you very much to everyone who has donated. We really appreciate the support. The page will be open for two more weeks for those who would still like to donate.
