Weʼve raised £530 to ride "Ventoux3", a charity cycling event in aid of Hersentumorfonds, a Dutch charity aiming to find a cure for primary brain tumours.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On 7th September I will be riding the “Ventoux3”, a charity cycling event that takes place on one of the hardest and most iconic climbs in cycling: Mont Ventoux. My cousin (the Ventoux3 veteran Max Laboyrie) and I aim to climb it not once but four times which will mean 180km cycled and 6,000m climbed, all in one day!
This is all in aid of Hersentumorfonds (Brain Tumour Fund), a Dutch charity aiming to find a cure for primary brain tumours, which thousands of people are diagnosed with each year. In the 7 years since its inception, the charity has raised over 1.5million euros that has gone towards brain tumour research.
As I want 100% of donations to go twards Hersentumorfonds, once everything is totalled I will add an additional 5% of my own money to the total to make up for the fee to Justgiving.
