As a lot of you have seen over the last few months now myself and Sarah, as of the 1st January 2015 will be embarking on a 3000 mile challenge to raise vital funds and awareness for Bone Cancer Research Trust.
With this charity being so close to our hearts after both losing our younger siblings to a rare form of Bone Cancer (Osteosarcoma). When Thomas (Luke's younger brother) and Caroline (Sarah's younger sister) both lost their long battles with this Cancer we both said we decided we needed to do something BIG to raise more awareness and more importantly vital funds for the research into this Cancer which isn't as well known as the common Cancers we know.
Only 40 children a year are diagnosed with this particular Cancer and only 1 in 10 children will live over 5 years of diagnosis. With figures not improving over the last 25 years relating to survival rate and early diagnosis we hope in anyway possible this challenge can raise more money needed to improve treatments for early diagnosis and also develop treatments for children suffering with this rare cancer.
The challenge we face is covering 3000 miles over the space of coming year beginning 1st January 2015. We will be doing it running, walking, cycling, rowing and many other forms of exercise possible. We will be holding events throughout the year where people can also donate miles to our target!
We have a Facebook page set up where up to date blogs will keep you all updated throughout the challenge, as well as a Twitter page and a YouTube page where we will also be VLogging our progress.
