Brain Tumour Research

We fund long-term, sustainable research to find a cure for brain tumours

Charity Registration No. England and Wales 1153487, Scotland SC046840

Story

Learners and colleagues from Transition 2 have been developing their skills via a weekly Running Club to increase their fitness levels and experience the perseverance required to reach longer term goals. The ‘T2 Running Club’ runners have been increasing their distance and improving their finish times each week over the past six weeks.

The fun run:
As a milestone of achievement, they are working towards participation in Derby’s annual Sporting Futures 3km Run to be held around Pride Park on the morning of Sunday 9th April. 

Fundraising:
The College is also taking the opportunity to raise money for Brain Tumour Research, given our recent experience supporting our colleague Naomi throughout her treatment to remove a brain tumour in September 2016. Fundraising presents an excellent opportunity to support our learners to understand how they can make a contribution to society by working together on a shared project, as well as raising the profile of the great work undertaken by charities such as this.

How to support us:
We are hoping for sunshine, smiles and success on the day. Please give us a wave and a cheer if you see us on the day, and please support our fundraising efforts by popping a few pounds to our cause.

Information about Brain Tumour Research:
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. This is unacceptable!I am fundraising for Brain Tumour Research as they are the only national charity dedicated to funding long-term, sustainable research in the UK. Please help me fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.

Thank you for your support!
