Brain Tumour Charity (The)

We are moving further, faster to help everyone affected by a brain tumour

Charity Registration No. 1150054

Story

On the 15th of December, I will be raising vital funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, the UK’s leading charity dedicated to fighting this devastating disease, by attempting to swim 12 miles, ride 560 miles and run 131 miles, this will all take place in The Gym - Bournemouth (www. thegymgroup.com/find-a-gym/gym/the-gym-bournemouth/) 

I have been inspired to take this challenge on because my uncle, Alan, is currently suffering from a terminal brain tumour and doesn't have long to live.  This has been a really difficult time for Alan and my family and I feel like I need to try and do something to help raise funds and increase awareness of this devastating disease. Spending over 100 hours swimming, cycling and running will be very hard, but I know that I’m doing it for an amazing cause and this will help me get through it!

I have an amazing crew (Martin, Rob and Lou) who will be looking after me and helping to reach the goal of raising £2,000. I am also being supported by Jack Oat Bars (www.jackoatbar.com), BetterYou Supplements (www.betteryou.com) and have recieved huge support from The Gym (www.thegymgroup.com).
