On 17th July a team of 10 brilliant friends took part in a Charity It's a Knockout Event to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. We battled it out in crazy relay races, archery, mountain biking, basket ball matches, and numerous inflatable assault courses right through to the elite final four relay race!!! Out of 17 teams we came second - only beaten by the personal trainers from the gym!!!
Now for the serious stuff...... all of the money raised will be going to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research in memory of Tim Reeve who died from acute leukaemia in 2005, and in support of his inspirational parents John and Sandra who continue to do amazing charitable work to raise awareness and support young people with blood cancers.
Your sponsorship will go to Leukemia and Lymphoma Research a UK Charity solely dedicated to research into blood cancers including, leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. To give you an example of what your money can do in May 2011 they launched a unique network of clinical trials centres, which will give blood cancer patients access to new life saving drugs, sooner and improve survival rates. The trial is called "Tomorrow's treatment today." Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research rely entirely on voluntary support and receive no governmeny funding - so your contribution will make a difference no matter how big or small....
All of the team would like to say a HUGE thank you for sponsoring us - it means a lot to us all.
Thanks also to Chris Cobb for his continuing support for all our crazy events and once again covering all of our costs. Thanks also to Marty Prager of Sport Matters for our crazy team t'shirts.
