We provide support and fund vital research to make myeloma history


Ian Brown and five friends are preparing themselves for a gruelling 24-hour, 290 mile bike ride to raise funds for charity after his wife, Anne, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

The group, who met whilst competing in triathlons, hope to have already raised £10,000 for Myeloma UK when they set off from London on the energy-sapping challenge on 9 May.

During the course of the ride the team will have to overcome tiredness, a lack of sleep, tough terrain and adverse weather conditions if they are to complete their non-stop cycling marathon.

Ian, along with Billy Lamb, Jimmy Croft, Vaughan Godber, Clive Hudson and Mike Odysseas aim to arrive in Durham the next day after an extremely challenging journey.

Anne was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in December 2014, shortly after a visit to her GP due to exhaustion. Myeloma affects the plasma cells found in bone marrow, which are responsible for protecting the body from infection.

Thank you for your kind donations and support.
