Story

Thank you for taking time to visit my Just Giving page, my 7 year old daughter Ellie died from a rare Brain Tumour in 2015. Ellie loved cycling & could ride a bicycle without stabilisers when she was just 3 years old.

The Challenge

In 2018 I am planning to ride Ellie's little pink bike from Bristol Children's Hospital to Land's End, which is about 211 miles in total.The journey will take me out of Bristol city centre & south through Avon,Somerset, Devon  & Cornwall. I plan to reach Land's End about a week later.

Ellie's bike is from Islabikes https://www.islabikes.co.uk/ designed for a 7 year old so it is pretty small compared to my height of 6 foot. There are numerous physical challenges, as well as the distance that I will have to contend with.

The Charity

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children in the UK. Despite this, just 2% of the UK's overall spend on research cancer, is designated specifically to brain tumours. As a result, progress is slow and prognosis often poor.  The Brain Tumour Charity are committed to changing this and to date have invested over £18 million in to brain tumour research. You can read more about this here - https://www.thebraintumourcharity.org/our-research/

How can you help?

Please support me by donating what you can to this page. £250 could fund one day of research, so every penny really does make a difference.

Please also share this page with your friends, family &
colleagues & spread the word about my Ride on Ellie's "Little Pink Bike".
