Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In September 2018 my cousin Lydia has become unwell with Doctors confirming that she has an aggressive form of brain tumour called Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). Lydia now faces her toughest challenge but is already showing great determination along with a positive attitude to defeat this cancer. She is currently undergoing a programme of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Lydia lives in Houston, Texas but grew up in Wakefield. A large majority of her friends and family are in Wakefield and would do anything to be there with her, all 4735 miles away. I came up with the idea of a team of us walking, running or swimming the same distance before her birthday in February and match the distance by raising £4735 in sponsorship and donations.
All you have to do is pledge a minimum of £20 to take part and then raise as much as you can through sponsorship. You will need to email or text me your weekly distances so I can keep a check on the running total and keep everyone up to date.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
Rosie's Wakefield to Houston - 4735 miles
I am hoping to raise £4735 for Brain Tumour Research because Lydia is currently 4735 miles away in Houston
We fund long-term, sustainable research to find a cure for brain tumours
