We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

In March Ritzy and Ben will be running the oldest road in England ‘The Ridgeway ‘ in aid of Cancer Research . A total of 87 miles over 3 days or 3 ultra marathons . Cancer research is particularly close to our hearts not least as Ritzy and some of his family have been diagnosed with Li Fraumeni syndrome , a rare genetic disorder that predisposes them to certain cancers .

Kevin ( Ritzy s brother ) and his wife Katie have already lost their daughter, Ella, to a brain tumour aged just 5 and seen their son Harry have a brain tumour removed successfully aged 12. Kevin himself is now battling his third bout of the disease and due to receive radiotherapy in February. Cancer has and is still affecting so many of our families , friends , work colleagues and people we know and love. This is why we are asking for your support on this massive challenge so Cancer Research can continue their fantastic work and hopefully one day beat the disease completely.

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.
