    Over this Easter bank holiday, instead of relaxing at home, six young men from Bryanston School are giving up their holidays to enter three teams of double kayaks for the grueling 125 mile Devizes to Westminster International canoe race.  This is four days of hard kayaking (day 1 34miles to Newbury; day2 36miles to Marlowe; day3 37miles to Teddington Lock;  day4 18miles to finish under Westminster Bridge).  The route includes 77 portages avoiding the locks weirs & lowest bridges (carrying your heavy kayak, whilst running over various distances on dry land) and camping riverside by night.  To put it in context, the race was originally devised by the armed forces for specialist training.

    For more information about The Silas Pullen Fund please visit www.silaspullenfund.com  

    for more information about the challenge visit www.dwrace.co.uk 

    Please help to raise money so the vital research can take place and other children’s lives can be saved.  Your money will also massively encourage these 16-18 year old men to complete an amazing challenge.

  • Park-House-swim

    Four years ago, 11 year old, Silas Pullen died from an aggressive brain tumour. Silas's two older brothers are in/have been in Park House and his youngest brother will hopefully join the house this September. 

    After Silas's death his parents set up the Silas Pullen Fund, under the umbrella of The Brain Tumour Charity, in an attempt to increase awareness and improve  cancer funding for Brain Tumour research. Brain Tumours are the biggest cancer killers of young children, yet receive a tiny % of all cancer funds. The Silas Pullen Fund wants to change this so that, hopefully, other families facing the same situation will have more hope and access to improved treatments. All money raised by The Silas Pullen Fund goes directly into paediatric brain tumour research, driving forward trials and access to information.

    I will be participating in a self supported Grand to Grand Ultra course in Utah, USA, which covers approx.170 miles spread over 6 stages in 7 days. We will encounter a mix of desert and other terrain including hard packed sand, sand dunes, red rock climbs, rocky roads, slot canyons and rattle snakes! 

    This is in honour and in aid of a very good friend's son, Silas, a young boy whose life was taken away before his time. He tragically died of a Brain tumour and here is why I pledge and ask you to donate to this worthy cause.

    Brain tumours are the biggest Cancer killer of children and receive very little funding – this needs to change. When Silas relapsed, he was put on drugs that were 40 years old, they didn't work then and don't work now. We would like these children to have more up to date access to medicine, to give them a chance of a cure. So all the money given to the Silas Pullen fund goes straight into driving innovative research for paediatric high grade gliomas so that we can find more treatments.

    The brain tumour charity have ambitious plans to double the survival of brain tumour patients over the next 10 years.

    Please donate what you can.

    So I've entered the Bungay (a'hem) Half Marathon
    again - but this year I felt torn about fundraising - can I really ask
    people to dig into their pockets one more time..? 

     'Hell, yeh!' 

    I think of Silas Pullen every time I run, even though his mum tells me he didn't think much of running, being 'more of a cricket and rugby chap' himself... 

    And then there was this...

    Over the past year, I've been blown-away by the indomitable and all-round awesome spirit of my friend Claire Gay, who is fighting ovarian cancer tooth and nail, whilst managing to rock the most stunning hair ever (see pics below). So I figured I'd ask her if I could run for the charity of her choice this year and maybe do some sort of joint page.

    But Claire didn't want me to run for an ovarian cancer charity; she wants me to run for Silas's charity again. She's fed up with 'bloody cancer' and wants to do something positive and pro-active. So she's channelling some of her fiercely-determined and fabulous spirit into raising awareness and much-needed funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, and the ongoing research into finding a way to cure and more effectively treat this nasty disease that is still the biggest cancer killer of children and young people in the UK.

    So this year, please support Claire Gay by remembering Silas Pullen and donating to the Brain Tumour Charity.

    Thank you xx

  • RugbyWorldCupFinal

    As you are aware, for the passed two years I have been working with the Rugby World Cup 2015 on lead up and legacy projects. This gave me the opportunity to purchase tickets before they went on general sale. I was lucky enough to secure two tickets to the final (which naturally I hope England will be in!) and as you can imagine it has been a very difficult decision to decide who to take with me, so I thought I would use this opportunity to raise some money for a very good cause The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Silas Pullen. 
    As many of you may be aware Silas Pullen, died from an aggressive brain tumour aged just 11. The survival statistics for children with brain tumours have not changed in the last 50 years which is shocking and we want to help change this. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children globally and yet receive very little in the way of funding.

    I have asked you as you are in the small select group of friends who i think it would be fantastic to share this momentus occasion to donate a minimum of £50 to this Just Giving Page and one week prior to the final Sarah Pullen will make the draw from all those that have pledged to determine who is coming with me. This will include transport to and from Twickenham. All of the pledges will go to the Silas Pullen Fund and I have covered the cost of the tickets which are £315 each and sold out a long time ago...SO GET PLEDGING AND GOOD LUCK! Terry x

    Hi Everyone,


    On the 28th November, we’re both running The Bagan Temple Marathon in Burma for The Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Silas Pullen. It will be a testing challenge in the dust and 30 degree heat!

     

    Not long ago family friends lost their son. Silas was 10 years old when he was diagnosed with an aggressive, malignant brain tumour. Tragically, after a long and extensive 17 months, the chemotherapy couldn't contain the growth of the tumour and he sadly died. 


    Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and yet they receive just 2% of the national spend on cancer research.


    We would be so grateful for any donations, however big or small, to help with our fundraising for this worthy cause.

    Em and Weeze xx

    Too many lives are cut short too soon and little Silas Pullen was one of the too many.  So please support the Silas Pullen Fund and the Brain Tumour Charity so that more research can be done to prevent the largest childhood killer in the UK.  We will always remember Silas for that happy, cheeky boy who made life so much more interesting when he was around! We will never forget. So please help me and all those others also taking part brave the Hever Castle triathlon and support Silas at the same time.

    Hi Everyone,

    For the first time in 14 years my hair will be chopped by about 25cm! 

    The hair will be donated to The Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment. 

    The money I raise through your generous donations is going to  The Silas Pullen Fund.  Silas was a very brave boy  from my primary school  who died  in December 2013 at the age of 11 from an aggressive brain tumour.  

    The Silas Pullen Fund was set up by Silas' parents under  The Brain Tumour Charity to raise funding for the much needed research into paediatric brain tumours.   Brain tumours are still the biggest killer in children and young people and yet less that 2% of national cancer funding is spent on brain tumour research. The  Silas Pullen Fund aim is to help change that and at the same time give hope to any other family that suffers because of it.  

    I will have my hair cut on September 1 and I will post photographs for all of you to see. I really hope everyone can give something no matter how small, please donate and check out The Silas Pullen Fund as well.

    On Friday 12th June, 50 girls from Walthamstow Hall and 50 boys from Tonbridge School will be doing a 3-legged walk around the athletics track at Tonbridge to raise money for The Silas Pullen Fund. Everyone will be walking 10 laps in total (4km), walking each lap tied to someone different. It will test everyone's skills of co-ordination and communication and is much more difficult then it sounds - try it at home if you don't believe us!

    Oscar's 11 year old brother, Silas, died in December 2013, 17 months after being diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. After Silas's death, Oscar's family set up the Silas Pullen Fund under The Brain Tumour Charity with the aim of raising much needed funding for research into paediatric brain tumours. A young person has as much chance of dying from a brain tumour as they do from meningitis. In fact brain tumours are the leading cancer killer of children and young people - yet astoundingly less than 2% of national cancer funding goes into brain tumour research.The Silas Pullen fund wants to help change this and give other families  hope.

    Having read all about The Silas Pullen Fund on Facebook, Sophy and Beth really wanted to plan an event to raise money for this incredibly worthwhile cause. Together with Oscar, Ollie and  Sam, Sophy and Beth have worked hard to make their initial ideas become reality, and hope that the evening raises as much money as possible, and that everyone has lots of fun for a good cause.

    We miss our friend Silas, who died in December 2013, Forever 11.  Silas died of a malignant brain tumour - the biggest cancer killer of children - however, very little money is spent on research and development in this area.  It receives only 1% of cancer funding in the UK.  To honour Silas' memory and raise money and awareness, on Saturday May 23rd we will be walking 13 miles, 3-legged, round Bewl Water Reservoir, a big challenge.  We hope to laugh and sing our way round.  We know Silas would approve!

    We are participating in the Electric Run to remember Silas Pullen and raise money to help other children who suffer from brain tumours.  

    Silas Pullen sadly passed away just after Christmas 2013,  at the age of 11, after suffering from a 17 month battle with an aggressive brain tumour.

    Brain tumors receive just 1% of the national spend on cancer research. We are raising money so that more children can be supported, and are able to live the full life they deserve. 

    Thank you for supporting us and all your kind donations. Remember, however small, every penny counts towards making a difference.

    First thing you should know....I hate running, I am much happier in the water and thanks to those of you who supported my swim last summer!! But you can't always do the things you like and life certainly doesn't play fair, so I am running 10k in London on the 12th July....not backwards though as was suggested by one person! (yes it was Ben).

    Not long ago my lovely friends Ben and Sarah lost their wonderful, son Silas to a brain tumour. Silas was a happy, healthy 10-year-old boy until he was diagnosed with a high-grade glioma in August 2012.His brain tumour was so aggressive that surgery and extensive chemotherapy could not contain its growth and Silas lost the battle against the tumour that he had named BOB,  just after Christmas 2013. He was 11 years and 9 months old.

    Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and yet very little, less than 2% of the +£500 million spent on cancer research, goes on brain tumour study and developing new drugs in this area?!! I am running to raise money for vital research and to to try and raise the profile of this woefully underfunded killer. 

    If you know me then you will know I like swimming a lot more than I like running, so please dig deep.....I will be!

    Hello All,

    This year I have been fortunate enough to get a place in the London Marathon. To be honest I entered through quite selfish reasons, (getting back in shape and for the personal achievement mainly) and had initially contemplated not running for a charity at all. 

    This was until my wife reminded me of the Silas Pullen Trust. Our friend’s son Silas Pullen died just after Christmas, 2013 from a major brain tumour aged just 11.  For those of you that have children, please just try and imagine how devastating this is to a normal happy family. He fought hard for 18 months with 2 major brain ops.  It’s just so hard to believe and unfair. 

    The Silas Pullen fund has been set up in his memory, to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, which directly funds scientific research into brain tumours.

    Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40. Research offers the only real hope of dramatic improvements in the diagnosis, treatment and management of brain tumours. Over £500 million is spent on cancer research in the UK every year, yet less than 2% is spent on brain tumours.

    If dragging my slightly flabby backside around 26 miles of London can help raise awareness and money to fight this truly horrendous disease, then it’s the least I can do.

    Please give what you can.  Anything is gratefully received.

    Many thanks

    Scott

    2 years ago, my nephew Silas was diagnosed with a brain tumour. 9 months ago, he lost his fight. Actually it was a very one sided battle, treatment for this disease has not changed for the last 30 years and research has been seriously underfunded. Paediatric Brain cancer is now the biggest killer of kids.  Did you know that? Probably not, which is why I am doing this challenge. These things happen to other people don't they, well not now they don't, I am 'other people'  and I am damned if I'm going to have my heart broken and not do something constructive about it. Please sponsor me and help my family use our grief in some positive way?

    This weekend I’m taking on a triathlon at Hever Castle and would like to raise a little money in memory of Silas Pullen for Brain Tumour Charity (The). 

    Silas lost his battle in December 2013 and I now know that brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and yet very little is spent on research and development of new drugs in this area. All the fantastic fundraising efforts in Silas's name are already making a real difference enabling ground breaking trials to be held. So, please help me raise some more funds to keep this momentum so that vital research can take place and other children’s lives may be saved, and their families not have to suffer as his.

    Any donation would be welcomed, and I promise not to post any photos of me in lycra!

    Thank you - Adrian

    Last December my friends Sarah's and Ben's lovely son Silas died of a brain tumour that no surgery or chemotherapy was able to beat. This type of cancer is the biggest cancer killer of the under 40s, and yet research into its treatment is seriously underfunded. 

    I'm skating the Berlin marathon so that I can ask for your help in raising vital funds for the Brain Tumour charity. And I'll skate as fast as I can, in Silas' memory and in honour of his bravery and suffering. It's the least I can do for now, not much, I know, but with your help it can really amount to much more.

    Silas will be forever 11: research is the only way to help  kids diagnosed with this cancer live to be 111 instead. Let's make it happen.
    THANK YOU

    At the end of last year my lovely friends Ben and Sarah Pullen lost their wonderful, son Silas to a brain tumour. Silas was a happy, healthy 10-year-old boy until he was diagnosed with a high-grade glioma in August 2012.His brain tumour was so aggressive that surgery and extensive chemotherapy could not contain its growth and Silas lost the battle against the tumour that he had named BOB,  just after Christmas 2013. He was 11 years and 9 months old.

    My swim over just under a mile is across the Swale which has some of the fastest tidal currents around the English coast and will end at Harty Ferry where Silas and his family made this film “Always look on the Splodge side” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSCsUk0vk7Q&index=1&list=PLUU0EjnRH13ID2lym6CTPG6tCy81tbZg4

    Sarah and Ben have set up a fund in his name with the Brain Tumour Charity to support research into the treatment and cure of childhood brain tumours.

    Our friend’s son, Silas Pullen, died at Christmas, from an aggressive brain tumour aged just 11.


    The survival statistics for children with brain tumours have not changed in the last 50 years which is shocking and we want to help change this!

    When Silas was diagnosed his parents were told he would die in 12-18 months and there was nothing that could be done to save him. The Doctors took all their hope away in one fell swoop.  After Silas’s death, his parents set up a fund in his name with the Brain Tumour Charity to help fund ground-breaking research trials for pediatric brain tumours, so that other parents in the future could have more hope and not hear those same dreadful, heart-breaking words.

    Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children globally and yet receive very little in the way of funding. So please help us do our bit to change this by sponsoring us to drag ourselves around this obstacle course and get all muddy for Silas, something we know he would have loved to have done and would have made him laugh a lot.

    I'm running this for Silas - he's my nephew and he died at Xmas from the kind of brain tumour you just can't beat - not today anyway, but with your help we can raise some money for the Brain Tumour Charity which funds the kind of research that can make a change. Two years ago while in the middle of his illness he came out to support me the last time I ran this - now I'm supporting him, remembering him and always loving him.

    I had pneumonia in March of this year, a parting gift from my Papa, and I was determined to do the Mount Ephraim 10K again this year as back then I couldn't breathe very well and I had put on a load of weight convalescing.  (The picture above is me last year just after the race)!

    I have also become aware of fund raising for The Brain Tumour Charity via The Silas Pullen Fund and felt it better to raise money for a good cause rather than just do the run as a personal goal.  Silas Pullen was a boy at Bertie's school and although we never met him we have become very aware of the fund raising efforts of others and of course of his sad story.

    Silas Pullen, a pupil at my school, died last year on December 29th from a malignant brain tumour.

    First diagnosed in August 2012, Silas underwent intense treatment including chemotherapy and many blood transfusions. Throughout that time he never gave in or lost his wicked sense of humour and came into school as often as he could to be with his friends.

    The song 'I Will Walk 500 Miles' by The Proclaimers was one of Silas' favourites and so I have decided to run 500 miles this summer to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. This equates to 5.43 miles every day for 92 days (June 1st - August 31st).

    Brain tumours are the most common malignancy and cause of cancer death in children. They kill more people under the age of 40 than any other cancer. 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year in the UK yet only 0.7% of cancer funding goes into brain tumour research.

    I want to raise at least four times as much as miles run! 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.

    Last year whilst finishing our GCSE exams two friends and I wanted to set ourselves a challenge and we came up with the decision to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats. One year, lots of planning and a practice trip to the Lake District later and we will set off in the beginning of July 2014 aiming to complete it in 14-15 days.

    I want to use this opportunity to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. Silas Pullen, a family friend, died at the age of 11 in December 2013 just 17 months after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour.

    Silas was full of life and  had so much to offer the world but this was all taken away from him by this terrible disease. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and yet very little is spent on research and developing new drugs in this area. Please help me raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity in Silas' memory so that vital research can take place, other children's lives may be saved and other families do not have to suffer.

    I have never in all my 48 years done a sponsored ride, walk or any such event, always feeling reluctant to ask others for money,  so the combination of a friend's suggestion, a great cause and middle age restlessness prompted me to take on this 9 day (970 miles) ride spending 8 nights in a tent.

    The cause is The Brain Tumour Charity.  Silas Pullen was a boy at my younger son's school who died of an aggressive brain tumour in December. Silas was 11.  Incredibly, survival rates for children with brain tumours have not improved in 50 years and at one point Silas was on drugs that are 30 years old and were not effective then. This charity is leading research in the UK in changing this. Money you donate will go specifically to paediatric brain tumour research and a fund set up in Silas' memory. 

    I started training in November in foul weather and after falling off several times (most spectacularly when I couldn't unclip my shoes at a set of traffic lights in Hastings and landed on a Mini) am getting used to most of the cycling world. The saddle is another story...

    Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

    Our friend Silas was diagnosed with an aggressive, malignant brain tumour in August 2012.  He named it 'BOB' - the adventures of which you can see by clicking the link below - and for the next 17 months he fought 'BOB' heroically.  Sadly he lost his brave battle last December at the age of 11.

    So we are cycling 60 miles from our school in Hawkhurst to Silas' school in Broadstairs to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity in Silas' memory to help fund vital cutting edge research into the most common cause of cancer death in children.  

    There are some links below where you can find out more about Silas' story and this devastating disease.

    Please help us raise money by donating here and we will do our best to cycle the full distance without moaning….

    Thank you.

    Our friend’s son Silas Pullen died just after Christmas, from a major brain tumour aged just 11 (see the pictures of him below).  For those of you that have children, please just try and imagine how devastating this is to a normal happy family.  Sarah and I both have children, and get that ‘pit-of-your-stomach’ feeling, which, just the thought of this brings.  Silas was a normal jovial, funny, cheeky lad.  He fought hard for 18 months with 2 major brain ops.  It’s just so hard to believe and unfair.   So, Emma Beckham and Sarah Alexander wanted to do something about it and to raise money, and as much of the bloody stuff as possible to help others out there like Silas.  

    We wanted to get out there and actually do something to try and raise money to help to find a cure for the horror, that is cancer, in the form of Brain Tumours.  Sadly, this type of cancer doesn’t get enough funding despite being one of the major killers of adults and children under 40.  So please please donate anything you can!


    Seeing as Emma broke her leg last year and is still on the mend, a 26 mile marathon was never going to happen.  So a swim seemed the obvious choice, but it had to be challenging.  Ok, let’s do a mile.  Yes cool, no problem… IN THE DOCKLANDS! Errrr (pause), ok!   With a fear of open water, boats and sharks, we decided that this would be the perfect test. We will be tracking our training programme and our first steps into the unknown on a blog  (we have NEVER swum in outdoor water… sad but true!)

    So if you can donate literally anything, and we would be so grateful.  We want to raise as much dosh as possible to give to these clever scientist people, to try and stop this disease killing our children and families.

    On December 29th 2013 my cousin Silas died of a brain tumour. Brain tumours are one of the biggest killers in people aged 1-40 and less than 1% of the money raised for charity is spent researching and finding a cure.

    In order to raise money for Silas I have decided that on 16th April 2014 I will take a tube journey from one end of the Central line to the other... (West Ruislip to Epping) A journey which takes 72 minutes.

    Which I grant you isn't very difficult however.. depending on the amount of money raised, will depend on what I wear/do on this journey.

    If I raise:

    £100-£250 

    I will wear my Brain Tumour Charity T-shirt collect money in a bucket

    £250 - £400

    I will do the same as before however shirtless...

    £400-£500

    The same again but this time only in boxer shorts however ( with a Tshirt )...

    £500-£1000

    I will dance and sing around the tube wearing only boxer shorts and I will pole dance the whole way...

    £1000 - £2000

    I will wear a bright green mankini and do the pole dancing however I will sing aswell

    £2000 plus...

    I will do the same as before however I will give one lucky stranger a lap dance...

    Please give generously

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    I ran the Bungay Half Marathon to raise money for Silas's fund, the Brain Tumour Charity on Sunday 6th April. I was really nervous and it was as tough as I'd feared (specially the sneaky hills at the beginning). I thought I was going to have to walk the last 3 miles because between mile 9 and 10 my left knee went very 'peculiar/painful'. And then I thought how utterly insignificant this was in comparison to what Silas must have been through and I bloody-well ran on. I thought perhaps he might have been watching and he wouldn't have been impressed if I'd wimped-out!

    Silas was quite simply an awesome kid who blazed with life during his 11 years. He was a star and he leaves a huge hole in his family. But the impact of his loss has touched everyone who knew him and even those who didn't. 

    So I wanted to raise a bit of money for the fantastic charity that's trying to find a way to combat the horrid sort of brain cancer that took Silas far too early in the hope that one day, they'll find a treatment that will give hope and even save other children like him.

    THANK YOU to everyone who spurred me on in my humble half marathon by the thought we'd be helping more kids like Silas.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    My father and I are running the Windsor Half Marathon on the 25th May 2014; we are running in aid of a super little boy who died on the 29th December 2013 of a brain tumour aged only 11.

    His name was Silas Pullen. He was a happy, charasmatic and sporty boy and a very special friend of my younger brother. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour in August 2012. He underwent radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery on a number of occasions but in September 2013 a final MRI scan showed that the tumour had not gone and he lost his battle just after Christmas.

    He fought this tumour with tremendous courage and continued to live life to the full. Throughout his battle he continued to play sport; his favourite was cricket and he managed to score his first half century in the summer of 2013. He managed to play cricket up until a month before he died.  He had an amazingly supportive family which included his parents Ben and Sarah and his three brothers, Oscar, Rufus and Inigo. 

    Please give as generously as you can.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

    Our 11 year old son Silas died just after Christmas 2013 following a 17 month battle with an aggressive, malignant brain tumour.

    He was full of life and had so much to offer the world but this was all taken away from him by this terrible disease. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and yet very little is spent on research and developing new drugs in this area. Please help us raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity in Silas's memory so that vital research can take place and other childrens lives may be saved and their families not have to suffer as we have.

    Thank you.

    Ben and Sarah and the boys
