Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

We are taking part in the 50/50/50 challenge to raise money for Dimbleby Cancer Care on Friday 5th June 2015. Journalist and Broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby is chair of the charity which was founded in memory of his father Richard, to offer care and support for the needs of people with cancer, their families and carers. This event has been set up to mark the 50th year of the charity, with an aim of raising £50,000 with an endurance walk of 50 kilometres, hence 50/50/50. We are walking as part of a team from The McMinn Centre.

Mr Derek McMinn, pioneering orthopaedic surgeon and inventor of the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR), has performed bilateral BHRs on Jonathan who describes himself as one of Mr McMinn’s ‘triumphs’.  Mr McMinn and his team were personally invited by Jonathan to take part in this event in which Jonathan’s new hips will enable him to make it to the finish line.

The walk goes through the night and passes numerous London landmarks, starting at St Thomas’ Hospital on the South Bank of the River Thames in the early evening, heading over Westminster Bridge to Trafalgar Square, through the heart of London’s theatre district, down The Mall and past Buckingham Palace to Piccadilly and Knightsbridge, along Oxford Street to the British Museum, through the City, past the Gherkin, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, then heading out to the bright lights of Canary Wharf before crossing the river to Greenwich as dawn breaks, following the river back westward, taking in the South Bank before finishing back at Guy’s Hospital in the shadow of The Shard.

Any donation however big or small will be greatly appreciated and go a long way towards our personal and team total, aiding this fantastic cause. It will also spur us on when our legs won’t want to take us any further!
