Team Jackie RideLondon100 bike ride

In case you you hadn't heard, Team Jackie now really does have wheels! Still sadly no engines!  We will be riding the Prudential London Surrey 100 for the first time on 30th July, for the first time.  A scary 100 miles, starting from the Olympic Stadium, riding on closed roads through London, the Surrey Hills and back into London, finishing on The Mall. 20,000 riders will be riding the same roads as the professionals will ride after us - and the same roads used for The 2012 Olympic Road Race! 

We have now raised a mind-blowing £225k but the fight goes on!  We are now looking to raise £300k to enable a further 3 years research project. At last there seems to be some hope of progress with new research, including that funded by Team Jackie, offering real promise for the future.  But the fight has only just started and we need as many of you as possible to keep running.  With this ride, and 75 runners at the Cardiff Half Marathon in October, who knows, we may get fairly close this year!

Jackie lost her fight against pancreatic cancer on 19th July 2012, aged just 46. With the help of so many wonderful friends and family, she fought this dreadful disease with courage, dignity and determination. Qualities that those who knew her would recognise only too well.

We have chosen to support The Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. Pancreatic cancer is known as the silent killer. By the time it is diagnosed it is usually too late. It has the worst survival rate of any common cancer – only 3 in every 100 people diagnosed will live for 5 years. This figure has not improved in 40 years and now has the lowest survival rate of any cancer. This cancer is so aggressive, by the time it’s diagnosed, 90% of people will be told that they are terminally ill and given 6-12 months to live. Pancreatic cancer is the UK’s 5th biggest cancer killer yet receives only than 1% overall research funding. With a higher profile we hope that more attention and funding will be allocated to this disease. There has been an almost criminal lack of progress on pancreatic cancer and having seen this wonderful person suffer so, it is time to change this. With recent developments in genetics and immunotherapy, it feels at last that significant progress is within our grasp against this terrible disease.
