RISING SUN – WALK OF HOPE

Posted on Updated on

We attach details of the RISING SUN – WALK OF HOPE.

I’m Matt, I’m the Community Fundraising Manager for Brain Tumour Research for the North region.

We’re organising a charity event called the Walk of Hope on 28th September in the North East and would be delighted if you would include the attached poster and / or event information in one of your publications or on your website.

The reason Brain Tumour Research needs your support is because brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more they kill more adults and children under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

We are building a network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence whilst influencing the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally and we are the only national charity in the UK that is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours.

Here are a few stories from Brain Tumour Research patients and supporters who live in the North East:
