The Big Relec Bike Ride 2018
We’ve teamed up with The Brain Tumour Charity, who do amazing work in funding pioneering research and raising awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours. Our goal is to raise £10,000 by riding from John O’Groats to Lands End in June 2018. The ride is now complete and you can read all about our progress on our ride blog with Strava profiles from each stage together with blow by blow accounts and pictures.
Our brains are incredible. They make us who we are, but sadly they aren’t immune to harm. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40. 30 people are diagnosed each day, and just 19% of adults survive for five years after diagnosis. Despite this, less than 2% of the £500 million spent on cancer research each year is spent on brain tumours.
The Brain Tumour Charity are the leading funder of brain tumour research in the UK, spending over £18.3 million to date on pioneering projects that will help adults and children with brain tumours.
From every £1 donated 80 pence is spent on their charitable aims, so the more we raise, the more will be invested in research. Research is funded through a competitive, fair and transparent process of best practice called peer review to ensure that only the very best research is selected that will have a real impact on those affected by brain tumours.
Here at Relec are committed to making a difference to everyone affected by a brain tumour. So, in June 2018, our Sales Director, John Stone and his partner Lesley will take on a huge sponsored cycling challenge over 1000 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End. They will cycle over 80 miles each day, tackling grueling terrain, bravely facing whatever the weather will throw at them.
Every penny you donate will be channelled into ground-breaking research and information and support services. Donate a minimum of £25 or more to our Just Giving page and we’ll send you a RELEC T-shirt*
You’ll need to register your donation (of over £25) and T-shirt request (and size) by e mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
