Medway support 'Tour 2 Cure' children's cancer charity London to Hastings bike rideMedway (UK) Ltd, one of the UK's leading manufacturers and distributors of bearings, power transmission and motion transfer linkages, is proud to support children's charity, Abbie's Army, with their challenging Tour 2 Cure London to Hastings bike ride.
Brain tumours claim more young lives than ANY other form of childhood cancer. In the UK 450 children are diagnosed every year and for many the chances of survival remain low.
Among them is a rare lethal tumour so DEADLY it has NO treatment and its prognosis is UNCHANGED IN DECADES. It has a peak age incidence between 5 and 9 years old and the median survival... is just 8 - 12 months!
This fatal brain cancer is 'Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma' or DIPG.
'Abbies Army' formed after the loss of one of the 40 precious children affected by DIPG each year; she was only 6 years old when she passed away 5 months after her diagnosis.
On Sunday 29th June 2014 you can join us, and contribute vital funding for children's DIPG brain tumour research by riding the 'Tour2Cure'. This is a tough 70 mile route beginning at Crystal Palace, London and finishing on Hastings seafront, East Sussex.
We are going 'City to Coast' and working with leading researchers at The 'Institute of Cancer Research' who are trying to find targeted new treatments to bring hope. Every donation, no matter how small, can make a real difference for future DIPG families.
