To raise funds to host a 24 Hour Fencing Marathon in aid of the cancer charity Trekstock.

About the project

The University of Surrey Fencing club are coming together to host their 3rd ever 24 hour Charity Fencing Marathon on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2015.

Cancer is something that effects all of us and recently it has had a great impact on the lives some of our club members. Therefore this year we will be supporting the charity Trekstock.

Trekstock are a young charity, they began by funding clinical research and have now evolved to a charity who support young people who have survived cancer. Their website gives a good insight into what they do:

However, to run this event we need to raise £600 to pay for equipment hire and out of hours staff to man the sports park overnight while we run the event.

Learn to fight with swords and enter a tournament!
