New stretch target

Thank you to everyone who has already supported our project, now we have the opportunity to further increase the money we are raising for the Brain Tumour Research Charity. Our project will support Brain Tumour Research Lab in Plymouth and help Devon FA reach their target of £5484!

Please keep sharing our project, the Brain Tumour Research charity needs your support!


A team of Devon FA staff will be taking on the Men's Health Survival of Fitness 10K Assault Course in London to raise money for the Brain Tumour Research Charity Plymouth Research Lab!

This season the Devon FA has teamed up with the Brain Tumour Research Charity and will be raising money for the Charity though out the football season.  During the season Devon FA will be aiming to raise a minimum of £5454 for the charity!

The staff at Devon FA has looked for an event to compete in to raise money but also the profile of the Charity and what better way than a 10K assault course around Wembley Stadium!

Eight members of staff from the Devon FA team will travel to London and complete in the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest! While you may think we are out playing football as part of our role I can assure you we are very much office based and this will be a CHALLENGE!

The money raised will support team entry, travel, accommodation and the specific team vest. With all the remaining money at the end of the challenge being paid to the charity as will any overfunding towards the Devon FA grand total. Full accounts for the challenge will be published to our sponsors and receipt’s will be kept.

 

 

 

Why the Brain Tumour Research Charity?

Established in partnership with the national charity, Brain Tumour Research, the Plymouth University Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence is Europe’s leading programme in developing new and personalised targeting therapies for low-grade brain tumours

More children than adults under 40 die of a brain tumour than any other cancer. Brain Tumours kill over twice as many women as cervical cancer, and more men under the age of 45 than prostate or any other cancer. Brain cancer incidence is actually rising: 23% higher for men and 25% higher for women in 2012 than in 1970. 55% of patients die within a year of diagnosis, compared with 4% for breast cancer and 6% for prostate cancer. Brain tumours are responsible for 20 years of life lost. The South West has the highest rate of brain tumours diagnosed per million in England. There are 120+ types of brain tumour.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our project and hope you can now support us by making a donation and supporting the Brain Tumour Research Charity!

The Brain Tumour Research charity is woefully underfunded, receiving just 1% of national spending on cancer research. This shortage of funding means a critical lack of researchers to investigate the condition and more effective treatments. At this rate, it could take another 100 years to find a cure. We need your help and your friends and family help so please share and keep this project going!

THANK YOU!
