Why 274 miles?
We’ve set the challenge as 274 miles because £274 represents 10% of the cost of a day of research at one of our Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence. That’s also why when you raise £274 or more, you’ll
receive a FREE special medal in September to celebrate your great achievement. So go for it!
Raise £2,740 and you could sponsor a day of research at one of our Centres and have the opportunity to create a unique tile for our Wall of Hope to commemorate your incredible achievement. More information can be found here.
