National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year

Test your endurance with this Father’s Day fundraiser

This Father’s Day weekend, join The Wake Fundraising Group’s 4.4.48 Challenge and raise vital funds to help find a cure for brain tumours.

The Wake Fundraising Group was set up in memory of Jonathan Wake, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in November 2019. He underwent emergency surgery and was awaiting immunotherapy treatment when a scan revealed more tumours had grown. Jonathan passed away in March 2020, just three months after his diagnosis.

Jonathan was a keen sportsman and on Father’s Day last year, his family and friends organised the first 4.4.48 Challenge in his memory. More than 300 people participated and together they raised £21,250.

This Father’s Day weekend sees the return of the challenge. From Friday 18th to Sunday 20th June, participants will set out on a gruelling test of their physical and mental endurance, running four miles every four hours for 48 hours – the equivalent of two marathons in two days.

The registration fee is £10 and once you sign up, we’ll send you a Brain Tumour Research t-shirt and add you to the special Facebook Group to connect with people completing the challenge from all over the world.

Up for the challenge? Click here to sign up today.
