National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Team raises incredible £10,000 with 10,000 steps challenge
A team that took part in our 10,000 Steps a Day in February challenge has raised more than £10,000 to help find a cure for brain tumours.
Nadia Majid and her 15-strong team of relatives raised the incredible total in memory of Nadia’s beloved son Rayhan, who died from a grade 3 medulloblastoma on Saturday 7th April 2018, at the age of just four years old.
Last year, Nadia and husband Sarfraz set up a Fundraising Group, which they called Remembering Rayhan, to help find a cure in their son’s memory.
Nadia said: “I want to say a huge thank you to everybody who donated or shared what we were doing. We received 362 donations and really raised awareness for Remembering Rayhan and the brain tumour cause. I am really humbled every time anyone does something in Rayhan’s memory, even now five years after we lost him."
“I loved doing the challenge and never found it mundane. And I had lots of little signs from Rayhan in the form of rainbows, robins, and white feathers. It was lovely to have a purpose and a target, as well as the camaraderie of walking with family and neighbours. In fact, it was so good we are going to do it all again next year!”
