We are very pleased to be supporting the Brain Tumour Charity at our Riverside Runs during 2019. Check out the first Richmond Spring Riverside 10k run right here.

The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours, making a difference every day to the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families.  

We fund pioneering research to increase survival and improve treatment options.  We raise awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours to get earlier diagnosis and to help families cope with everything that the diagnosis of a brain tumour brings.  We provide support for everyone affected so that they can live as full a life as possible, with the best quality of life.

We are committed to having the biggest possible impact for every person affected by a brain tumour, to defending the most amazing part of the human body, so that getting the diagnosis of a brain tumour no longer means a death sentence. 

Brain tumours are different to other cancers, as they affect the part of you that makes you who you are.  Living with a brain tumour has a significant impact on quality of life, as evidenced through recent research, resulting in the publication of ‘Losing Myself: The Reality of Life with a Brain Tumour’.

We believe that fighting brain tumours on all fronts through research, awareness and support is the only way to save lives, reduce long term disabilities and help everyone with a brain tumour and their families cope with everything that the diagnosis of a brain tumour brings.

We are members of the Association of Medical Research Charities, The Information Standard, The Helplines Partnership and registered with the Fundraising Regulator.
