In the past year, the team at Cure Leukaemia has worked closely with the team at Brindleyplace, none more so than when 50 fire-fighters from West Midlands Fire Service took part in a 50-hour human hamster wheel challenge under the bandstand, raising over £7,000. Back in 2013, Brindleyplace was also the chosen venue to launch Team Cure Leukaemia's 455 runners for the Bupa Great Birmingham Run, raising over £125,000.

In July this year, alongside the University of Birmingham we launched the “Birmingham. Let’s cure leukaemia” campaign which aims to help the city find a cure for blood cancer in the next 30 years - by coming down to Brindleyplace on Friday 12th December and voting for Cure Leukaemia, you will be helping us achieve this aim.
