Cure Leukaemia for Kids were very pleased and proud to be one of the local charities chosen by Free Radio to benefit from the 2013 Free Radio Walk for Kids.
Cure Leukaemia for Kids was launched this year with a £1 million fundraising target to fund specialist nurses at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
This year all four Free Radio walks raised over £750,000 and 18,000 people took to the streets of the West Midlands to raise funds for local worthy causes - so if you were one of the many thousands who took part, a big well done and Thank You!
Please help us in the fight to save even more young lives by giving children access to ground breaking drugs trials that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
“We wouldn’t have the high cure rates that we have today if it wasn’t for the research we carry out. Funds raised from Cure Leukaemia supporters will go a long way in helping us continue our life saving research for years to come.”
Dr Sarah Lawson, Consultant Paediatric Haematologist
Department of Haematology Birmingham Children’s Hospital
We would be very grateful if you could take 5 minutes to go the Free Radio website and tell them why YOU think Cure Leukaemia for Kids should be one of the charities to be chosen for the 2014 Free radio Walk for Kids!
Leukaemia is the most common form of childhood cancer and almost half of those diagnosed with the disease are under the age of five.
