BUPA Great Birmingham Run


Thank you to everyone who took part in the Bupa Great Birmingham Run for Team Cure Leukaemia!

Team Red and Team White did us proud and everyone had an amazing day! Here's a video of Sunday:

Our 22 strong team of Red Hot Runners from West Midlands Fire Service ran the 13.1 mile route in full uniform and have so far raised over £8,700! Cure Leukaemia nurses also took part, alongside former patients 70 year old David Pritchard and Lloyd Powell and patient Karl Murphy who recieved his bone marrow transplant just 5 weeks ago.

Annie Woodhouse, who's 4 year old nephew Jack is currently undergoing treatment at Birmingham Children's Hospital took part in her first ever half marathon to help raise funds for Cure Leukaemia along with 455 fantastic runners.

We've reached our £100,000 target so we have increased it to £115,000 so please donate here and show your support to anyone you know who has taken the time to train and then take part in the Bupa Great Birmingham Run for Cure Leukaemia. To run for Cure Leukaemia in next year's event you can register here.
