30th April 14

First five years of fundraising

Fundraising events for the Wegener’s Trust by families of patients have ranged from

200 mile cycle ride from Surrey to Swansea

world record 40 hours of 5-a-side football

abseiling off the world’s tallest hospital building

mother of four running the London Marathon

5k run

109km Tour de France cycle through the French Alps

This herculean effort on the fundraising side has raised £240,000 (close to £50,000 a year) in the five years since Professor D’Cruz and James Hancocks set up the Wegener’s Trust, clearly demonstrating the need that the Wegener’s Trust is fulfilling. Affected families are able to respond in a constructive way by helping fund targeted research into the condition.

The various lines of research into the processes and cell biology behind Wegener’s have been highly successful to date (see what we have found out so far) and should lead to better treatment for patients (see current research). This research can only be funded thanks to everyone’s successful fundraising.

Thank you so much.
