It's more fun taking part in a group
All money raised by the Southend Bikeathon will help to make a difference to the lives of those affected by leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers. One of the greatest achievements in our research is how we have transformed the outlook for children diagnosed with the most common form of leukaemia. When Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research was founded fifty years ago, as little as 1% of children diagnosed with a blood cancer survived. Now, thanks to the money invested in research grants, that figure has risen to 92%.
This is a significant improvement but we won't rest until that figure reaches 100%! Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research are committed to investing £140 million over the next five years and receive no funding from the government. All the money comes from fundraising events like the Southend Bikeathon and supporters like you.

Some reasons to support the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research
Bloodwise is the only national UK charity devoted exclusively to improving treatments, finding cures and investigating the causes and prevention of cancers of the blood (leukaemia, Hodgkin's disease and other lymphomas, myeloma, myelodysplasia & aplastic anaemia).
Leukaemias and lymphomas are the most common cancers in young men and women. 30,000 people each year - 600 of which are children - are diagnosed with one of these terrible diseases, and each person needs the skilled research that your sponsorship money will fund
