UBDS selected Blood Cancer UK as their Charity Partner in October 2020 launching our partnership with a virtual London to Paris in November.
Bringing the international UBDS community together, they raised £20,390 by running, cycling and walking the distance together.
The team smashed their fundraising target by 203% and outperformed their original miles target of 240 miles by travelling a collective distance of 736 miles.
Despite being apart, the spirit of community could not have been stronger as the team came together throughout the day to fundraise in aid of Blood Cancer UK.
This was the first activity in our partnership, which launched with a virtual lunch and learn with the Blood Cancer UK team and Patient Ambassador, Lewis Coleman who shared his experiences of blood cancer and ideas for fundraising based on his own inspirational activities.
We are delighted to be working with the team at UBDS as their charity partner in their efforts to fund blood cancer research, because together we can beat blood cancer.
