Our friend and colleague Graham Stead lost his lovely son Tom on boxing day, to cancer. Tom was just 19 years old and as devastating as it is for Graham, his wife Jane and Tom’s three younger brothers, Graham has pledged to raise £100k to support the Bone Cancer Research Trust and Kamrans Ward at John Radcliffe Hospital, (75% to BCRT and 25% to Kamrans Ward).
CMI as a company is going to be doing a number of fundraising events throughout 2018 to help Graham achieve his target, one of which is to, in the words of The Proclaimers, literally walk 500 miles, then walk 500 more. A total of 1000 miles for Tom, with the aim of raising £10k.
The challenge will involve a number of staff from our GB & NI offices, taking on the clifftops, beaches and footpaths of the north Antrim Coast to complete a 30 mile hike, adding up to a total of 1000 miles ran, walked (or crawled!) in memory of Tom and for this great cause.
And of course, this is where you come in. We are reaching out in the hope that you will make a donation that will help us to help Graham reach his target.
No amount is too small and every penny raised will go straight to the two charities.
We will keep you updated on our training (or lack of!), and every blister will be bragged about!
Thank you so very much in advance. To read more or donate, simply click on the link below.
