This summer our Provost Professor Nick Miles will be joining the Vice-Chancellor Professor David Greenaway and 13 other riders on their 4th consecutive Life-Cycle journey to raise money for children’s brain tumour research and treatment.
Worldwide, over 30,000 children each year are diagnosed with cancer of the brain or central nervous system. Funds raised through Life Cycle 4 will enable crucial advances to be made into understanding the cause, nature, treatment and outcomes of childhood brain tumours.
The Life Cycle 4 team this year will ride to all 4 corners of Mainland Britain – covering 1400 miles over 17 days - from Lands’ End along the South Coast to Dover and then all the way to Cape Wrath and then follow the North coast to John O’Groats. Each rider is riding in honour of a child who has batted the disease. Nick is riding in honour of a brain tumour survivor, Wei Boyan, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour at 2.5 years old. Boyan was then successfully treated at Nottingham Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at the Queen’s Medical Centre, and is now a happy, healthy six-year old.
