Jasper's Fund - Jasper Campbell

Jasper's Fund
Raising money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and
Ronald McDonald House Charities

Jasper Campbell was diagnosed with Leukaemia in October 2011, at 4 months of age. He received a Bone Marrow Transplant at Birmingham Children's Hospital in March 2012. After initial tests the bone marrow had taken and he responded well, but after a few months his parents, Simon and Anya, received the devastating news that Jasper's Leukaemia had come back. He is now undergoing more Chemothrapy with the hope of receiving another bone marrow transplant in the near future when a suitable donaor is found.

Multiple Sclerosis Trust

The MS Trust
Providing information for anyone affected by multiple sclerosis, education programmes for health professionals, funding for practical research and campaigning for specialist multiple sclerosis services.

Team ride2spa rider Rich, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007. After having strange symptoms and many tests, Doctors found that he had Relapsing Remitting MS, and started him on a weekly dose of Beta Interferon to try and slow down the progressions of the disease.

Rich said after ride2spa - "The duration of ride2spa 2012 was the best and toughest week in my life! Sharing the experiences with 25 great guys, friends old and new, has made me realise how important having such a good bunch of people around you is! Having MS myself made the whole challenge a lot more meaningful, the feeling when we got to Spa was one you can't buy, you've got to ride 400 miles in 4 days to get it. I'll never forget it, I'll never forget the team, and I'll never forget the last climb up to Francorchamps!!"
