TBSC is happy to announce we have teamed up with Geoff Worsley, along with Brainstrust, to help those diagnosed with brain tumours.
“Geoff does not consider himself a runner, he considers himself a friend. When Geoff’s friend was diagnosed with a brain tumour, she spoke to him about the support she had received from Brainstrust. Feeling inspired, Geoff set himself a year-long series of challenges to raise funds in support of everyone who has heard the words, You have a brain tumour.” – Logbook (Brianstrust Magazine) September 2020, issue 11
Geoff is passionate about helping those with brain tumour diagnoses and last year ran 5 Half Marathons and 1 Ultra Marathon to support the work of Brainstrust.
This past year has brought some challenges to fundraising, especially during the ongoing lockdown. However, Geoff was able to overcome these obstacles and continues to push forward with fundraising, even if that means social-distancing will not allow a crowd to gather and cheer him on.
Geoff goes to say “Since lockdown, of course all major events have been cancelled, but so many converted their events into virtual. I ran a virtual 100km event, several half marathons and half a dozen 10k races and my first official marathon – London!”
Brainstrust provides the education, care, and support throughout the treatment process. They also offer cutting-edge research and create a sense of community to those with a brain tumour diagnosis. Brainstrust certainly stands out with their charitable work, contributing to an array of areas including:
- Focusing on the well-being of those diagnosed with brain tumours
- Accessible on a national level
- Addressing isolation issues and creating communities
In 2019, roughly 94% of respondents who used brainstrust.org.uk stated it was a helpful tool, giving resources and providing confidence. (For more information, please visit: https://brainstrust.org.uk/)
