Why this event is called ‘Walk for A Cure’

In October of 2010 kidney cancer patient and fundraiser Adrian ‘Ade’ Cure was a guest speaker at our President’s Dinner at the House of Lords. He was a proud, strong, determined man and raised over £30,000 for kidney cancer, most of which was donated to us, before he died of kidney cancer in March 2011 after a four-year fight.

Jane Cure and walkers

In memory of Ade and all he had achieved, his brother-in-law Andy Coleman and Jane (Ade’s wife in picture on the left) organised the ‘Walk for A. Cure’ fundraising event, and were determined to smash the £10,000 fundraising target set, they raised over £18,000 to support the kidney cancer community.

You can walk as far as you wish, by yourself or as a group!
