On Sunday 31 August a group of not so elite athletes from the Gene and Cell Therapy group will be taking part in the London Bikeathon 2014 to raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

The 2 Lazy 2 Run CC will be cycling 52 miles – that’s more than a marathon, no mean feet given that many of them haven’t cycled for some time. No wonder they’re not running!

The money raised will go towards supporting Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research who are the UK’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of patients with all types of blood cancer including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research first started research into blood cancers in 1960 and your support means they can continue their ground-breaking research, which benefits patients today – and in the future.

If you would like to support 2 Lazy 2 Run CC then please visit their fundraising page below and donate as little or as much as you wish:
