Why we need your help

Team Jake

Jake Ellis was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma and sadly lost his battle in 2008, aged 5.

Since losing their son, Jo-ann and Nick have been tirelessly fundraising in memory of Jake, raising an amazing £204,000 and counting to support our work into rhabdomyosarcoma.

Team Jake has undertaken a huge number of fundraising events, including the annual Jake Ellis ball and entering a team into the gruelling 40 mile Keswick to Barrow walk each year.  

Team Jake also enjoys huge support from the local community, with many local schools and businesses fundraising for the Jake Ellis Fund.

I've just read Jake's parents' story in "Running the Smoke" where they were among the contributors to this series of articles by people who had run the London Marathon. Hope this wee contribution will help their campaign on behalf of children with cancer.
