Team story

[p]Maddie and Violet, both aged 10,  have committed to covering 100 miles over their summer holidays - mostly cycling but also hiking, swimming, running and rafting to raise funds and awareness for two charities close to their hearts.[/p][p]Maddie's Auntie who she sadly didn't get to meet was the same age as the girls when she was very ill. Her first brain tumour was operated on and she had lots of radiotherapy and chemo and lived in London hospitals, even attending school in hospital. Sadly the tumour returned and in those days it wasn't possible to operate again, but things might have been different if it was now. She died when she was 13 in 1991. She also did loads of fundraising even when she was incredibly poorly and was an inspiration to many, which was why Maddie was given her name as her middle name.[/p][p]Violet's granny suffers from MS, which limits her movement and causes pain. She attends her MS Therapy Centre weekly to manage her pain and mobility, it has made a massive impact on her quality of life. Violet is keen to do something to help the centre that helps her granny, to raise funds and create awareness so that other MS sufferers can benefit.[/p][p]Violet's granny attends the centre in Hertfordshire, there is a network of centres around the UK: - www.msntc.org.uk.[/p][p]The girls want to help each other to support their chosen charities, and have embarked on their 100 mile challenge. Funds raised will automatically be split 50:50 between the two charities.[/p][p][/p][p]The photo shows Maddie and Violet marking the first 30 miles![/p]
