The James Newbury Challenge

The James Newbury Challenge

We are Taking It On in memory of our amazing friend James

December latest...

Never ones to shy away from a challenge the team are now taking part in the Cranked Up challenge on Sunday 20th December as one last push to raise vital funds for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

Rachel will be clocking up as many miles as possible on a bike turbo trainer in a 12 hour period, whilst Sharon, Nic and Steve will rack up the miles between them.

November Update

Our November Challenge 24 was a massive success with some awesome challenges achieved. Sadly James passed on Saturday 7th November, whilst Steve, Rachel, Corinne and Andrea were out completing the challenge. We believe James held on to see us start before passing away peacefully. He was such an inspirational, loyal friend and all around amazingly wonderful human being ❤️❤️. There is now a new star shining brightly in the sky ⭐️.

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and we are Taking It On.

Our amazingly wonderful friend James was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer last July and continues to fight!

So we are taking on the fight alongside him and taking on the Challenge 24.

Across the 6 & 7th of November we will be taking on various Challenge 24 challenges!

Steve and Rachel will be running 36 miles each in 12 hours. 24 miles of their own plus 12 miles each for James, they will be doing 3 miles every hour, starting on the hour, from 7am - 7pm!

Corinne and Andrea will be teaming up to run 24 miles between them in 12 hours, from 7am - 7pm!

Nic will be doing a 24km multi-sporter, 15km bike, 3km row, 3km run and 3km swim - her aim is to do it in 2 hours and 24 mins! 

Paddy is going to walk 24 miles, from Worcester to the top of the Malvern Hills Beacon and back in 12 hours.

Nicole & Marc will be providing crucial support and supplies making 24 fairy cakes for the team and another 24 fairy cakes for Marc to eat!!  

Please support us and our fundraising. Together we can make a difference and fund world-leading research to find that breakthrough in new treatments and improve the speed of diagnosis.

Pancreatic cancer is tough but together, We’ll Take It On.
