Walk For A Cure

Kidney Cancer UK_Walk for AAde Cure was guest speaker at our last 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 the Kidney Cancer UK, before he died of kidney cancer in March 2011 after a four-year fight.

He had such a positive attitude to life that his brother-in-law Andy Coleman and Jane (Ade’s wife) organised ‘Walk for A Cure’ event in Ade’s memory, and were determined to smash the £10,000 target set for fundraising.

The walk began on Saturday 27 August, from Gas Street Basin in Birmingham, and many blisters were suffered walking 144.5 miles along the Grand Union Canal finishing on Saturday 3 September in Little Venice, London. They managed to raise over £18,000 in support of the kidney cancer community. Visit the Just Giving page here.
