LEWIS MOODY FOUNDATION - Fundraising Support Volunteer
About the Brain Tumour Charity
We are the world's leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally. Committed to saving and improving lives, we're moving further, faster to help every single person affected by a brain tumour.
We're set on finding new treatments, offering the highest level of support and driving urgent change. And we're doing it right now. Because we understand that when you, or someone you love, is diagnosed with a brain tumour - a cure really can't wait.
About The Foundation
Inspired by Joss Rowley Stark; a 15 year old boy who sadly died from cancer, England rugby legend, Lewis Moody, and his wife Annie, set up The Lewis Moody Foundation in May 2014. Since then, The Foundation has generated nearly £2m for The Brain Tumour Charity.
The Foundation is administered by The Brain Tumour Charity with 100% of funds raised going towards The Charity's strategy to double survival and half the harm.
The Foundation team at The Charity support Lewis and Annie as well as many others in raising funds through various activities. This includes stewarding those taking on bespoke Foundation challenges each year.
