Southern Tank Services Charity Challenge for Action Medical Research
posted on 4 January 2016 | posted in General News
So STS have signed up for "Race The Sun Brecon Beacons" challenge on the 25th June 2016. Race the sun is a fantastic challenge for teams of four in the Brecon Beacons, our team consists of Chris F, Ross, Chris J and Chris HJ. They will have to cycle 47 miles, climb Pen y Fan and then canoe Pontsticill Reservoir. All this will start at sunrise and they will have to be finished by sunset. This is all in aid of Action Medical Research.
Action Medical Research is the leading UK-wide charity saving and changing children's lives through medical research. Almost everyone has been touched in some way by our groundbreaking work, like the first polio vaccines in the UK, ultrasound in pregnancy and the rubella vaccine.Surprisingly medical research to help children is poorly funded in the UK. Action Medical Research has a critical job to do in helping fill this gap to protect children. The prospects for finding new cures and treatments are almost within our grasp. They have vital research ready to go – they simply can't fund it all. For more information on the charity please follow this link http:/www.action.org.uk/
