Oscar Knox Appeal – Cycles to Belfast

Dear friend/s
Please be advised that during past few months, along with my friend Danny,  we had been working to set up cycles from various points in the UK and Ireland to Belfast on the 15th and 16th of march 2013
At present we have 101 cyclists and 12 support team members taking part, still growing and some places (accommodation still available)
Cycles will start at the following locations
Celtic Park Glasgow , stop over in Girvan
Leeds, via Liverpool
Where the plan is to raise as much money as possible for wee oscars appeal, allowing for oscar to get the much needed Neuroblastoma treatment
You may ask yourself, did you not contact us last September time when you took part in a cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh, or when you held bucket collections or the various other events last year
The answer is yes…..
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen complications, Oscar developed critical compressions on his heart, suffered a collapsed lung and his parents were being prepared for the worst, before some life saving surgery was performed
His mum, Leona explains the story better than me…
This means, that the  first 400 k raised requires to go towards paying for the the less than positive trip to Philadelphia in October, where Oscar had to go under go emergency treatment to save his life, due to problems with heart and lungs, before coming home in air ambulance some four weeks later.
therefore, in total the family, needs to raise a MIN of 650 K in order to start Oscars Neuroblastoma treatment,
Reason for email….
From Glasgow, I will be joined by some friends and family, including my wife Colette
On Friday evening we were  given the go ahead to continue to work with the Neuroblastoma charity, where on Saturday evening we started to set up some just giving pages
Personal page /s
team page , where each of our team members are starting to add their own pages in here
We ask you to help spread the word about wee oscar and if you could help donate that would  be appreciated
We are still looking for a number of corporate sponsors also, so if you know anyone who would be interested, please get in touch also
