Active Schools Edinburgh Fundraiser 2018

The Active Schools team are planning to do a Fundraiser every year for a variety of causes.  This year we decided to support Luke (aged 7) who was diagnosed Christmas 2016 with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) which is a form of brain tumour. His family was told that he would have 9-12 months to live. Last April, the family were given a ray of hope about experimental treatment in Mexico which they just had to take. Luke has surpassed all the doctors expectations and is staying strong throughout the invasive treatment. However, Luke has been travelling to Mexico once every 5 weeks and this is costing the family a huge amount of money.

Luke is a nephew of one of our Active Schools Edinburgh Coordinators, Robert Ure and this is now close to our hearts and we are all following the journey the family are on.

The Edinburgh Active Schools Coordinators completed 3 marathons in 3 hours which included Swimming, Rowing and Running on Wednesday 28th March at the Commonwealth Pool.  We raised £2655 for this amazing cause!!!  Thank you to everyone who supported us. There is still time to donate at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/edinburghactiveschools-helpluke
