The last week in March is Ichthyosis Awareness Week.
Over the last 2 years lots of you have joined us for our Ichthycyclotron, generously giving your time and effort to help raise the magnificent sum of £15,000 for funding research into ichthyosis. From a school girl cycling on an exercise bike in a local gym, to a mum towing her youngsters in a bike trailer, to a grandparent cycling with their grandchildren, so many of you joined in to make it a real success….
Next year, we’re BACK! And we’d like to go BIGGER and BETTER!
We’re asking you once again to get on your bikes and cycle your hearts out to help us raise awareness and funding for ichthyosis. Please give us your support by cycling 1.8k (we’re 18 years old this year), and encourage your friends and relatives to sponsor you or join in! Perhaps you can cycle even further for us? If you can then we’ll be very impressed, but every single mile counts. Let’s generate some awareness and get everyone talking about ichthyosis!
The easiest way to get started is to sign up online with Virgin Money Giving. Start by visiting the Virgin Money Giving website click the ‘Start Fundraising’ button to register for the event at £10 per adult and £5 per child (to help cover costs). From there you will be guided to set up a fundraising page. Alternatively, email Maggie@ichthyosis.org.uk or write to us at our registered office: 562 Wokingham Road, Earley, Reading RG6 7JB to obtain a registration form.
Sign up before the end of February 2016 and we’ll send you your very own Ichthycyclotron t-shirt!
Every £25 we raise funds an hour of research to bring us closer to finding better treatments for ichthyosis, so join in and show us what you can do!
We’d love to see your photos and hear your cycling stories, so don’t forget to tweet us at @ISG_Charity or get in contact via Facebook.
