Staffers from Kim Leadbeater’s office to run tomorrow to raise funds for 5-year-old girl with cancer

Twelve staff members and volunteers from Kim Leadbeater's office will hit the streets tomorrow to raise money for a 6-year-old girl with a rare form of cancer to get treatment in America.

Staffers and volunteers from the office of Batley and Spen MP, Kim Leadbeater, are to run a collective 60km tomorrow to raise money for a 5-year-old girl with cancer.

At the age of 4 in December 2020, Beau was diagnosed with Stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer that at the point of diagnosis has only a 50% chance of long-term survivorship.

Beau’s family are fundraising so that she can access the Bivalent Vaccine trial in New York at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center once frontline treatment is completed that aims to keep cancer from returning.

Her family are appealing for help to raise £317,000 by May 2022, so she can receive a clinical trial in New York that aims to stop his neuroblastoma from coming back.

Irfan Mohmed, who works in Batley and Spen MP’s office said: “I’ll be running tomorrow Saturday, 29 January to help raise funds for Beau.

“There is twelve of us running altogether, 6 staff members and 6 volunteers. We will do 60km between us. The overall total for Beau’s campaign is £3137,000 but we are trying to raise whatever we can, if it is a few hundred quid, then it is a few hundred quid.”

The twelve staff members and volunteers will run from 10am to 4pm leaving from Asda Dewsbury.

To donate online, visit here or to donate by text, send “BEAU” followed by any whole amount up to £20 to 70450. This will cost your donation plus your standard network charge.
