Brain Tumour Research & Support across Yorkshire

Want to know more?

The BTRS vision is clear and simple – they want to cure a devastating disease that affects so many people.  Whilst we are waiting for the cure, they will provide the best patient and family support network we can.

Around 9,000 new cases of primary brain tumours are diagnosed in the UK each year. Across Yorkshire and the Humber we estimate there are 1,000 patients diagnosed each year, around 50 of these will be children.

BTRS Objectives

  • To raise funds to support specific and dedicated research projects into the treatment and cure of child and adult brain tumours, and to ensure that all research is written up for publication and communicated with other charities and research organisations.
  • To provide grants or financial assistance to brain tumour patients and their carers.
  • To provide equipment and apparatus to hospital wards, patients or research centres.

RIDe25 and BTRS

BTRS is focused on the Yorkshire Mafia Paris to Geneva challenge ride in September 2016 – and is offering a limited number of fully funded charity places if you are willing to commit to a fund raising target of £2300.

BTRS will also consider fully funded rider places for cyclists who wish to complete other Ride25 legs as a challenge event and raise money for BTRS.  Please fill out the form on the left to get more info about this and let us know which Ride25 leg you want to ride.

The Yorkshire Mafia Paris to Geneva

Charity Bike Ride

Now in its THIRD year, the Yorkshire Mafia Charity Bike ride is a great opportunity to get fit, challenge yourself, network with local like-minded Yorkshire business folk and most importantly raise significant funds for several charities.

We are riding for the following causes; Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Simon on the Streets, St Gemma’s Hospice – Leeds, Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT), Brain Tumour Research & Support Yorkshire (BTRS), Heart Research UK and The Candlelighters.  You can also ride for a charity close to your heart, however they may not be able to offer funded places.
