About

This March, a group of friends will run in the Wicklow 10k to raise money for VHL UK/Ireland. VHL UK/Ireland aims to raise funds via fundraising and donations for research, provide information and support for those affected and raise awareness.
VHL or von Hippel-Lindau is a genetic form of cancer. VHL patients battle a series of tumors throughout their lives. The VHL gene is involved in many other forms of cancer. Finding a cure for VHL will play a vital role in curing cancer!
8 years ago our close friend Alison was diagnosed with VHL. Since then she has had multiple surgeries to remove brain and kidney tumours. However, this disease is truly heart breaking as she knows that no matter how many times she gets the ‘’all clear’’ she'll be right back in that hospital bed getting ready for another surgery.

Fundraising as part of a team, view team page.
