The annual Emma-Jayne Memorial Fund bikeathon and fun walk event is hosting a new element this year, a 10K country run.
This popular event will this year take place on Sunday, July 20 at The Royal Oak Inn, better known as The Splash Inn, Little Cawthorpe near Louth.
Whether you want to run, walk or cycle, there is a sporting genre for the serious competitors to take part in or just a chilled out approach for the more keen enthusiast who wants to have fun.
Either way, it’s all raising funds for an outstanding cause.
The bikethon offers a 12 and 30 mile cycle ride around the wolds, the 10K country run, which can also be done as power walk, and there’s the 3.5-mile fun walk.
The memorial fund was set-up 15 years ago by recent British Empire Medal recipients Tony and Ruth Knowles, whose daughter Emma-Jayne died of a brain tumour just before her 23rd birthday and was cared for by the team at Hull Royal Infirmary.
The memorial event is the Knowles’ way of thanking the hospital for the support they gave their daughter. It is also their way of keeping their daughter’s memory alive.
Sponsor forms for this year’s event are now able to download via the official memorial fund website: www.emma-jaynememorialfund.co.uk
Or you can call Tony and Ruth for a form on 01507 441347.
Plus if your in Louth you can pick up a sponsor form from the Louth Leader office at 44 Eastgate.
All funds raised will go to the Neurosurgical Unit, Ward 40 at Hull Royal Infirmary, where Emma-Jayne was treated.
