Wayne Clark from Darlington is our fundraiser of the month, inspired by his son Reuben who was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma in 2016 at the age of 16 months. Sadly Reuben lost his life in August 2017 aged just 2 years old.
Wayne has set up Race 4 Reuben, a kart team competing in 24 hour Kart Endurance Races to fundraise for NECCR. As a team of 4, each driver will have to drive the kart flat out for 6 hours, doing 4 x 1.5 hour stints.
Wayne said “It’s not easy, but the courage and determination Reuben showed throughout his treatment will always be our inspiration.
2019 is our third year, and we are again competing in two 24 hour Endurance races. Our aim this year is to take our fundraising total to £10,000 and to achieve a podium finish for Reuben along the way will be a great achievement.”
At the time of writing, he was just £144.50 off his fundraising target of £10,000!
Well done Wayne and your team, you’re helping raise money for vital research so less children will be taken too soon because of cancer.
