Upminster 10k walk raises £2,600 for Brain Tumour charity
PUBLISHED: 16:00 17 October 2018
The walk was in aid of an Upminster mum who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2012.
More than 100 people took part in a 10k walk in Upminster to raise money for a local mum with a brain tumour.
Walkers set off from the Golden Crane pub in Avon Road on Sunday (October 7) in aid of the Judy D’Cruz fund - and in total raised £2,678.
Judy, from Upminster, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2012, and since then her and her husband, Win D’Cruz, have been raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity.
So far they have raised more than £30,000 after organising a number of sponsored walks, and taking part in The Great North Run and the London Marathon.
Those taking part in the walk could either complete one 5k lap of the course, or two laps - amounting to 10k.
Judy’s husband, and organiser, Win said: “It was a fantastic day and I am thankful for everyone who took part.
“The money will go towards treating children with brain tumours, and hopefully it will help make a difference.
“It is great to break the 30k mark, and we are going to keep organising and taking part in events like this to raise as much as possible.
“When we first started we could never have imagined raising this much money.”
