In March 2015, aged 11, Pippa Rea lost her beautiful life to the most cruel form of paediatric brain cancer (DIPG).
We donated the tumour for research to the Tissue Bank at the Royal Children's Hospital.

Pippa was naturally athletic, loved the beach, and all sports. She was a very fast runner!

Thus, her big brothers, James and Patrick (who also love sport), have decided that whenever they participate in an event they will do it in memory of their little sister and use the opportunity to raise funds for our research.

All funds raised will go directly to our tumour donation (Pippa's Trust) at the RCH tissue bank for research into DIPG and Brain Cancer.

Their first event is the "Tower Hill Challenge". A gruelling obstacle course of mud pits, walls, rope nets and more set in the rough terrain of the dormant volcano, Tower Hill. James will complete the 15km course, Patrick the 6km course and they are inviting friends and anyone else to join them.

Please support Pippa's brothers and their friends and donate to our vitally important research.

Brain cancer is the number one killer of children. DIPG (the tumour that killed Pippa) has no cure and the survival rate is 0%.

Thank you,
Pippa's mum, Virginia and her big brothers, James and Patrick.
