It is currently funding research into meningitis, Down syndrome, epilepsy and premature birth, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.

“We already know our events are unmissable but now we’re offering some unmissable savings too in our Blue and Pink Sale,” says Louise Stone, Senior Events Manager at Action Medical Research.

“Whether you’re into cycling, climbing, trekking or running, we’ve got something for everyone so race ahead and book your place before midnight on Friday, 2 December, to make the most of our offer.

“You’re guaranteed a great sporting event and you’ll be helping to save and change the lives of sick babies and children.”
