Thomas and MyCSP’s Fitness Fundraiser26 Aug. 2020
Thomas Chappell and his team at MyCSP have raised an incredible £750 for our life-changing work through a fitness challenge!
The April-May event was flexible, with some using their one form of exercise to run or cycle and those shielding using exercise bikes.
With our financial situation impacted by Covid19, Thomas pushed for us when his company decided that each team should raise money for a chosen charity.
MyCSP has a “community fund” which teams can apply for to donate to charity. Participants kept track of their progress on distance apps and sent pictures to their managers.
Thomas, whose father has been an MDS patient since 2012, credits MDS UK’s community and support of MDS UK as instrumental to seeing his Dad through the worst of his diagnosis.
It was a no-brainer that I suggested MDS UK for my team
Thomas said to us:
“It was a company-wide thing that we decided to do something for charity, and it was a no-brainer that I suggested MDS UK for my team.”
“The decision was unanimous as they were so moved by my Dad’s story, who is now in remission since receiving a stem cell transplant following his progression to leukaemia."
“The charity has been amazing. The research they are currently doing is great and the meetings are a great source of support for Dad."
“The first thing I did when I knew we were doing this was ask him about MDS UK as I know it’s been a tough time for charities. We are really happy that we’ve helped so much.”
MDS UK would like to say a huge thank you to Thomas and his team at MyCSP for their selfless efforts in helping us through these tough times!
We would also like to wish Thomas’ father continued improvement in his MDS journey!
