Thinking of Oscar

Tuesday 12 February 2019

Charity Thinking of Oscar is asking people to take part in a 500-cycle ride over five days for its #TOO500 campaign, visiting each children’s hospital it will support.

The funds raised will go towards innovative projects to improve healthcare technology.

The fundraising campaign will kick off at Oxford Children’s Hospital on June 12 with cyclists travelling to and Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Sheffield Children’s Hospital, and Great Ormond Street Hospital along the way.

Each day they will cycle about 100 miles, with cyclists being able to take part in individual days or the whole challenge.

Thinking of Oscar was set up by Hannah and David Cole in memory of their son Oscar who died suddenly and unexpectedly in Oxford on June 19, 2014. They founded Thinking of Oscar to enhance the experience of children and their families in hospital by investing in projects to improve quality of care.
