62 mile Grand Union Bike Ride

On Friday 22nd November, Crescent Buildbase will take on their toughest challenge. Starting at 7am from the Uxbridge branch, the team will ride to Aylesbury and back again in one day. The total journey is
approximately 62 miles and is anticipated to take 7 hours. Please support the team in any way you can by using the donate button on this page.

Why are we doing this? This year Buildbase, Electricbase and Hirebase employees are taking on their toughest fundraising challenge yet and are aiming to raise £125,000 for CRUK’s life saving work. Funds raised will be
used to help fund a clinical trial that is finding the right treatment combination for men with prostate cancer. Results from 2017 for this trial showed combining the drug abiraterone with other hormone therapies at the
start of treatment improves survival by 37%
“These are the most powerful results I’ve seen from a prostate cancer trial – it’s a ‘one in a career’ feeling. This is one of the biggest reductions in death I’ve seen in any clinical trial for adult cancers” Professor Nick James.
£125,000 will support all of the running costs for this trial for a period of 9 months.

Stampede trial for Prostate Cancer research

Since 2005, we’ve been funding a clinical trial called STAMPEDE to find the best treatment for men with newly diagnosed, advanced prostate cancer. The trial is actually many different trials in one, looking at new combinations of treatments to identify which are most effective at beating this disease. STAMPEDE has now recruited more than 11,000 patients and results from the trial have already led to a change in how men are treated. This demonstrates the power of trials in getting promising treatments to the clinic as quickly as possible.
