Event Overview

Introduction:

The Memorial Ride is a now a well-recognised fixture in the Glinton and surrounding area calendar. The ride is to pay respect to Liam Pridmore and raise money for charity in his name.

Aged 11, Liam became ill in May 2011, he started being sick and having headaches which were assumed to be a bug he had picked up from his Dad who was also ill that week. By the following week he couldn’t open his left eye and Liam was unable to tolerate bright lights and noise. He went to the local GP who referred him straight away to Peterborough City Hospital and they sent him for a CT scan the same day where a brain tumour was found. That night Liam was transferred to Addenbrookes hospital with his Mum so they could arrange an MRI scan and make a decision on what to do next. Liam had an operation to remove as much of the tumour as possible. The family then received the devastating news that it was an aggressive tumour called Glioblastoma, grade 4, and Liam’s life expectancy was 12 to 18 months.  The treatment Liam received was chemotherapy and radiotherapy to give him some quality of life.

Liam lost his fight 11 months later on the 6th April 2012 after spending his final weeks at home with his family looking after him.

For this years’ Memorial Ride his family would like to raise funds for the following charities:

The Brain Tumour Charity

Team Jess

The Rudolf Fund
