Upcoming Fundraising Events

The Drew Barker-Wright Charity organises regular events and social occasions to help raise funds for Paediatric Chordoma research and to help children and families affected by this rare disease. We also support those who wish to raise money independently by taking part in individual National events in Drew’s memory.

If you are interested in joining #TeamDrew for any of our running events, attending one of our social evenings, or you would like to raise money independently, please get in touch. Your support is always greatly appreciated.



Next year Drew’s Daddy will be taking on the London Marathon. Jon is aiming to raise £10,000 for #dbwcharity to help us continue in our efforts to fund Paediatric Chordoma research and to support UK families affected by this ultra-rare childhood cancer. Over the coming months we have a series of local events planned to boost Jon’s fundraising campaign. If you would like to support Jon in his efforts and help #dbwcharity make a difference, his fundraising page is now open for donations. Thank you xx

Cardiff Half Marathon is Wales’ largest mass participation event, and the second largest half-marathon in the UK.

Cheered on by huge crowds, you pass iconic Cardiff landmarks such as the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Bay and Penarth Marina, before a grandstand finish in the centre of the city. On a flat and fast course, it’s a fantastic event for both first time runners and those looking to set a personal best.

On the 7th – 11th October 2021, Melanie Colivet will be taking on the Saharan Challenge for The Drew Barker-Wright Charity.
