Glow Gold September

Every September a Scottish Mum who has lost her child to cancer, is propping small, glistening golden bikes in public places to raise awareness of childhood cancers.

Milene Munro, a CALICO committee member has devoted herself to raising awareness of how cancer can affect children since the death of her seven-year-old son, Braeden Williams to a brain tumour in 2014.

Milene is supported by the team at Tec Spray who professionally spray the bikes and scooters  free of charge. The donated bikes and scooters are then chained up at prominent spots and landmarks around Aberdeen and Stonehaven.

Each of the bikes and scooters shows the name of a child from the north-east who has lost their battle with cancer. The bikes signify all the childhood dreams of those lost children.

 

About 400 children develop brain tumours each year in the UK with boys more likely to suffer one than girls.

SUPPORTING THE FIGHTERS, ADMIRING THE SURVIVORS,

HONOURING THE TAKEN AND NEVER GIVING UP HOPE
