Founded by his sister Kimberlei (pictured above with Josh), Josh Brown, the inspiration for our Fighting for a Cure Fundraising Group, is being remembered throughout November and especially on the 15th.he that would be his 34thhe birthday.
Kimberly said: “Josh was in the gym almost every day, even throughout his treatment. It brought him happiness and helped his mental health. I will always remember Josh leaning in and increasing my bike settings, making me work harder!”
Josh, 25, was diagnosed with pilocytic astrocytoma after experiencing nausea at the gym and excruciating headaches after gym sessions, leading to balance and coordination problems.
Despite surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, nothing could save Josh and he died in 2019 at the age of 29.
#Gainz4Brainz asks people to sign up to do 30 reps or 30 minutes of any exercise of their choice for 30 days; whether it’s lifting weights, walking for 30 minutes or doing yoga, 30 star bounces, push-ups or squats.
To sign up for #Gainsz4Brainz go to Gainz for Brainz – Brain Tumor Research. The £13.50 registration fee for Brain Tumor Research will entitle the registrant to receive a charity t-shirt and wristband that can be worn in social media posts. Fight for a Cure hopes participants will set up a sponsorship page to help them collectively reach a target of £2,740; this is enough to sponsor another day of research.
