Trauma Survivors Day Cyclethon 2017 a great success!

On Wednesday 17 May, over 100 trauma clinicians, supporters and trauma survivors hopped on static bikes in the foyer of the Royal London Hospital and rode for 12 hours to raise awareness of the plight of trauma survivors everywhere.

Undaunted by recent cyberattacks on the NHS, furious pedaling from Barts NHS Trust trauma clinicians, plus trauma survivors ,personal injury lawyers and more managed to raise £600 pounds in donations on the day plus £2000 so far on the Just Giving page.  All money raised will go to trauma research that helps improves treatments and survival rates for people who suffer a traumatic injury.

The Royal London major trauma centre cyclists were also joined by Level 1 trauma centres in Philadelphia (Thomas Jefferson University Hospital) and Nashville (Vanderbilt University Trauma Centre).  Nashville wasn't shy about identifying with it's musical heritage!

The Trauma Survivors Day cyclethon will continue to grow again in 2018, with the ambition of hosting cyclethons in the foyers of supportive London based corporations and other sponsors plus more partner major trauma centres in the USA and other countries.
