Joe, who is now the owner of the Guinness World Record for the largest High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session, announced the good news that his recent event raised £8,000 to support our work.

He smashed the world record alongside 3,804 people who took part at British Summertime Hyde Park last Wednesday. Those attending paid £5 to be part of the event with proceeds from every ticket sale going to Teenage Cancer Trust.

Joe met with the young people on the unit who are currently going through treatment. He said: "It was wonderful to come to the Teenage Cancer Trust unit today and meet some of the young people who the charity have supported and hear their stories - their resilience and optimism is amazing. I am proud to be playing a small part in the lives of young people battling cancer."

When you see money being raised and the impact it has, it inspires you to keep helping, which I intend to do. I am looking forward to supporting the charity and can’t wait to get more involved

Money raised will help support our work. Currently we only reach half of the young people who need us, so we are rolling out our Nursing and Support Service which will see specialist Teenage Cancer Trust nurses taking expert care out beyond our units, to wherever young people with cancer are being treated, whether that’s in their local hospitals, at home or elsewhere.

We believe all young people with cancer should have access to the specialist care they need, but right now we can only reach half of the people who need it.
