FacingUp2KC Sponsorship Page


Thanks to all our very generous current sponsors. If any other company or individual would like to join and support with some of the event’s costs and / or donate to the research fund please kindly email sarah@facingup2kidneycancer.org to discuss this further. We are still seeking help with sourcing a Tom Tom Rider or equivalent, a Go Pro Hero Black or equivalent and a Cardo Scala Rider Q1 team.

Thank you very much.

What we will have to offer in return for this help and sponsorship is sticker space on Jon’s motorbike – Thunderbird 1. We are happy to add to the existing sponsors during Jon’s ride. 

We will also regularly mention and thank our sponsors on our Twitter account @facingup2KC and our Facebook page  and from this website we will link back to the sponsor’s websites. It’s a WIN WIN situation for everyone as the sponsors will gain marketing opportunities from their links with us, and this arrangement ensures that the public donations go exactly where they are needed and we wanted to fund research into earlier diagnosis and a potential cure. 

We’d like to thank:
