The Bone-shaker Marrow-thon 2015 is a Charity motorcycle ride which raises money for blood cancer charities and is set to make a return in April.
More than 100 riders braved torrential rain for the inaugural Bone-shaker
Marrow-thon ride, which was held in March last year.
As well as attracting the attention of television news crews owing to the
organiser’s battle with leukaemia, the ride raised more than £2,000 which was
shared between Cure Leukaemia, Anthony Nolan and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Organiser Katherine Sinfield (pictured here with her husband Stephen) said: “We knew straight away that the BONE-shaker MARROW-thon would have to make a return in 2015. We’re holding the ride this year on Sunday, April 19, and it promises to be bigger and better – we have 150 bikes signed up already”.
“The format of the ride is almost identical to last year. We’ll set off from
the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham at 11am and make the 35-mile ride
back to Burton-on-Trent. Last year the ride finished at a football stadium, but
we wanted a more central town centre location for the ride to end this year.
And as Burton is the World’s beer-brewing capital, what better place is there
to finish than at the National Brewery Centre?”
The ride is open to all motorcycles, trikes, scooters, mopeds and vintage
machines. A second learner-friendly meeting point has also been arranged at the
Bassett’s Pole island near Sutton Coldfield.
Riders are asked to make a £5 donation to ride and a fund-raising raffle will
be drawn on the day. For more details visit www.boneshaker-marrowthon.com

Katherine is renowned for raising awareness and funds for blood cancer charities and she reached the final shortlist for a Pride of Britain Award in 2014 so lets give Katherine, and The Bone-Shaker Marrow-thon Event a huge boost because in my book she is a Back Street Hero 🙂
