Follow the Seagulls is a long-distance charity trek that helps change the lives of people living with a brain tumour. Take on 50 miles of breath-taking coastline over 2 days in this series of iconic charity walks. Your challenge will raise vital funds to help people living with a brain tumour feel less afraid, less alone and more in control.
There are 80,000 people living with a brain tumour in the UK, too many of them are isolated, afraid and alone. We take on the Big Brain Tumour Trek so that people with a brain tumour and their loved ones get the support they need to live their best life possible.

“I rang brainstrust in the middle of the night, about 3am, when I was in a state. I was amazed that someone could care. I think she said, ‘but you needed me now’ and since then that is the only thing I have ever felt from this charity – love support, friendship and care.” – Sarah
Looking for a different kind of challenge?
There’s far more to supporting brainstrust than charity walks. If you’re more into pounding the pavements than trekking along coastlines, join team brainstrust and take on a charity run for the brain tumour community. Or perhaps you have a fundraiser of your own creation? We love it when our supporters come to us with their own fundraising projects, and we’ll be there to support you every step of the way.
