Team JAWS was established to raise money in memory of Jake Whiteside who sadly passed away after a short battle with cancer in 2017 at the age of 16. The initial event that the team undertook was the Isle of Wight Challenge where over £25,000 was raised for Young Lives vs Cancer (formerly CLIC Sargent). Subsequent events have been undertaken and to date the team has raised more than £50,000.
Five years on from the original event we are once again taking on the Isle of Wight Challenge, a 65 mile continuous walk around the island.
In 2020 the team became an official Voluntary Fundraising Group for Young Lives vs Cancer and they continue to promote the fantastic work that the charity provides to children and young adults who are going through treatment for cancer.
