A COSMIC Thank You to Otto’s Wine Bar!

The whole COSMIC Team would like to say a huge thank you to Otto’s Wine Bar for raising a fantastic £4,000 for our Kawasaki Disease Research Collaboration. The team cycled from London to Paris, starting from Trafalgar Square and ending at the Eiffel Tower 3 days later!

The funds raised by the cycle team will go a long way in helping support our Kawasaki Disease Research Collaboration with the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. The Research Project’s aim is to look into the cause of Kawasaki Disease –  a vascular illness that affects, mainly children aged 5 and under, as well as developing a test to get a diagnosis earlier and developing new treatments.

We also have to say thank you to the amazing Joanne McBride and her daughter Freya, who was admitted to St Mary’s Children’s Intensive Care Unit in 2015 and diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease. It is because of them that Otto’s heard about COSMIC and our work dedicated to Kawasaki Disease research.

If you have any fundraising ideas or challenges that you would like to do for COSMIC, and more specifically our Kawasaki Disease Research, please get in touch with our team by calling 02033126175 or emailing info@cosmiccharity.org.uk.
