To celebrate the legacy and inspiring story of the late Stephen Sutton, the Teenage Cancer Trust decided to tick an item off Stephen’s bucket list on his behalf, with a record attempt for the Most tandem parachute jumps in 24 hours. Stephen himself had managed to raise over £5 million for young cancer patients – earning himself an MBE. The aim of this attempt was to continue his work, raising funds to support young people in the UK living with cancer.
Stephen has helped Teenage Cancer Trust move our work for young people with cancer forwards and, even after his death, his positivity and inspiration continues. Not only did we achieve a Guinness World Records title today, but we raised money that will help support teenagers and young adults across the UK facing a diagnosis of cancer.
