Ripple, the leader in enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, is proud to announce a new two-year partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH Charity), which will see funds donated by Ripple to help support cancer care at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Through the partnership, GOSH Charity will become Ripple’s primary nonprofit partner in the UK.
The partnership will launch to coincide with the 2023 TCS London Marathon, for which GOSH Charity is the official Charity of the Year. Together, GOSH Charity and Ripple will cheer on around 1,000 TeamGOSH runners raising millions to help beat childhood cancer.
The 2023 TCS London Marathon will take place on Sunday 23 April 2023. Ripple will sponsor GOSH Charity’s rest and recovery room at their post-race reception, where TeamGOSH runners will have space to relax and recover after taking on the 26.2 miles to raise funds for GOSH Charity.
“We're thrilled to announce our new partnership with GOSH Charity, who raise funds for GOSH, one of the world’s leading children's hospitals. We can’t wait to support the vital work they do. At Ripple, we believe in the power of blockchain technology to create positive change, and this partnership is a great example of how we can use our resources to make a real difference to children at GOSH and their families,” said Sendi Young, Managing Director, Europe at Ripple.
Ripple partners with innovative fintechs, universities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), foundations, and local charities where it has offices to make progress towards a more open and meaningfully connected world.
“We are delighted to establish this new partnership with Ripple. The money raised will support cancer care at GOSH, helping children with rare and difficult-to-treat cancers. With some transformational projects on the horizon, the partnership will have a huge impact on the lives of seriously ill children in the UK and beyond," added Sarah Bissell, Deputy Director of Relationship Fundraising, GOSH Charity.
Every day hundreds of children from across the UK arrive at GOSH for specialist care. GOSH sees the rarest and most difficult-to-treat childhood cancers and treats more children with cancer than any other hospital in the UK.
