The Richard Burns Foundation was created following the death of Richard Burns, the 2001 world rally champion, from brain cancer in November 2005.

Richard’s strength and determination throughout his illness were an inspiration to those that knew him and worked with him. He faced his disease with the same attitude that he displayed on the world’s rally stages: showing bravery, intelligence and single-mindedness. These were all the qualities that helped make him England’s only world rally champion.

After Richard’s death, aged just 34, the Richard Burns Foundation was set up by some his closest friends and colleagues as a lasting tribute to his memory. It aims to help people with brain cancer all over the world.

Marcus Grönholm, a two-time world rally champion and former team mate of Richard’s, is the newly-appointed patron of the Foundation, with David Lapworth – Richard’s former team boss - and Zoe Scott, Richard’s long-term girlfriend, among the trustees. Richard’s co-driver Robert Reid was a co-founder of the charity and also remains heavily involved in its day-to-day running.

The Richard Burns Foundation is holding a number of fund-raising events both at home and abroad this year, which we ask everyone to support. Thanks to your help and generosity, the Foundation aims to change a number of disrupted lives for the better.
