A short movie shot in slow motion featuring the agony of cyclists in all their sweaty, snotty glory. The film was shot as part of the 12th Fireflies Tour to Cannes, a British-based charity formed to raise awareness and funds for the research and treatment of leukaemia.
The Fireflies are committed to raising money for Leuka, a charity formed to support Research & Treatment of Leukaemia at Hammersmith Hospital, London, renowned as a world leader in treatment of Cancers of the Blood.
1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with some type of Cancer in our lifetime. It is believed that Leukaemia is the model of all Cancers and a greater understanding of this disease will help in the fight against all other forms of Cancer.
Inspired by the courage it takes to fight Cancer, the Fireflies annually tackle the most gruelling climbs of the Tour de France.
