BTL raises money for The British Skin Foundation at Wacky Races

A team of four representatives from the UK division of BTL Aesthetics has completed a 1,500 mile drive in support of The British Skin Foundation driving from their head office in Stoke-on-Trent, through Lille, France and ending, after four days in Rimini, Italy.

Sixty percent of British people currently suffer from or have suffered with a skin disease at some point during their lifetime. Some skin conditions are manageable; others are severe enough to kill.

BTL Aesthetics, the award-winning manufacturer and supplier of medical equipment for physical therapy, cardiology, and medical aesthetics industries has today set off on their fundraising endeavours for the British Skin Foundation in a bid to find a cure.

Lee Boulderstone, Managing Director for BTL Aesthetics commented: “We strongly believe that BTL Aesthetics and others within our industry have a fundamental responsibility to do the right thing: to help raise money and to ultimately, one day find a cure.

“The challenge was a lot more difficult that you anticipated but, with support from a great team, we reached the finish line and have now presented the British Skin Foundation with £1.5K”.

Lisa Bickerstaffe, Communications Officer for the British Skin Foundation commented on the fundraising initiative: "What a fantastic amount of money raised with this unusual challenge! We're really grateful to the BTL Aesthetics team and we'll ensure the money is put to good use funding skin disease research."
