  3. Doctors complete canoe challenge

    An anaesthetist has paddled 115 miles (185km) in a canoe from Birmingham to Manchester in memory of a friend who died from a brain tumour.

    Dr Tim Molitor, 31, from Solihull, along with 35-year-old GP Dr Danny Magona, from Northwich in Cheshire, completed the gruelling five-day trip yesterday to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

    They were remembering their friend Aria Nikjooy who lost his life to a medulloblastoma in February 2021.

    The pair set off on 18 July, from Birmingham Medical School, where the trio met, to Manchester, where Aria lived with his wife Naomi and their toddler, Eliyas.

    Dr Molitor, who works at University Hospital Coventry, but is about to start a six-month secondment at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, said: "It feels amazing to have completed the challenge.

    "The last five days have been physically and mentally exhausting.

    "The canoe has taken a bit of a beating, through the 102 locks we’ve had to navigate."
