Story

After months and months of training and fundraising, The Tour 21 class of 2023 have COMPLETED all 21 stages of the Tour de France route, just one week ahead of the professionals AND RAISED OVER £1 MILLION!

The team, made up of 18 amateur cyclists from across the world, have worked as a team to make their way across Spain and France across three and a half weeks.

The team set off from Bilbao on Saturday 24th June 2023 and followed the same 21-stage route as the pros, riding over 3,500km in just 21 days - all to raise over £1,000,000 for Cure Leukaemia, the official charity partner of the Tour de France in the UK.

Fundraising from the challenge is directly invested in the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) which helps those fighting the cancer across the globe, including three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond, who last year announced he is battling Chronic Myelogenous Leukaemia.

On behalf of our Doctors, Nurses and most importantly our brave patients, thank you for your generous support!

Why Donate?

Your generosity means we can help the prospects of blood cancer patients by funding more nurses and running more clinical trials through the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) network of 15 centres across the UK.
