Weʼre raising £100,000 to support the neurosurgical ward at Royal Stoke University Hospital. Mick Extance is returning to the Dakar in 2020 to make that happen.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In 2017 Mick was diagnosed with a brain tumour and subsequently underwent 14 hours of surgery. The drive to recover from this came from Mick’s love of riding bikes and so began the journey to Dakar 2020.
“You never know what life is going to throw at you,” said Mick, “but I feel as though I have been given a second chance and I intend to do something positive with it.”
By competing in the world’s toughest endurance race Mick is hoping that he can motivate other brain tumour sufferers to keep on fighting and also raise lots of money for the neurosurgical ward at Royal Stoke University Hospital. Mick could not be more grateful to all the staff there and would like to give something back.
You will be sharing a very important cause with Mick and hopefully helping inspire others to never give up.
