This is the first time I collect funds here and it took me a long time to find the best cause. In the end, I should choose something that is close to my heart. When I just entered my adult life I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer. This event shaped whole my life and now being a father of my own 1-year-old son, I don't want him to get through the same. Pancreatic cancer is a very tricky condition, that often is discovered far too late. It defends anyone, even most powerful and famous people (Steve Jobs, Patrick Swayze and Pavarotti). The best thing we can do is to help scientists find tools to defeat it.
I will be cycling for 3 days from Wimbledon to Southampton, via Isle of Wight to Brighton and back. That is my personal challenge as 4 years ago I did 200 miles in 2 days few days before my own wedding (https://www.endomondo.com/users/4516509/workouts/229222686). Now I want to beat that, feel the fresh air of national parks, enjoy (and share with you) views and spend time recollecting best moments I had with my dad.
It's more as a gesture. If you can help me to collect even the smallest amount for that amazing charity.
