Story

Running, hiking, skydiving…. What’s next I get asked! Well two wheels is not something I am that comfortable on and last summer I ventured on a bike for the first time in many a year, probably since my 1970’s chopper! So if I’m not great on a bike, nervous on roads and no
real experience… yes you have guessed it, let’s do a cycling challenge!

On Wednesday 27th September 2017 I will be cycling 300+ miles over 4 days from London to Paris. I am mad or need certifying I agree, but like my previous challenges, skydiving 15,000 ft with acute vertigo, hiking Kilimanjaro, with immense fear of camping and still with vertigo, running marathons etc everything I do is to push myself to my limits and raise as much as we can for Cancer Research UK.

We all have our personal reasons for supporting this charity and sadly I have lost dear family and friends to this disease but also have many who are fighting their battles and winning. In March my dad was diagnosed with prostrate cancer. His oncologist told him that if this was 10 years ago his prognosis would have been very different to the positive one now, all down to the research and advancement in treatment. My dad has supported my fund raising through our business and now he could see first hand what it meant. Please support us so that CRUK can continue to research cures and treatments so more of our loved ones hear a positive prognosis to the word cancer.

To date we have raised a WHOPPING £74,300 and I would love to raise £10,000 but my ultimate wish is to reach £100,000 with this challenge! Helping me with my training and taking on the challenge with me, is my husband Simon and I wish him all the luck coping with me on a bike! Plus I will ensure I have plenty of additional padding!!!

So please, spare what you can, every penny counts and together, we  CAN and SHALL make a difference! 

Thank-you,

Rachel
