Story

This is a fundraiser on behalf of a Cactus employee's family, whose child has a rare form of kidney cancer (Wilms). She is receiving her care from Birmingham Children's Hospital, who they have said have been fantastic and instrumental in the treatment of their daughter. As an organisation we wanted to support BCH in their fantastic facilities, treatment and care of children in the Midlands area. We are participating in a company wide 'murderous mileage week' where we are all either running or cycling as many miles as we can in a week to raise money for the Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Our team of intrepid exercisers who have pledged to cycle and run 509 miles (equivalent to Truro to Edinburgh) across the week are:

Runners:

Guy – running to and from work every day that week which adds up to a colossal 64 miles – that’s close to 2.5 marathons and he is scared!

Jo – again running to and from work, earning her a whopping 45 miles in her trainers!

Matt – to and from work which adds up to 30 miles of sweat and blisters

Cyclers:

Matt – has pledged another 20 miles on the bike in addition to his epic 30 running miles

Francesca – opted for a cool 50 miles on the bike

Joe – 10 miles a day on the bike giving him 50 miles for the week

Leigh – joining Joe cycling in tandem (not actually on a tandem!) for his 50 miles

Lauren – another 50 epic miles

Ali – has promised to bring in his own pillow to soften the saddle for his amazing 50 miles

Emma – joining the Cycling team for another gruelling 50 miles

Becky – (whose Daughter we are raising money for) has pledges to knock another 50 miles out

Nicki – as she is heavily pregnant, she will be filming as much as possible!
