Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

A team of six DHU Health Care staff will be pushing the pedals in a gruelling 24-hour relay challenge for MIND and the British Heart Foundation.

The challenge is simple; how many laps can we do in 24hrs – and can we beat the other teams?

On Feb 9th and 10th 2019 six cyclists from DHU Health Care will be taking part in a gruelling 24-hour team cycling relay at Derby Velodrome as part of the Cyclone24 event.

The physically and mentally demanding challenge will see the riders facing the daunting task of staying awake, battling exhaustion and pushing themselves to the limit in order to make it to the end. It is a challenge of strength, determination and team spirit.

The six team members who will be pushing the pedals in a 24-hour relay are:

  • Robert Corke – Driver
  • Peter Miles– Driver Trainer Derbyshire Urgent Care
  • Heidi Stevens– Transport manager LLR Urgent Care
  • Simon Harris – MD LLR Urgent Care
  • Lisa Wallis – HRD DHU
  • Rob Haines – Ops LLR Urgent Care

For many it will be the first time they have used the velodrome in Derby (or anywhere for that matter) so not only will they have to learn the legendary track, but they will also have to battle exhaustion to complete the 24-hour challenge.

All funds raised for the DHU Health Care team will go toward supporting two charities that are close to our hearts. Our two charities, the British Heart Foundation and MIND, are both charities that deal with issues which have directly affected people close to the team and we aim to do our best to raise as much as we can for the causes.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
