Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I took this opportunity, not only to challenge myself physically and mentally, but to raise some money for CRUK to help them develop newer, kinder treatments, and get closer to cures. I think it's increasingly important to take the chaotic destruction that is cancer and turn it into something good.

More than 1 in 3 people will develop cancer at some point in their lives and with our ageing population, this statistic is getting worse. Many of my family and friends have been affected in my lifetime, so I decided it was about time I stopped watching it happen and did something positive to help.

I'm taking this challenge seriously, 100 miles is a long way to cycle for a vets-eligible front row forward like myself! That said, I've lost a bit of weight in order to get fit for August 4th, and I intend to get as much pedalling practice as part of my daily commute as I can. My wife even bought me a new set of weighing scales and a personal trainer for my birthday!

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 and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

I've signed up and paid the registration fee myself, but @CR_UK require all their "athletes" to meet a certain fundraising target.

So please dig deep and donate any amount, no matter how small or large. It will all help.
