Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We have chosen to ride across the country in a day for PCUK.

The ride involves us starting from Morcambe and finishing in Bridlington which will be a distance of over 150 miles.

We work for Keyline and Prostate Cancer UK is our charity partner.

With Graham being a veteran of these events and having more ailments that can be listed. The medical miracle also finds the time to keep the yard at Kirkby in excellent order. 

We are looking to beat the 12 hour mark arriving in Bridlington in time for a few drinks!

Training has commenced and we will be attempting Kirkby to Skegness and back in a day also riding to and over the iconic Winnats Pass in Derbyshire.

About PCUK
New figures reveal that 11,819 men now die from prostate cancer every year in the UK, compared to 11,442 women dying from breast cancer. It means the male-only disease is now the third most common cancer to die from, after lung and bowel cancer.

Despite the alarming figures, the prospects for men with prostate cancer are actually better than ever, with men diagnosed today two-and-a-half times more likely to live for 10 years or more than if they were diagnosed in 1990. Yet due mainly to an increasing and ageing population, the number of men dying from the disease is growing.

We believe we need to fund around £120 million of research over the next eight years to reverse the trend and achieve our 10-year goal to halve the number of expected prostate cancer deaths by 2026
