Lolly's 350 mile virtual cycle from London to Edinburgh
Raising money for Spinal Research because spinal cord injury must become curable
We fund life changing research to change the future of spinal cord injury
Charity Registration No. 1151015
HERE’S THE REASON WHY....
Back 2004 while enjoying a night out with friends in a nightclub in London my life was to change forever.. After one act of a persons stupidity, I sustained a C4/5 spinal cord injury which left me paralysed from the shoulders down & confined to a wheelchair. I had to have emergency surgery and then I spent ten months in a rehab hospital. From the day I left the hospital I vowed to fight every single day to regain my independence and also WALK AGAIN👣
My life certainly didn’t turn out the way I expected it to.
As you can see spinal cord injury can happen to anyone at anytime.
I'm a proud member of the CURE GIRLS - we are a group of women from across the world LIVING with spinal cord injuries and we tirelessly campaign, raise awareness but most of all raise money which funds vital RESEARCH to CURE paralysis! We do NOT except what destiny has given us and our mission is to make chronic spinal cord injury curable!
THERE ARE 3 MILLON PEOPLE WORLDWIDE LIVING WITH A SPINAL CORD INJURY. IN THE UK ALONE SOMEONE IS TOLD EVERY 8 HOURS THAT THEY WILL NEVER WALK AGAIN.
I am planning to do my 5th virtual cycle for SPINAL RESEARCH charity and I’ll be cycling the equivalent distance from London to Edinburgh which is 350 miles, starting on Monday 12th February! It will be the longest cycle I've ever done. This means I will have cycled 1,450 miles for charity.
Spinal Research is the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. Every year 1,000 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord.
They receive no government funding and rely entirely on the support of the public to raise funds for their research. Because of the efforts of their supporters, they have funded innovative medical research that has achieved a number of ground breaking changes in the field.
I really couldn't do this without YOU!
Thank you so much for your support 🙏
