Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page to find out more about the Big Cycle Challenge in India that I will be undertaking with 3 of my friends and a team of 40 other participants in March 2010 in aid of four special cancer charities.
This challenge is very close to my heart and my decision to do this came after I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in early 2009. In what was the most distressing part of my life, I was given support and hope from friends, strangers and charities like these, this is my way of paying something back to all the people that supported me.
Taking part in this challenge will raise funds for these charities which will enable more people to be supported through life threatening illness.
This is far from a holiday, in fact it will be a 5 day gruelling, bumpy and saddle-aching challenge, but we are doing this for all those affected by cancer and that, along with my supportive cycling buddies, will be what gets me through the cycle ride of a lifetime!
So please dig deep and donate now to help us support 4 life-changing charities: Marie Curie Cancer Care; Children with Leukaemia; Ovarian cancer action and The Lymphoma Association.
