Story

I am delighted to be joining former England, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Nottingham Forest footballer, leukaemia survivor and Patron of blood cancer charity Cure Leukaemia Geoff Thomas, to cycle the full Tour de France route one day ahead of the professionals in 2020.The event, GT15, will take place from Friday June 26th Saturday July 18th next year and along with 19 other riders we will take in all 21 gruelling stages and 3,470km of the recently announced Le Tour 2020 route one day ahead of the pro Peloton including the likes of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.As a team we are committed to raising £1,000,000 for the charity that helped to save Geoff's life. All funds raised from this event will be invested directly into the national Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) network which Cure Leukaemia will begin funding from January 2020. This critical funding will allow them to open and run clinical trials for pioneering treatments for the disease. Patients from an increased catchment area of over 20 million people will then have access to potentially life-saving treatments. Please give generously to the cause and help me to raise my own personal target of £30,000 . Many thanks in anticipation Richard.
