Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Having only recently started cycling I am now facing the HUGE challenge of cycling from Media City to Wembley Stadium which is over 300 miles off-road cycling including over 15000ft of climbing!

I have armed myself with Ibuprofen, paracetamol and an amount of butt cream that should hopefully see me through! I will have the pleasure of riding with other ex-professional rugby league players and the positive attitude, drive and determination to raise money for the great work that RL Cares does should be enough to see us through!

Physical and mental strength is something that you are taught as a sports professional while you are playing. You can tackle the biggest and toughest of opponents on a field but sometimes life is little more complicated. RL Cares helps support people involved at every level of our great sport, from junior clubs to current and former players and provides support in ways that they need it whether that is practical advice, legal, medical or counselling support. I enjoyed a great time while playing rugby and have been fortunate enough to have a great career after hanging up my boots and now I feel it is time to give back something to the sport that has made me the person I am today. 

I have seen first-hand in my own family the importance of valuing mental health on the same level as physical health which is why I’m such an avid supporter of RL Cares which focuses on the physical and mental health and wellbeing of players past and present. 

Please help me smash my fundraising goal of £1,500.00 to help raise much needed funds and awareness of this great charity. Your donations will keep me going through this immense physical challenge knowing I am doing something positive as a result of all the pain!!
