Raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust, Mind and PROSTATE CANCER UK

Story

Hello. My name is Mark and I am 56, and a passionate Luton Town supporter, cyclist and fund raiser for causes that inspire and motivate me. I am completing a demanding cycle challenge between 5th April to 8th May 2023, cycling 2,500 miles in 34 days to 116 Premier league, EFL and national league football grounds. Details of my challenge can be found on my website

www.markfootballcyclechallenge.co.uk

I am completing this challenge to raise awareness and donations for 3 deserving cancer and mental health charities which I am passionate to support and I am hoping to raise £15,000 (£5,000 for each charity). The charities are detailed below:

TEENAGE CANCER TRUST - Every day 7 young persons between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust has a specialist unit in most NHS cancer treatment hospitals. The donations received help to fund and support expert nurses and youth support coordinators to ensure the best care is offered to any young person facing cancer.

PROSTATE CANCER is the most common cancer in men, 47,500 men are diagnosed each year and one man dies every 45 minutes from this terrible disease. Your support and generosity is a big help to fund research and develop better treatment and further raise awareness of PROSTATE CANCER UK.

MIND for mental health. 1 in 4 people face mental health problems. Mind provide support nationally and locally within the communities to people experiencing difficulties through a network of 125 support centres and the help lines that receive 118,000 calls each year and your donations help to ensure that support is available to anyone who needs help. No one should face mental health problems alone.

Thank you for your support it is really appreciated and means a lot to me.
