In 2011, I cycled across the Rift Valley in Kenya for Women V Cancer, to raise funds and along the way raise vital awareness of breast, ovarian and cervical cancers in memory of my lovely mum-in-law.
We raised a massive £10,150 for these three great charities and I trained hard and achieved my goal of cycling 250 miles in Kenya, including reaching GOLD by cycling 13 miles up a mountain and reaching the top!
It was the most amazing thing I had ever achieved personally whilst raising much needed funds for the charities.
In 2014, I did it again and took on another challenge; to cycle across Cuba and raised a total of £5,500 for the three charities.
I said I wouldn’t do it again, but these horrendous diseases just aren’t going away are they!?!
My lovely cousin and a friend are doing a sterling job of fighting breast cancer, so I need to do my bit to help and decided that I needed to get back on my bike and cycle again for these three fab charities – Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.
I will be cycling 250 miles over 5 days through Ragasthan in India, leaving on 3 November 2018.
As before, I will have my trusty cycling trainer and chief fund raiser by my side. He has promised this time not to give helpful guidance in how to change my gears and in turn, I have promised not to ‘explain politely’ that I know full well how to change them – let the fun begin!
Any donation is very much appreciated, so thank you very much for any help you can give.
