Chairmans Bike Ride for charity- Please donate..great cause!

Post  porrohman on Fri Jun 03, 2011 7:17 am

Eight years ago, I cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats for Cancer Research, and I vowed I’d never do another ride again!

However, two years ago my wife, Sallie, had Breast Cancer which was right out of the blue and had it not been for a routine medical, it may not have been detected in time. I am pleased to say she has been given the all clear. I continue to be amazed by any ladies’ ability to cope with the trauma and treatment.

One thing that became apparent to me was the fact that breast cancer now affects one in nine ladies and in my opinion much more research is needed to help eliminate this dreadful disease.

That is why she has ordered me on my bike again!

I am cycling from Donaueschingen (Black Forest, Germany) to Vienna with my good friend Geoff Prince and my son, Craig, starting on 16th June and finishing the 800+ miles in Vienna on 24th June. I hope to raise lots of money for this worthy cause and every pound raised will be going to Breast Cancer research at Cancer Research UK.

If you want to follow me on Twitter I will be updating the ride daily: www.twitter.com/swan_chris

Is TRUST making a donation?

If so, I will transfer my personal donation to TRUST account and then pass it on.

"We're zigzagging the Danube climbing to great heights still raining, aching but enjoying it."
