My husband supports several charities and a few times a year he takes part in cycling events and helps raises money for his chosen charity. Things closer to home have resulted in him taking on an extra charity to support this year.
One of my husband's co-workers has recently been diagnosed with Cancer. My husband and a few of his workmates have decided to take part in a 45 mile organised Bike Ride Event to try and raise funds for Cancer Research on their colleague's behalf.
The five man team are taking part in the Moors and Shores Adventure X Mini Massif on June 15th this year in Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire and have been raising sponsorship for the last few weeks. So far they have raised almost £800 from friends, family and by approaching local businesses.
None of the guys have an online presence but they have set up a donation page for sponsorship and are giving out the web address to everyone they meet. I said I would make a post about it to try and help them get closer to their £1000 target. If anyone sees this and finds they have a few coins spare, please consider donating to their event, it would mean so much to them (and me). Their justgiving donation page can be found at - http://www.justgiving.com/tms-mtb2014
Every little counts and the money goes directly to Cancer Research.
I know money is tight everywhere though so please don't feel obliged, I just wanted to try and help them out by doing my little bit :)
I'm not going with them to Yorkshire but I've told them to take lots of photos and I'll share those when they get back.
If you made it down this far...Thank you :D
