My target 100 kms
Women V Cancer Ride the Night London 2023
Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
On the 29th of April 2023 at 21:00 pm, I will be taking on the challenge to cycle 100km throughout the night on a route that will take me & hundreds of other women past famous London landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square & Buckingham Palace to name but a few.
The Women V Cancer Ride the Night is the largest Women only cycling event in the U.K, raising awareness and much needed funds for three fantastic Cancer charities: @joscervicalcancertrust @ovariancanceraction @breastcancernow
I have been closely linked to all three charities during my perioperative career. As an Operating Department Practitioner, I’ve had the responsibility & privilege to care for patients & families who have been affected by ovarian, cervical & breast cancer. I have also witnessed the devastating affect of this terrible disease amongst my own family & friends, being part of their lives at such a difficult time.
I think that it is fair to say that I am not at the peak of my physical fitness!! I missed the opportunity to undertake the ride in 2022 which was disappointing. This ride is physically & mentally challenging however, as always, I am committed to putting in the training hours long in order to support the incredible work that these charities do, raising funds for support services; research, networks, resources, & helplines.
This ride will be something special, a chance to participate & contribute towards the fight against Cancer. I am looking forward to meeting amazing individuals, listening to their experiences & stories…Women working together to do something amazing!!
In 2021 we rode for hours through torrential rain, thunderstorms, floods, and hail… I am hopeful not to repeat that again!
Throughout the year I will update you on my progress, the training rides. & aching muscles via my just giving page & social media.
