Women V Cancer Ride the Night London 2023

In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 I did Ride The Night in memory of my twin sister, Wendy Mart, who lost her very long battle with ovarian cancer on 18th December 2013.

Over the four events, I raised over £10,000 for the three charities, and at that point, decided that it was time for a break, not saying that I would never do it again, but not right now.

So why 2023? Its a big birthday year, and more importantly its the birthday that Wendy said she would be happy to see. I always knew that I would seek to do something 'big' in 2023, but I must admit that Ride The Night wasn't on my radar! That is, until this years Ride The Night that took place 2 days ago on Saturday 30th April 2022. Like a lot of events, it hasn't been able to run for the last two years and seeing all the inspirational posts this weekend got me to thinking, that maybe it is time again. 

A lot of people have sponsored me over the last 8 years, and I totally understand if it this is not something that everyone wants to support me with again. We are always being asked to support different events, and you cannot support everyone. So with my newfound talent with the sewing machine, I plan to make stuff to sell to help me to get to my goal.

I'm taking on Women V Cancer Ride the Night to raise vital funds for three important charities at a time when they need it most. Breast Cancer Now, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action's fundraising has been hit hard over the past two years; but their information and support services have been needed more than ever. All three charities have continued to provide vital information and support to thousands of patients. I’m challenging myself to cycle 50km or 100km through London at night so that these charities can continue to be there for people facing breast, ovarian and cervical cancers.

Please support me and the Women V Cancer charities on my challenge and make a donation. Whatever you can donate, any amount will be split evenly Breast Cancer Now, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and will go a very long way.

Thank you.

This is such an excellent way to mark the ‘special birthday’ year. Good luck with the ride - looking forward to seeing the goods for sale (hope there’s one of those awesome bags up for grabs!)
