Cycling to fight cancer: We are taking on the London to Brighton bike ride
On 15th September a team from Woods Hardwick will be taking on the London to Brighton cycle challenge in aid of charities Lymphoma Action and The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
Brothers Russell (Planning Director) and Kevin (Land Surveyor) Gray, lost their dad to Sezary Syndrome, a rare and aggressive form of blood cancer earlier this year, and to honour his memory and raise money in his name, they have decided to take on the 55 mile cycling challenge. They will be joined by colleagues at Woods Hardwick, as well as friends and clients.
The 55 mile route starts on Clapham Common and travels through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath. Riders will have to climb the infamous Ditchling Beacon (814 feet above sea level) before a long descent into Brighton and the finish line in front of Brighton Pier.
Over the summer the team is completing a number of training rides in order to gear up (see what we did there!) for the big day.
With a target of £1,000 to raise, the Woods Hardwick cycling team welcome any donation – large or small – that you can give! You can do so via the links below. We look forward to keeping you all posted on their progress!
