The Charity

Our chosen charity for this epic ride was easy to choose. 
As a few of us in the team have been indirectly affected by cancer in one way or another, it made sense to raise money for:

"Funded entirely by the public, Cancer Research UK is working to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

They’ve been going since 1902 and along the way they’ve achieved a long list of firsts. Now they’re pushing well into the future – developing newer, kinder treatments, getting closer to cures.
More than 1 in 3 of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives and with our ageing population, this statistic is getting worse.

Cancer Research UK funds over half of the UK’s cancer research, including the life-saving work of over 4000 scientists, doctors and nurses fighting cancer on all fronts. Every day, their researchers make cutting-edge discoveries in their labs, and their doctors and nurses pioneer new treatments with patients in hospitals. This is why their research is so vital and why they need the public’s support to keep forging ahead to create more tomorrows for more people with cancer.

Research isn’t the only thing they do. Every year they help millions of people get the information they need to understand the disease. And, together with Cancer Research UK's supporters, they campaign on key cancer issues including access to cancer drugs, screening and reducing the use of tobacco."
