Maddie’s cycling across India…

December 14th, 2009   By   Filed Under: Uncategorized

Maddie George is taking part in a tough 370km cycling challenge in India to raise funds to help make a difference to those suffering from cancer.

“I am taking part in the second Big C Cycle Challenge to support the work of four special charities: Marie Curie Cancer Care; Children with Leukaemia; Ovarian cancer action and The Lymphoma Association. I will be among a group of more than 50 people from across the UK who, from 6 – 15 March 2010, will get on their bikes for the challenge. A highlight of my adventurous trip through rural Rajasthan will be a visit to the amazing Taj Mahal followed by a tough five-day cycle ride staying in campsites along the way.

This challenge is very close to my heart and my decision to do this came after I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in early 2009. In what was the most distressing part of my life, I was given support and hope from friends, strangers and charities like these, this is my way of paying something back to all the people that supported me.

Taking part in this challenge will raise funds for these charities which will enable more people to be supported through life threatening illness.
This is far from a holiday, in fact it will be a 5 day gruelling, bumpy and saddle-aching challenge, but we are doing this for all those affected by cancer and that, along with my supportive cycling buddies, will be what gets me through the cycle ride of a lifetime!

So please dig deep and donate now to help us support 4 life-changing charities: Marie Curie Cancer Care; Children with Leukaemia; Ovarian cancer action and The Lymphoma Association.
