Sinai Cycle

Hi, your here so I guess you have donated, or are about to!

In November 2009 I am to take part in a fund raising event to help the British Heart Foundation (along with the other charities HEART UK, echo, & Cardiac Risk in the Young)
The event is a 420km cycle in Sinai, with a little trek (4-5 hours)up Mt. Sinai its self thrown in for good measure! "Trek day" includes a 115km cycle - guess that's long a day then!

In the past I have taken part in other "Charity Treks" - Nepal, Peru and Morocco were my fund raising has totalled some £6,000. I also help on Charity Events in the UK - for Regain "Snowdon Challenge" and for Action Research "Race the Sun", events which raise in excess of £75,000 each.

In the past I have done events because "they where there", this time I feel compelled after the loss of my friend Steve Goacher and it is for him that I am to undertake the challenge.

During the year I am to take part in other (Training ?) events -

1st March - 10mile BHF walk at Calke Park
15th March - Stafford 1/2 Marathon
25th April - Thunder Run 10k - Catton Park
14th June - the Marin Rough Ride - off road Cycle in Wales some 75km/7,000ft.
7 - 15th November - Sinai Cycle
My challenge - quite clear - yours? my fundraising target is £2500.00 so, I am asking quite nicely, your challenge is to donate! easily done through at
Simlpy scroll to my name from the list, under "to support" and follow instructions, or a good old fashioned cheque - any donation no matter how small (or large) will be gratefully accepted and I thank you in antcipation.

so keep an eye on the blog where I will try and keep you updated with my progress (or lack of it!) and also my fund raising totals.
