4 CANCER SURVIVORS RACE ACROSS THE USA
…ON A BIKE
On the 16th of June 2018, 4 Cancer Survivors and their crew of doctors, mechanics, therapists and helpers are going to take on what is accepted as “The Toughest Bicycle Race in the World”. The RACE ACROSS AMERICA is a 3100 mile long time trial from Oceanside, California on the West Coast of the USA to Annapolis, Maryland, just below Washington on the East Coast. The riders and crew will be racing non-stop, 24Hrs a day and hope to complete the course in around 7 Days. All of this is being done in the name of all the children currently living with cancer in the UK. We are aiming to raise £250,000+ to help our charity Cyclists Fighting Cancer provide vital support for children with cancer.
Why We’re Riding
2018 is a big year for Cyclists Fighting Cancer (www.cyclistsfc.org.uk). As well as continuing to provide bikes and cycling equipment for children living with cancer, we are launching a new service called CFC Active. For the first time in the UK we will be providing one to one sessions with specially trained exercise advisers for teens and young adults living with and beyond cancer to help them get more active and confidently take up a new sports and pastimes. Staying active is an essential component in overcoming almost all side affects presented by cancer treatment. #restisnotbest.
