25 Years 25 Counties


25 Years 25 Counties

In the summer of 1986, when I was 14 years old, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia. At the time I was given a 50/50 chance of survival. Thankfully I was one of the lucky ones. Even today, a teenager battling blood cancer has only a 65% chance of surviving.

The summer of 2013 is the 25th anniversary of me being given the all clear from leukaemia, and so I have decided to do something to mark this, to raise awareness that this awful disease can be beaten, as well as raising money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, a charity my family and I have supported for many years.

As I have always been into cycling, I decided to do a charity bike ride, and following an idea from my wife and my sister in law, I and a group of friends will be cycling 25 counties of England in a week – roughly 80 miles a day for seven days – in late June 2013. All of the riders will be raising money through this page, so when you donate, say who you are supporting.

I hope everyone who visits this page will make a donation - and more importantly help spread the word that leukaemia can be beaten. For more information, take a look at my website: www.25years25counties.co.uk.
