On Saturday we had the official launch of the Sam White Legacy End 2 End challenge, which was well attended and we are able to announce the following:
On the 25th August 2019 12 cyclists will set out from John O’Groats to ride 1060 miles over 14 days to Lands End. Each rider, including myself, and support team member has their own particular reason for giving up their valuable time and cycling this phenomenal distance. We do however share a collective wish, which is to raise as much money as possible to enable the legacy to continue it’s vital work to raise awareness of the needs of children and young people who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Each cyclist is riding for a child that the legacy has been able to send on a respite break to Center Parcs with their respective family members. A special thank you to the children and their parents for giving us their permission to publish their details. You can all find out more about why each rider is doing this challenge, who they are riding for and the detail of each stage by visiting the following link and clicking on the individual team members. If you wish to donate to a rider or the team as a whole, you can also do this via the same link below:
The Trustees and I would like to extend a special thank you to Sir David Greenaway, who initially suggested this challenge and has been one of the driving forces working with us to put it all together.
We would also wish to thank the Haydn Green Foundation for their sponsorship and support thus far. There are also a number of other potential sponsors who have indicated that they would also like to support us and we hope to be in a position to announce more details over the coming weeks. We are always keen to hear from anyone else who may wish to provide much needed support to this very worthy cause in support of children and their families.
Last, but very much not least, we remain eternally grateful to Creative Minds for all their help, support and brilliant ideas for the branding and fantastic website design over the past few years, which has really helped us raise the profile of the Sam White Legacy.
