Matt Cubitt – British Cycling Festival 100 – Big C
I am planning to ride the 100 mile cycle ride in the British Cycle Festival in June. A 100 mile cycle will be a good challenge and will require me to put in some serious training before race day. But what better inspiration than trying to raise some money for a good cause and the Big C is certainly a great cause.
I was inspired to ride this race by the story of local girl Sophie Taylor and her fight against cancer. Her inspirational story made me thing about my father and all the other people that I know that have been affected by cancer. Please help me raise money to help the Big C support local people affected by cancer.
What I’m doing:
British Cycling Festival 100 Mile Cycle Ride
Why I’m fundraising:
My father died of a brain tumour when I was 15. His father, my grandfather, died of lung cancer before a really had a chance to get to know him and hear about his life. Cancer has also affected many other family members and friends family members.
I am riding the 100 mile route in the British Cycling Festival to raise money for the Big C.
The Big C funds four drop in support and information centres across Norfolk and Waveney that are used by thousands of people every year affected by cancer. The centres in Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and Norwich provide valuable information about diagnosis, treatments, side effects and recovery. Trained staff are also there to provide emotional help, support and complementary therapies.
