The main reason behind setting up this challenge is that for the past several years I’ve watched as Dementia has taken hold on my Granddad. Seeing him fade into a different person and the impact the condition has on my Nan and the rest of my family has been difficult. So, I’ve decided to try and do something to maybe help others who are affected by the condition by aiming to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society Cymru .
As this challenge coincides with a Wales Away match, I have chosen Gôl Cymru as another charity to fundraise for. The Gôl! Appeal is the Wales Football Supporters Charity. It is wholly reliant on fund-raising by the fans and aims to help underprivileged children wherever Wales play away. Their good work is evident for all to see on their website and Twitter page.
The final charity we are helping is Kicking Off Against Cancer , of which I am a trustee. It was set up to help those that are affected by cancer in a variety of ways, such as arranging days out/trips away for families or donating toys and games to children’s hospitals. The main aim is to provide support to families and give them some experiences that can help them make long lasting personal memories often at the most difficult of times.
It's going to be a tough 3 days of cycling broken down as follows:
Day 1: Nelson, Caerphilly - St. Clears, Camarthen
Day 2: St. Clears, Camarthen - Wexford, Ireland (via Pembroke - Rosslare Ferry)
Day 3: Wexford - Aviva Stadium, Dublin
We are setting an ambitious fundraising target for this challenge of £500 to each charity. That’s quite a sizable £1500 in total, so any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!
