Coast to Coast in a Day
Congratulations to our COO Chris Ayres and his team mate Andy Brooks for successfully completing the Coast to Coast In a Day challenge to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity’s Super Sam’s Fund.
Super Sam’s was set up in memory of a special young boy - Sam Dorrance - who battled a highly aggressive brain tumour when he was just four year’s old. Sadly, despite various treatments, Sam succumbed to his condition when he was five years old.
The Brain Tumour Charity is committed to projects that research better, more effective treatments for brain cancers and Super Sam’s Fund ensures that 100% of donations go specifically to support efforts to improve the treatment of childhood brain cancers. Chris and Andy had wanted to raise money for Super Sam’s for some time, with both having small but important links to Sam and his family.
Coast to Coast In a Day is a gruelling challenge which involves cycling 150 miles and a climb of 4,500m in a day. Starting in the Lake District, Chris and Andy made their way through the Yorkshire Dales, the Vale of York and the wild North York Moors before finishing in the seaside town of Whitby.
It’s an amazing achievement and Chris and Andy have raised over £4,000 to date.
