01 Sep Join The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity next month as Challenge Cancer Cycle returns
On Sunday 27 September, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is hosting their tenth annual cycling event to raise money for local people with cancer.
There are three picturesque routes available; 25 miles, 40 miles and 80 miles, starting and finishing at Aintree Racecourse. The carefully designed routes reach areas such as Parbold and Rivington Pike. It is a great day for all involved with some challenging but incredibly scenic cycling.
Event Manager Mark Parkinson said “The charity has for the last ten years hosted their own cycling event and so the fact that we have the green light to put on Challenge Cancer Cycle is fantastic news! For this year we will have social distancing restrictions in place and have had to limit the number of participants we can host, but we are so grateful each and every year to our wonderful cyclists and we look forward to once again welcoming them back to what is a great event.”
The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is the only dedicated charity for patients and research at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and have recently opened up their fantastic new hospital in Liverpool. It is thanks to incredible supporters and fundraising that The Charity is able to provide an environment in which local people with cancer receive the best possible treatment and experience.
Adrian McDonough is taking on the 25 mile route of Challenge Cancer Cycle 2020 having received treatment at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre for the past eight years. “The centre has supported and treated me throughout my long battle with Melanoma and more recently a brain tumour. This is my way of giving a little something back for everything they have done and continue to do for everyone fighting cancer. I am really looking forward to giving a little back to such an amazing and lifesaving charity and place.”
To ensure participants are able to social distance, places are strictly limited.
