Bike Ride to Amsterdam for Prostate Cancer Fundraising
Written by Sheppey FM on 04/06/2019
Ray Bates joined Keith at Sheppey FM to share the latest achievements of his amazing German Shepherd therapy & reading dogs, and to update us about his own fundraiser challenge this Friday. As a part of #TeamAddicks he is cycling 146 miles, over a 2 day period, from the former London Olympics Lea Valley Velo Park to Amsterdam, as part of Prostate Cancer Uk’s “Football to Amsterdam” fundraiser. Ray said “At 60 years old I was convinced by a group of football fans to take part in a cycle ride from London to Amsterdam, not having been on a bike for some 50 years it was quite a challenge. But listening to friends who have lost family members made me determined to take this on.” He joked that he intended to return on Monday via Eurostar and not by ambulance! Ray has raised £1,230 in donations so far.
