Yvonne and John are off on another adventure!
Possibly the hardest thing they have ever taken on will be the Raid Alpine in June 2020.
For two people who haven't cycled extensively to be considering this ride is either naive or nuts. The jury is out!
Riding for 6 days covering over 800km and climbing over 19000 metres is a huge challenge, thats the equivalent of cycling up Mount Everest twice in a week.
The motivation to do this comes from their eagerness to support The Cure Parkinsons Trust a fabulous charity focussed on finding a cure for Parkinsons by funding research. Yvonne and John have lived with effects of this disease for 8 years since John's diagnosis on 2012 and with recent advances in drug, stem cell and exercise trials there is hope that breakthroughs will soon be able to halt or even reverse Parkinsons Disease.
This is why they are asking you to help them raise a figure of £4,000.00
Any amount would be very welcome, whether it is forgoing your next coffee in Starbucks or Costa Coffee, or having a small glass of wine instread of large. This would help reach the target, you never know you might decide to do this over a number of weeks or months. Whatever you decide to donate rest assured it will help in the fight against this disease for which there is no cure at present.
You can make a difference!
