Fun Bike ride for My Cancer My Choices
Sun 19th May 2019 at 07.00 - 13.30
A fundraising bike ride for the charity which provides complementary therapy and support to patients with cancer in Berkshire
On the 19th May we organised a fun charity bike ride around the Reading area in support of My Cancer My Choices. Sixty people supported this event, the sun even shone!! AW Cycles of Caversham kijndly provided expert assistance for bikes and riders.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event. The overriding comments were that it was extremely well organised with seasoned riders commenting that they do not see an event so well organised at the more established bike rides. They also said that they would like to do it again!
The main purpose of the day was to have a fun event, to raise awareness of Reading Matins Rotary, My Cancer My Choices and to raise money. We were successful on all counts.
We are nearly at £3,000 which will provide 180 complementary therapy treatments for people at the start of a cancer diagnosis and during treatment. So far the charity have supported 800 Berkshire cancer patients and this money will enable us to treat many more. Our heartfelt thanks to the Reading Matins Rotary for their support.
