Chris Myhill in Training for his challenges
Sunday 4 August will see Chris Myhill, a teacher from Ysgol Ty Coch in Tonteg, take on the final part of his triple charity challenge, the Prudential Ride London 100 event.
He will be taking on the challenge of riding 100 miles through London and out into the Surrey countryside, following a course used for the London 2012 Olympic road race. Leading up to this he will not only be running the Blenheim Palace Triathlon in June, he will also be entering the National Lottery Olympic Park run in July this year.
Chris said, ' The Prudential Ride London 100 ride is part of a weekend of cycling activities in London, including a UCI professional road race following my ride later in the day. I will be riding for Macmillan Cancer Support and I am aiming to raise over £1000 to support their valuable work.
'I will be blogging as I train for this event and try to get in shape. This will be a real challenge for me and I hope you can support me as I take on the road to London in 2013. Anyone who would like to follow my progress can visit my blog.
Debbie Jones, Fundraising Manager in RCT said , 'One in four people diagnosed with cancer in the UK will lack support from family or friends during their treatment and recovery. We believe this is wrong, and that's why we've launched our Not Alone campaign - to make sure that no one has to face cancer alone.
Chris is taking on three challenges of which most supporters would only consider doing once a year or perhaps a lifetime. His superhero efforts are truly inspirational. Time and time again our supporters in RCT go more than the extra mile to help us to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. I’d like to thank Chris for taking on his incredible challenges for Macmillan Cancer Support, if anyone would like to support Chris’ efforts please visit his JustGiving page.
Chris continued , 'I'm delighted to have been given a chance by Macmillan to ride in the wheel tracks of last years Olympians. Their efforts have inspired me to take on this challenge and I hope people can support me and benefit others through Macmillan valuable work.'
