Nicaragua to Costa Rica for Marie Curie

On 11th February 2017, Brian Allen, Design & Product Development Director at CP Cases embarked on an epic sponsored bike ride for Marie Curie. A challenge he has never encountered before. He took on the equivalent of either 16 x Ditchling Beacons, 4 x Mount Snowdon, 3 x Ben Nevis or 1/2 a Mount Everest as he ascends over 4,000 metres in just a week. But less of us and more of him, here’s what Brian has to say.

“I am pushing myself to the limit for Marie Curie because they care for people living with terminal illness. Nicaragua to Costa Rica Cycle 2017, 11 Feb 2017 to 18 Feb 2017.

I’ve committed to join with a team of other fundraisers and am embarking on a cycle challenge covering  around 300 kilometres in five days. In February 2017 we’ll ride from Granada in Nicaragua to San Jose in Costa Rica. The cycle route will ascend more than 4000 metres. A challenge far, far outside of anything I’ve ever taken on before.

I’m raising money for Marie Curie because our family experienced first-hand how distressing it can be when someone you love has a terminal illness. It highlights why the work of Marie Curie is so important.

Marie Curie Nurses care for people with any terminal illness. Not just terminal cancer – and they look after the whole family.

They provide support and reassurance to people at the worst time in their lives. It’s not just the person that is ill, but those who care for them too, who can be left with the lasting effects of losing someone.

The Marie Curie organisation need donations to continue running its Nursing Service, its hospices, its Support Line and much more. So please donate if you can. More information please visit their website

With all my heart I thank you

Brian Allen
