Nicaragua to Costa Rica
On 11th February 2017 Brian Allen, Design & Product Development Director CP Cases embarks on an epic sponsored bike ride, a challenge he has never encountered before. He’s taking on the equivalent of either 16 x Ditchling Beacons, or 4 x Mount Snowdons, or 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, 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 Marie Curie 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 and 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 on Marie Curie can be found on their website www.mariecurie.org.uk.
With all my heart I thank you
If you’d like to make a donation, no matter how small, please visit Brian’s JustGiving page here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Brian-Allen5 it’ll mean a great deal to him. And because Brian has covered the costs of the challenge already the money you donate will go directly to Marie Curie.[ssba]
