The Way of the Roses Cycle Challenge

165% Raised

I am Zoe bounds. A 37 year old with 2 children and 2 stepsons, living in York. In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and consequently set up a support group for local people with breast cancer, Breast Friends York, alongside my friend Rachel Bruce who was diagnosed just 14 months before me. Breast Friends York is a support group for residents of York and the surrounding areas who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The group is a peer-led charity, providing regular meetings, friendship and activities which support those living with and beyond a breast cancer diagnosis. With breast cancer now being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK it is vital that we receive funding to ensure the long term sustainability of the group which has become a source of invaluable support for their developing 30+ members. Along my travel I have the pleasure of meeting Greg Hayward who runs the HEAL program for City of York Council. Being a keen cyclist he suggested that he could do this ride in aid of our group, and we have jumped at the chance. So, on the 28th June 2015 Greg Hayward, Graham Morris and Steve Shepherd will tackle The Way of the Roses Cycling Challenge. The ride is an undulating 170 mile route which sets off from Morecombe through some beautiful, hilly, countryside of the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors before reaching the finish location of Bridlington along route 69. This is set to be a long day in the saddle as the challenging ride is set to be completed over just one day. Please help support this ride by giving whatever you can to generate some funds for Breast Friends York!
