250 Miles around Norfolk for 3 charities
Having signed up for my 5th Ring of Fire Charity Cycling Event, I can’t help but feel this is probably the most important event in its history.
In May 2023 we’re aiming to raise over £100,000 for 3 charities, one these being 4Ed, a charity established for one of Milton Keynes Rugby Club’s own, Ed Slater who has recently been diagnosed with MND. After having represented and captained both Leicester Tigers & Gloucester rugby clubs, Ed’s rugby career has been cruelly cut short and we hope to raise awareness of MND as well as raise much needed funds for Ed and his family to help in the battle against this disease.
This year’s Cycling challenge will include a 250 mile bike ride around the county of Norfolk over 2 ½ days, 2 x 100 mile rides and 1 x 50 miler. Our base will be the Goat Inn at Skeyton. The challenge as always is to get the 100 + cyclists, some of which are beginner cyclists around the course with minimal injuries while maximising enjoying and of course raising as much as possible for 3 amazing charities.
For the 2023 ride, our 3 chosen charities are:
1. Willen Hospice - End of life palliative care (willen-hospice.org.uk)
2. Ed Slater and the Gloucester Rugby 4ED campaign: Gloucester Rugby- MND support
3. Milton Keynes Rugby Club MKRUFC - Developing the Great Sport of Rugby in Milton Keynes
Please watch the video below to find out a little more from our 2022 ROF challenge and the history of the event.
Everyone involved with The Ring of Fire is a volunteer or fund raiser and all costs to host the events are covered personally so every pound raised goes straight to the charities.
I appreciate the economic environment is really tough at the moment, however, any donations however small (even £5 helps) will help us reach our target for these 3 charities. Thank you in advance!
Congrats on your fabulous ride. Well done you. All the best The Lister Clan xxx🥰
Good luck Andrew! Great Stuff!
Having been in ROF training now for just over 2 months feels good with regular 60 milers now the benchmark. It's been tough with many cold and wet early morning starts!
Andrew's fundraising page will be accepting donations for another 24 days.
Well done boys - just make sure you push old Flowers along!
