Pink Wig Riders – Raising Money
May 15th 2015. My Mum, Sally Hicks-Wood passed away from Breast Cancer. It came suddenly after only being diagnosed with a recurrence 2 weeks earlier. Breast Cancer affects everyone in some way, whether it is direct family or close friends. everybody knows somebody.
For a long time I have wanted give something back and to challenge myself at the same time. I also aim to raise as much money as possible. So along with my two good friends Ryan Kitchener and Stefan Churcher we have decided to do the Prudential Ride London 2018. It is a 100 miles long. most definitely a step out of the comfort zone.
We have decided to do the ride in support of the Falmouth based, Pink Wig Events. The Pink Wiggers has been going since 2009 and have raised just short of £100,000 for charity. Their aim is to support funds for vital research projects and to provide the best care for cancer patients in Cornwall. Pink Wig Events was started by my Mum (Sally) and are now run by an amazing group of 5 people led by Emma Kent.
We are committed to doing what we do for our children, their children and their children. Breast Cancer will be eradicated one day and hopefully myself, Ryan and Stefan can contribute to the amazing work these charities are doing.
We need all of our friends, family, and acquaintances to donate, even if it is £1. All of the money is going to such an important cause and you can donate right here.
