Laura’s Bologna to Rome Cycle Challenge
I’m embarking on a challenge in September this year, cycling from Bologna in Northern Italy to Rome (over 500 kilometres) to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Jersey, a charity close to my heart and one which touches the lives of so many people.
I’m personally doing it for the survivors of cancer. Firstly for my dad, the rock of my life and who has fought and survived cancer four times, and for my brother, Graeme, who is still fighting his form of cancer but is doing well and coming out the other side.
I’m also doing it for 3 close friends, Caroline Small, Alan Macdonald and Helen Kemp who have all fought their own hard battles recently and thankfully are all still with us and living life to the full.
I cannot not mention Annie though who sadly fought and lost a long battle against the disease and is missed by us all and will always be in our hearts.
All of the above people received care, help and support from Macmillan who made their fights that little bit easier and guided them and their families through the hard times.
Aside from raising money for this amazing charity I’m also doing this ride to give strength and courage to a dear friend of mine, Danny, who for anyone that knows her will agree is one of the most beautiful, caring and wonderful people this world can offer and is currently going through her own struggle.
