Lands End to John O'Groats cycle.....for Charity
Karen Stroud, Chapplins Company Director has for the last 4 years raised money for Breast Cancer Campaign on "Wear it pink day". Karen has raised around £2000 in sponsorship and public donations during this time.
This year Karen and husband Andy have decided to go one step further, or many steps further and attempt to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats over 11 days completing nearly 100 miles a day.
In the UK breast cancer is the most common cancer and one woman in nine will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Karen & Andy are raising money for Breast Cancer Campaign as their mission is "to beat breast cancer" and personally Karen's Auntie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and her daughter's best friend lost her mum to breast cancer when she was only 15.
The money raised will be used to provide funding for research into finding an absolute cure for the disease and so all donations will go towards helping to save the lives of more mums, daughters, friends and colleagues.
You can donate on Karen's Just giving webpage http://justgiving.com/karen-stroud-lejog or send cheques payable to Breast Cancer Campaign to Chapplins, 21 Spur Road, Cosham Portsmouth PO6 3DY.
