Pedal4Prostate take on John O’Groats to Land’s End.

In May of next year Pedal4Prostate are going to be taking on a challenge of epic proportions as they aim to complete 1000 miles in 9 consecutive days for Prostate Cymru.

From John O’Groats in Scotland to Land’s End in Cornwall the team plan to travel an average of 100 miles per day all in aid of Prostate Cymru.

Talking about his motivation for the challenge, event organiser Jonathan Morgan said, “Prostate Cancer and men’s health is something that’s become more and more important in my life these past few years, the work that Prostate Cymru do is fantastic and I wanted to help in any way I could. Last year saw me conquer Kilimanjaro and sport some serious facial furniture for Movember. I was due to climb Mt Toukbal with Brian [Stokes] this year, who’s doing the cycle with me, but due to Covid we were unable to. So, I decided to set off and search for a UK Based challenge.”

He said, “Speaking with Ben [Garvey] we both agreed we needed a challenge and something to focus on for training, and 1000 miles in 9 days is one heck of a challenge. One thing to bear in mind of the 3 mentioned here none aren’t cyclists – at all. Saying that 6/7 of the group didn’t have bikes!”

Taking on the challenge next May are Jonathan Morgan, Brian Stokes, Ben Garvey, Ashley James, Chris Thomas, Gareth John, Steven Beddoes and Wayne Gray.

Speaking about the team, Jonathan said, “So, the challenge was set, the route planned, and I’ve amassed a team I have complete confidence in. There’ll be 7 of us with one support driver. It’s a big challenge but we’re excited to get started, training began this week for some of us. The group is a mixture of friends and business owners I socialise with who are all up for a challenge and happy to begin fundraising for such an important cause.”

The money raised by the Pedal4Prostate team will help raise awareness about prostate cancer and disease, support treatments and improve equipment for prostate disease, and fund research and innovation across Wales to ensure that men suffering with prostate disease have access to the best available treatments from the NHS in Wales.

Pedal4Prostate are still on the hunt for corporate sponsorship in the form of shirt spaces, where we will help your company brand while you help us conquer this challenge, if you’d be interested in, be sure to go to their website by clicking here.

The charity sector has been hit hard by recent events and as a result we have lost a significant amount of fundraising this year due to lockdown restrictions and social distancing measures and we aren’t through this yet.

We are so grateful for challenges like this that are helping us save the males in Wales.
