Fundraiser of the Month: Teddy and Oliver and their 15km cycle

Starting the challenge  

Teddy completed a bike ride when he was four years old for Children with Cancer UK and wanted to do another challenge this year. Oliver is his best friend so he asked him to join in and Oliver was excited to accept the challenge. They said:

We chose a bike ride as it’s something we both enjoy. We found it hard to decide on the distance as we don’t usually measure how far we go and the forecast was hot for that day but we needed to do a pretty big distance to get our sponsorship, so we decided on 15km. The challenge was really hard, it was hot, we got nettle stings and some insect bites. Once we got to the half way point it was much better as we then could understand how much further we had to go to finish.

Teddy explains why it was important to him and Oliver that they support Children with Cancer UK:

We wanted to help poorly children as it’s horrible when anyone has cancer but must be especially bad when you’re little.

For anyone thinking of doing their own fundraiser, Teddy and Oliver advise:

If you are thinking of doing a challenge we say ‘go for it’. Pick something you really like doing and make it as hard as you can so you get more people to sponsor you.

By taking on their cycle, and setting up their fundraising page, Teddy and Oliver exceeded their target and have raised an amazing £300 for Children with Cancer UK’s work, which will help us invest in more life-saving childhood cancer research. We’d like to say a huge thank you for your support – it is only thanks to supporters like you that we can continue our work.

If you would like to raise money in aid of Children with Cancer UK, we’ll help you every step of the way.  Start fundraising today
