A team of 10 novice bikers from Bristol-Myers Squibb participated in Country 2 Country 4 Cancer, an epic annual cycling event which set off from Tours, France on Friday 22 September. The team cycled over four days, and approximately 720km, to cross the finishing line in Uxbridge on Monday 25 September.
Jane Lyons and Ingrid Copperman from Cancer52 were present at a reception to welcome the riders back and congratulate the team on their efforts. Jane spoke to the members of the BMS UK head office about the work of Cancer52 and Ingrid gave a patient’s perspective.
The team raised an incredible £8437 which has been donated to Cancer52.
Congratulations to all of our amazing #C2C4Cancer riders!
After 18 days and a whopping 4,000 kilometres through six different countries, the 2017 Country 2 Country 4 Cancer bike ride finally comes to an end today in Uxbridge, England.
Our amazing team of UK riders peddled their way across the finishing line earlier this afternoon, brightening up grey and cloudy skies with the news that they managed to raise more than £7,000 towards the fight against rare and less common cancers!
Cancer52 would like to extend a massive thank you to all of #C2C4C riders who accomplished the challenge with awe-inspiring determination and resolve; and of course, to all of you who rallied on the team and donated to the cause.
