Helen Rollason Cancer Charity is delighted to announce that its annual cycle event Ride for Helen is taking place on Sunday 16th May 2021 for its eighth year!
Plus, cyclists now have the opportunity to take part in a Virtual Ride for Helen which can be completed in their own space and time.
Cyclists from across the county and beyond will be meeting at Crix in Hatfield Peverel, Essex to take part in this fantastic, family-friendly event which offers a choice of four cycling routes to suit all capabilities.
You now have the option to sign up for a Virtual Ride for Helen; simply choose your distance and cycle in your own space and time. This year there are four circular routes through the beautiful Essex countryside with distances of 6 miles, 15 miles, 30 miles and 65 miles all starting and finishing at Hatfield Peverel. All adult registrations for the 6 mile route qualify for TWO FREE CHILD places.
Helen Rollason Cancer Charity CEO Kate Alden said: “Last year almost 600 cyclists from around the county and beyond took part in Ride for Helen 2020, raising in the region of £35,000! We are all really looking forward to this year’s Ride for Helen which is always such an exciting and popular event; we know many people took up cycling during Lockdown so this is a great opportunity to get outside on two wheels again and support Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. We are also delighted to welcome Paralympic Gold medallist Danny Crates who will be taking part in the 65 mile route.”
During Lockdown we have been supporting clients with welfare calls and telephone counselling as well as setting up an online directory of support and virtual groups. Between July and December 2020, we provided almost 1,000 hours of counselling to support people living with cancer. If cycling isn’t your thing but you’d still like to get involved, why not volunteer on the day?
We have lots of fun and exciting roles for you to get stuck into – call us on 01245 380719 for more information or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
