Trevor's Cross Florida Ride for Macmillan

10 December 2015
On 3rd April 2016 Trevor Magee from Ballymena Road Club will take part in the 35th Cross Florida Ride, cycling 170 miles in one day, to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

See Trevorís Facebook page for more information and a short video - www.facebook.com/RideForMacmillan 

Here is Trevorís story for doing this charity event "Recently while sitting in the City Hospital with a friend waiting for some radiotherapy I was shocked as I counted around 30 people waiting to be called, with ages from as young as 10 years old to people in their 70ís. As I sat there the thought occurred to me that in reality this could be me waiting to be called as cancer has no respect for age.

After much thought I decided I would really like to do something to support a Cancer Charity After meeting with the various charities I decided I would like to offer some support in a financial way to Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan work in what I think are such sad cases by bringing comfort and assistance to those that are terminally ill. Even just witnessing the care they gave to a past work colleague of mine was heart melting as he spent his last few weeks before he sadly passed away.

The event I intend to complete on the 3rd April 2016 is the 35th Cross Florida Ride in which I will cycle 170 miles from east to west Florida in one day. In doing so I hope to try and raise some funds for the worthwhile cause that the Macmillan Cancer Support group carry out on a daily basis."
