Charity Ride

Derek George writes :-

Some of you are aware I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back in December 2011 and underwent a radical prostatectomy, meaning I had an operation to remove the whole of my prostate gland, in February 2012.

It is three years since the operation and with a PSA level virtually undetectable at my last check up in February.

I still suffer some side effects from the operation. This is likely with being overweight, which I hoping it to be, else another operation might be needed.

Anyway, in a bid to highlight this disease I decided to enter the Moors and Shores Adventure Cross 2015. I’ll be doing the 60 mile Massif ride. This is an off road challenge from Dalby Forest to Scarborough and back, mainly on old railway lines, and takes place on April 12th.

I have chosen two charities to raise money for – Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance (NCCA UK) and Prostate Cancer UK. The choice is yours.

Gaby Alderson’s JustGiving page for NCCA UK is here.

My JustGiving page for Prostate Cancer UK is here.

Thank you for reading.
