Over £1,000 raised!! Inspired by the Tour de France, Mike Lynch took to the saddle to cycle in Prudential RideLondon 2018. Mike took on a grueling 100 mile cycle challenge, starting in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, he cycled through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s truly was a spectacular event. The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 finished on The Mall in central London, shortly before 150 professional cyclists race in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on a similar route. Mike has raised in excess of £1,000, with donations still being collected. This is a superb amount of money to raise and we can’t thank you enough. We hope that you are injury free Mike and that your legs are recovering. Well done and thank you again!
£560 raised!! On Sunday 3 June 2018, Steveie Parker took on the Alloa Half Marathon. Stevie explains below his reasons for running and wanting to support the Chris Mitchell Foundation: ‘Without knowing Chris personally, but as a Queen of the South (QofS) fan, I admired Chris and his effort and style of play during his time there and all of my fellow New Bazaar Doonhamer supporters club friends share my thoughts. You’ll have seen them wearing their Derek Lyle masks at the Brechin City FC match at the end of the season to raise funds for the foundation and I’ve already marked their cards to get their wallets ready for next season!’‘I also feel connected to Chris through his other team due to my two sons being die hard Falkirk FC fans where I also did some volunteer coaching when my older son played for one of their community teams klicka här nu.’ ‘So, if supporting QofS wasn’t enough of an ordeal, I’ve taken up endurance running too! It’s one of the best de-stressing methods I’ve found and helps me really clear my head and sort through any troubling issues of the day.’ Stevie completed the Alloa half marathon, in sweltering temperatures and in an impressive time of in 2hrs and 5mins. He even managed to bag himself a bunch of flowers for his efforts and celebrated with a well earned cold pint. Thank you very much Stevie!
