Andy Parker - One Day Ahead 2017 challenge

Ladies and Gentlemen

Next month, I am going to be taking part in my biggest ever challenge. I am joining former England footballer, Geoff Thomas and 6 other people to ride the whole of the Tour de France, one day ahead of the peloton of professional riders.
Our cause is dear to Geoff's heart. In 2003, he was diagnosed with Leukaemia and was supported by Professor Charles Craddock at Birmingham's world leading blood cancer centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Since then, Geoff has raised millions of pounds for the charity Cure Leukaemia.
This year, Geoff and 4 others are riding all three of cycling's Grand Tours in the three Tours Challenge. I am just doing one!

I have had to lose weight, and that has been really tough! I have lost a couple of stones from my peak and at least a stone from my good weight. There's more to come off over the next few weeks.
I am training hard. It is intense training. Not the sort of distance I thought I might need to cover (although next Saturday will be 170 - 200 miles), but have to stick to the plan, even in Las Vegas recently!

My ask
I would really, really appreciate any donation you can make to move the whole team forward on its journey - we are targeting raising £1m!
Please, if you can, make a donation to support an amazing charity and help the best scientists and clinicians in the world continue their advance towards finding a cure for Leukaemia.

We have had two brilliant quiz nights so far and I am going to be ritually humiliated at regular intervals in the office with the cake trolley, wearing various fancy dress clothing and getting a soaking, but personal donations would be really fantastic. Please remember to tick the gift aid box.
Many, many thanks.

Kind regards

Andy Parker
