In the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
On the 29th July, 28 members of HTA cycled 100 miles as they participated in Ride London Surrey 100 – the cycling equivalent of running a marathon!
HTA’s cyclists managed to raise nearly £20,000 to which HTA will add another £10,000 meaning the overall contribution will be £30,000 to Breast Cancer Care – a huge achievement.
Despite an unfortunate dip in the summer weather conditions, the HTA peloton set off from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, darting through the closed London roads before bursting into Richmond Park and out into the Surrey countryside. The team overcame the wind, the rain and some hefty leg-testing climbs and returned to London to be greeted by cheering crowds as they cruised down the Mall and crossed the finish line in front of Buckingham Palace.
We would like to thank everybody who donated and supported the team, enabling us to give such a huge amount to an amazing charity.
Our Chosen Charity - Breast Cancer Care:
150 women a day are diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the UK. Breast Cancer Care provides much needed guidance and information for families who struggle to understand what has happened and to enable them to deal with the effects of the disease. Charities like this provide much needed information and support at critical moments and deserve our help.
