A Challenge

If you don’t know, we lost John to pancreatic cancer very suddenly towards the end of last year.  Did you know that pancreatic cancer is the 5th deadliest cancer but it only receives 1% of all cancer research funding?  Or that survival statistics haven’t improved at all over the last 40 years (barely 4% will survive 5 or more years). We’ve decided that more needs to be done to stop others from suffering the same kind of loss.

We are going to cycle from our house in St Peter Port Guernsey and we’ll stop at the top of the eiffel tower. We’ll take the ferry from Guernsey to St Malo and then cycle to the bottom of the eiffel tower before climbing the 1710 steps to the top.  Around 280 miles (450km) in all. We leave on the 2nd of June and estimate the journey will take us 5 days.  We’ll update with full journey details as we work out the route we’re going to take.

We are funding the trip ourselves, but hoping for some sponsors – every penny they donate will go to Pancreatic Cancer UK.  Will you help? https://www.justgiving.com/guernsey-paris
