Harry’s Hairy Bike Ride 2012
4 CHARITY, 3 COUNTRIES, 2 MEN, 1 BEAR!
Two adventurous friends are taking on the challenge of a lifetime as part of a charity cycling trial. Gary Jackson and Craig Smith will be attempting to cycle the 868 miles from John O’Groats to lands End in just eight days in aid of local charity Hull & East Riding Institute for the Blind and UK charity Help for Heroes.
Whilst the pair are used to getting on their bikes, neither has attempted anything quite this ambitious before. To keep costs down and raise as much money as possible, they have also planned every detail for themselves; route, accommodation, transport, logistics and the all important charity fundraising.
Accompanying them on the trip will be HERIB’s hairy mascot Harry the HERIB Bear who will be providing back up support and daily motivational pep talks as well as hopefully collecting donations along the way.
The challenge begins on 1st April and all profits raised will be split equally between the two charities.
Angela Gregory, Fundraising Manager at HERIB says: “It’s great that Gary and Craig are cycling JOGLE 2012. HERIB receives no government funding and every penny raised in aid of HERIB will help make a difference to the lives of local people with sight loss.”
