Saddle Up for the London to Brighton Cycle Ride and Raise Funds for We Build the Future

Built environment cancer charity, We Build The Future, is looking for cyclists to hit the streets and raise funding as part of a marathon 55-mile bike ride from London to Brighton.

The UK’s largest multi-charity cycle ride, the London to Brighton Cycle ride on September 10th begins at Clapham Common and finishes at the Brighton beachfront, with thousands of riders raising money for good causes.  We Build the Future is welcoming riders to participate and raise money as part of its team on this fantastic cycling challenge.

The event will provide an opportunity for everyone, from solo first-time riders and enthusiastic cycling teams, with a picturesque route through the English countryside followed by an energetic and testing climb up Ditchling Beacon before gliding down to Brighton’s seafront.

Commenting Richard Harral, founder of We Build The Future said:

“This is a superb opportunity for anyone wanting to take part in a fantastic challenge and raise crucial funds for our charity. Taking part can make a difference and the funding will go towards improving the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer and to help develop new ways to support industry workers dealing with the impact of cancer.”

Participants will be asked to raise a minimum of £150 per person with 100% of funds going to charity We Build The Future.

We Build The Future works to improve support and advice for people who work in the construction and built environment sector who face the challenge of dealing with cancer in their lives. Helping to fund research, which can accelerate improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer, the charity aims to promote health and wellbeing across the industry to help reduce the risk of people developing cancer in the first place.

Funds raised are shared between research and campaign initiatives, such as our SunSafe campaign and site surgery initiative, to support people in construction to access expert information and to improve health outcomes.
