Hundreds of bikers ride miles for children with cancer

260 cyclists rode the equivalent of five marathons last weekend, raising £30,000 (and counting) for children with cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

The Sikh Arts and Cultural Association (SACA) organised the sporting event – its largest to date – to raise money for QEHB Charity’s VIP Treatment appeal.

The team completed 130 miles in just 36 hours, setting off from the QE on the morning of Saturday 18th July, and completing their journey in London on Sunday afternoon.SACA

QEHB Charity Chief Executive, Mike Hammond, handed out medals at a special medal ceremony on the finish line, which was followed by a parade and fun day.

Laura Power, Fundraising Officer at QEHB Charity, said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you and well done to all of the SACA team and participants in this year’s ride.

“We are incredibly grateful for their generous support and thank them for involving us in what was a truly wonderful event!”
