Last week finished on a high when I received an email confirming it is full steam ahead with my 2023 fundraising challenge and lets just say that on 11th May I am going to have to put my brave pants on!
Below is the press release which gives more information about the challenge that lies ahead.
The North West 200 is a famous international road race held in Northern Ireland, and I have been lucky enough to be invited to do a charity lap. It is the largest outdoor sporting event in Ireland, attracting over 150,000 spectators and the incredible racers reach speeds in excess of 200mph. Needless to say, I won't quite reach those speeds, however, I will probably be more nervous, more tired and just as elated to cross the finish line after my steady lap.
As usual, I will be trying to raise as much money as possible to help rewrite the future of a spinal cord injury which doesn't just affect the person injured but their loved ones too. To start with I will be looking to get as many auction prizes as possible so please email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help or if you are able to spare a pound or two then that would be amazing- please go to:
I really appreciate the support of Helen Clifford Law, as she has kindly offered to cover my expenses on this challenge.
You may think riding a motorbike isn't a physically demanding challenge as it has an engine but out of all the sports I have done it tires me the most. With that in mind, as well as making sure I am as confident to negotiate the twists and turns on the course, I will be out on track days from March building up my strength and ability.
