Here is an extract from a message received from CRUK.
Dear Members of the Home to Rome Ride
Thank you so much for taking part in the upcoming Inspired Living bike ride to Rome, and in doing so, joining the fight against cancer.
Research is being carried out across the UK thanks to people like you joining events and raising money for our research.
Every one of your rides raises funds for Cancer Research UK.
If you raise over £50,000 from your 2016 ride we could fulfil a research bursary for up to 3 years.
That means that you and your fellow riders would be able to continue a doctor’s pioneering work in the lab to find new ways to tackle cancer, whilst saving lives in the clinic.
Never underestimate the difference your fundraising could make. 9 out of 10 of our donations are for £10 or less, meaning that all those online donations, texts, & pounds in the pot, help CRUK save lives.
Our research to beat cancer sooner is entirely funded by the public. It’s because of supporters like you, funding our research, that over half a million lives have been saved since the 1980s.
We will find a way to cure all cancers.
With your support we will cross the finish line together.
We will beat cancer sooner.
Your friends at Cancer Research UK
