Why John is cycling 15 miles everyday in July
John Crozier, 27 from Edinburgh, is taking on the incredible challenge of cycling 15 miles everyday throughout July. He says:
I’ve known my best friends Mum, Elizabeth, for around 10 years and she’s like a Gran to me. She’s 87 years old and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Young at heart, loves company, old movies and a good laugh. She’s very much loved by her family and everyone she knows.
Sadly Elizabeth was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer last year and is currently fighting this horrible disease. This has inspired me to set myself a challenge and raise as much money as I can for Bowel Cancer UK. I gave this a lot of thought and decided that I would cycle 15 miles every day for the month of July and get my family and friends to donate in Elizabeth’s name. I’ve decided to finish my challenge in style on the 31st of July by cycling 31 miles that day, great way to finish my challenge on a high.
I’ve also put my story on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to try and reach as many people as I can and raise awareness of Bowel Cancer UK and their quest to stop people dying from bowel cancer.
