Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge, 23rd May 2016
Congratulations to Jamie Watson, a committee member of the Fibrous Dysplasia Support Society, who, with three others, successfully completed the 175-mile Coast to Coast cycle challenge from Whitehaven to Scarborough. The four day challenge passed through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Moors, with some pretty serious climbs involved. Jamie comments:
Thank you everyone for all your support and donations. There were 4 of us in the end that braved blazing sunshine, some monstrous hills, lots of rain on day 3, 2 punctures, a few tears! And some very sore bottoms but we made it and feel very proud. As of today (27/6/2016) the total raised has gone past £4400 (not including gift aid) which we are very excited and proud about and hopefully that will go a large way to funding next year's conference which we hope to bring Dr Collins and his team from the United States back over.
Jamie Watson, a committee member of the Fibrous Dysplasia Support Society, ran the Derby Ramathon 2015 on Sunday 7th June to raise funds for FDSSUK. Congratulations, Jamie, on completing the half marathon, and raising £379.76.
