Good luck #teamUCLH as they pedal the Pyrenees!

This weekend - 28 June - a team of 14 people, including staff, patients and supporters, are cycling the Pyrenees to raise money for cancer services at UCLH.

This weekend, a team of 14 cyclists - including patients, staff and supporters - are cycling the Pyrenees to raise money for cancer services at UCLH.

The team, led by patient and UCH Cancer Fund long-term supporter Roger MacKenzie, will climb over 2,000 feet each day, culminating in lunch on day two at the Col de Tourmalet, the highest paved mountain pass in the French Pyrenees. 

Staff will be joining the group on what has become an annual cycling challenge at UCLH.  They’ve been training and fundraising hard to raise almost £9,000 between them.

Money raised from the challenge will go to the UCH Cancer Fund, a fund within UCLH Charity, that supports patients, staff and research for people with cancer at UCLH.

Our staff riders, together with their donation links are listed below.  We wish them the very best of luck as they go the extra mile and climb the highest mountain – quite literally - to support UCLH.

 

If the Pyrenees not your thing but you’d like to get active to support UCLH Charity, why not join the London Bridgathon?  This year it’s open to everyone – you can raise money to support any part of UCLH you like.  Find out more here   If you prefer tea and cake to cycling and walking, come and see us at one of the NHS Big Tea parties – details are here
