CDS get on their bike to raise money for British Heart Foundation
CDS staff will take part in a cycle challenge to coincide with the Tour de Yorkshire to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and in memory of our colleague Adrian Brown who recently passed away following a sudden heart attack.
We are aiming to cycle the total distance of the professional event, a staggering 705km over five days from 27 April to 4 May.
A spin bike, kindly provided by PureGym, has been set up in our office and CDS staff hope to complete the full Tour de Yorkshire course.
This event is open to CDS staff of all cycling levels from beginners to budding Bradley Wiggins. The challenge will be divided into half-hour slots and we will also be counting any kilometres from staff who have cycled to work during the week.
CDS Managing Director, Mark Gair said: "It is great to see another fantastic charity raising event at CDS and non-more so than raising funds for the British Heart Foundation. With the recent incredibly sad loss of our colleague Adrian Brown, raising awareness whilst keeping fit and burning calories in the office is a fitting tribute. Next year we may even have some contenders in the Tour de Yorkshire!"
CDS also has a Just Giving page for anyone who wants to donate. Please visit our page and give generously: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cdstourdeyorkshire
British Heart Foundation is a major funder and authority in cardiovascular research, education, and care, and relies on voluntary donations to meet its aims.
So, every kilometre and pound counts, we want to thank everyone who is supporting this event and look forward to seeing CDS staff on their bike.
