Intrepid cyclist Rob Case has just completed a mammoth cycle ride in memory of his much-loved brother Andrew. His sibling passed away suddenly last year at the age of 48.
“Following the unexpected death of my brother Andrew Case, one year ago, it cemented in my mind that I wanted to set myself a physical challenge to raise some money for charity in his memory. “Having lost another brother to a heart condition when I was just seven and also my best friend five years ago, it felt that now was the chance to push myself, remembering them but also to raise some money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), a charity that is close to the heart in the circumstances, providing support not just to me but me extended family in this time of need.“I have been fortunate to have been the recipient of heart screening recently and I felt that I wanted to give something back to help others in the future, accordingly I took on this challenge to raise funds for CRY.
“In total, I covered 1,934 miles in 23 days of cycling and I have climbed over 27,000 meters (over three times the height of Everest)!
“A massive thank you to those that have supported me. It has been a fantastic experience, a massive physical and mental challenge and most importantly I have raised more than £4000 + gift aid for such a great charity.
