Great News: We have spaces available to participate in this year’s Prudential Ride London!
MDS UK is delighted to announce that we have spaces available to participate in this year’s Prudential Ride London, on Sunday 29th July 2018. This is one of the legacies of the 2012 London Olympic Games and will give us an opportunity to both raise awareness of the issue of MDS as well as a fantastic opportunity to raise money.
Prudential Ride London
Entry Deadline is 17:00 on Friday 25 May 2018
Prudential Ride London provides a fantastic platform to help fulfill The Mayor of London and Transport for London’s goal of encouraging more people to cycle more safely, more often. TfL anticipates tens of thousands of spectators and participants every year will take up regular cycling after each event. This will be achieved by creating massive engagement with participants, spectators and media alike.
There is no other closed-road event like it that combines the fun and accessible element of a free family ride in central London with the excitement of watching the world’s best professional cyclists race!
We are offering FIVE places to committed individuals who would want to help us raise funds for MDS UK. They will be joining two other cyclists who already have places – Moni Lau and one of our Patrons, Caitlin Limmer.
Not only are we hoping to field a reasonably sized team on the day to participate but we are also hoping that we can provide support from volunteers on the day to be on the course and look out for our #TeamMDS.
MDS, or myelodysplastic syndromes, are complex blood cancers. The impact of MDS on an individual’s quality of life can be dramatic and devastating. At the current time there is no cure for MDS other than a bone marrow transplant and even then as few as one in 10 patients will be fit enough to survive the rigours of treatment.
Cycling places for this event are in huge demand and will be on a first-come first-served basis. For details of the places available please email us in the first instance to fundraising@mdspatientsupport.
