Catherine Lord For Ovarian Cancer Action

Ho Chi Minh City to Angkor Wat Cycle Challenge

mark-lordA huge challenge this one, and hoping to raise in excess of £50,000.

Five brave cyclists, including Catherine's husband Mark, will be cycling from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam right through to the legendary Angkor Wat in Cambodia. A journey of over 500km should see the group enjoy plenty of adventure (as well as saddle sores).

Letter From Mark Lord...

Dear Colleague,

As most of you will know, my dear wife Catherine sadly passed away in January 2012, finally overcome by a relentless cancer she bravely fought for so many years.

We all know how prominent cancer is in today’s society, and while medical advances continue to be made, the number of lives affected continue to increase and I felt compelled to support an organisation which helps others who are fighting or are affected by the vicious physical, emotionally draining and life threatening disease.

SO! I felt it would be appropriate, to honour Catherine’s memory and to help raise money for others who may still have a fighting chance, by finally giving in to my good wife’s relentless nagging to “lose some of that awful weight!”

Therefore, I intend to endure a gruelling cycle challenge, along with other members of my family (who I suspect intend to put my fitness to shame) through Vietnam and Cambodia, covering  525 kilometres between Ho Chi Minh City and Angkor Wat

My company Aztec Oils Ltd. will be sponsoring the event by paying all the travel costs which will enable us to give every penny raised in sponsorship to the Ovarian Cancer Action charity.

Please help to support this worthy cause and dig deep!  You will not only be helping Ovarian Cancer Research but also encouraging an out of condition, overweight man lose a few kilos at the same time.

Warning: Those not forthcoming may subsequently be sent pictures of saddle sores!!  

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
