Cycling from Ashtead to Maerdy in memory of Karen
In aid of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust I will be cycling approx. 200 miles to mark what would have been mine and Karen's 33rd wedding anniversary.
Raising money for
Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust
Donations accepted until 30-07-2017
My wife Karen died from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis on 22nd December 2015. She was 61. We were together for 36 years, and in that time we welcomed three daughters and a grandson into the world. Karen fought her debilitating and life-limiting illness for the last 2 years of her life and sadly she passed away just as we were about to embark on our retirement together. My family and I feel a huge and indescribable loss for such an amazing wife, mother and grandmother.
It is not known what caused Karen’s Pulmonary Fibrosis, and many others are in the same situation. There is no known cure. Please help by donating what you can.
Cycling 200 miles for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust
In Karen’s memory and in aid of helping the sufferers of Pulmonary Fibrosis I want to mark what would have been our 33rd wedding anniversary with a cycle ride from our home in Ashtead, Surrey to where we were married in Ferndale, Rhondda Valley, and then on to Karen's hometown of Maerdy.
My friends kindly bought me a very nice Boardman hybrid bike for my recent 60th birthday and I have started training with the aim to complete around 200 miles of cycling in 4 days mainly along cycle paths by canals, rivers, and through the countryside that Karen loved so much.
Karen was a true fighter and never gave up. I hope I can emulate her spirit and honour her memory.
