On Sunday 7th February, 20 students alongside two sabbatical officers took part in a 24-hour cycling event to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, as part of their London to Paris bike ride challenge.
Travelling over 1300 miles in total, the team raised £250 for the charity, while promoting the cycling and triathlon club here at Brunel.
George Ravenhall, who played a key role in organising the event, said: “It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning, afternoon and evening. There was tremendous support shown by the Brunel Student contingent.”
“We couldn't have wished for a better opportunity to raise money for a great cause.”
When asked about the physical challenge, participant Mayoor Jobanputra responded, “It was tough! The final 10 minutes of my two hour stint really killed me, if you can't sit properly you're done for.”
Michael Darlow, VP Student Activities, who also took part, commented: “The 24-hour cycle really was a great success. Our objectives were to raise money for Breast Cancer Now and to raise awareness of the Brunel Triathlon and Cycling Club! I do believe we achieved both of those!”
“We raised over £250 for Breast Cancer Now and I would like to thank everyone who was involved! Special thank you to George Ravenhall for making this all possible!”
