Gareth completes mammoth charity cycle

Gareth celebrates reaching the Adriatic sea.

Chilton’s Gareth Brown has completed his 2,000km charity cycle ride from the Baltic Sea in Poland to the Adriatic Sea in Croatia, raising £1,738.79 in aid of research into prostate cancer.

The 28 year-old, whose father was diagnosed with the disease ten years ago, has financed the epic 5-week cycle himself.

He said: “With it now being 10 years since my Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer this means a lot.

“He is fighting fit now and I’m very thankful for everything that Prostate Cancer UK are doing to support this cause. Approximately 1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer in the UK at some point in their lives, therefore donating whatever you can would certainly go towards helping a lot of families. Thank you in advance.”

There’s still time to help Gareth reach his target of £2,000. Simply visit Just Giving and search for ‘Gareth Brown’, before choosing your donation amount.

Just £10 pays for one hour of a research assistant’s time, providing valuable support in laboratory settings and helping research projects run smoothly.
