2017

(article is still a draft, I will try to add notes along the way)

In 2017 I made my lone three-day trip to fundraise for pancreatic cancer research fund on University of Liverpool. The idea was plain simple. I recently became a father to a lovely boy. I wanted to invest in my own health for him, having in mind that years ago I lost my own father to pancreatic cancer. Planning long cycle ride is a great target to keep the mind on staying fit and looking after yourself. Cycling challenge is a good way to give your minimal input to the cause.

2017 Fundrising 300MilesForDad

I was hugely influenced by the event that my friend participate to Informatycy Na Rowery where they cycle to fundraise to support various causes, mostly medical treatment for children. and would like to make a small version of their cause in the UK.

Last, but not least important I found cycling a great way to sign a life milestone when I did 200 miles in two days just a few days before my own wedding - in shape of a heart.
