We give 1% of out total gross sales to our registered charity partner, Cyclists Fighting Cancer.
Cyclists Fighting Cancer help support children and young people living with and beyond cancer across the UK.
Each year approximately 2,400 children and young people (up to and including
the age of 18) are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. We feel passionately about
supporting these families along this difficult journey. CFC help children to regain
their physical fitness, improve mental wellness and increase their socialisation by giving them new bikes, adapted trikes and specialist support during treatment and into recovery.
Since the charity began in 2005, CFC has awarded over 8,000 bikes/trikes to children and their families.
Cancer causes massive disruption in families; therefore, CFC also give bikes to their siblings, and in some cases their parents, in order that they can take part in an activity as a family once again after what can be years of hospitalisation and upheaval.
The effects of the disease and associated treatment regimes in children are numerous; amputations, balance issues, physical weakness, coordination difficulties and lack of self-esteem are just a few of the most common side effects seen in many patients.
Exercise has been shown in numerous adult studies to be the single most
effective way of improving both physical and mental wellness for people
surviving cancer. CFC encourage cycling as the best form of exercise-based
rehabilitation, especially for children because it provides all the same benefits
but in a low impact, fun, sociable and exciting way.
The charity operates totally on the kind support of its fundraisers, so all monies make a huge difference. Find out more about Cyclists Fighting Cancer or please give them a follow on Instagram and Facebook.
