Putting our region's cancer needs first

Cycle of Hope 2022

Over 120 keen cyclists got back in the saddle this July for North West Cancer Research’s annual Cycle of Hope event.

Participants from Cycle of Hope 22

This year’s Cycle, which took place on 26th June 2022, started and finished at Southport Rugby Club and offered participants either
a gentle 60 kilometre route or a more challenging 60 mile course, circling the Lancashire and Merseyside countryside.

The weather was an extra challenge to participants on the day – with high winds throughout their journeys, but they persevered
nevertheless to complete their routes and collect their medals back at the clubhouse.

Participants and their families, as well as the local community, were invited to join the Charity back at the Rugby Club for a celebration, with live music from local Southport band Herds, as well as burgers and beers on the go.

Over £21,000 has been raised through the event, supporting life-saving cancer research and education projects in the North West and
North Wales.

Alastair Richards, CEO of North West Cancer Research, said: “It was amazing to be able to hit the road again for our most popular event,
the Cycle of Hope.

“We extend a huge thanks to everyone who braved the windy weather in support of such an important cause, and to our sponsors, Brown Turner Ross, for helping to make the event possible.

“To see so many people come together was wonderful and the funds raised will have a huge impact on the vital research taking place across
our region, now and in the future.”
