Cystic Fibrosis Trust
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK's only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis. It funds research to treat the symptoms of CF and to find an effective treatment. It also aims to ensure appropriate healthcare for those with Cystic Fibrosis and provides information, advice and support to people with CF and their families across the UK. Cystic Fibrosis is one of the most common, life-threatening diseases in the UK. It affects over 9,000 people and 1 in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes Cystic Fibrosis. If two carriers start a family, each child has a 1 in 4 chance of having Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, by clogging them with thick, sticky mucus making it hard to breathe and to digest food. People with Cystic Fibrosis have to endure a rigorous daily treatment regime including physiotherapy to clear the chest, inhaled and injected drugs to thin the mucus and fight infections and dozens of enzyme pills to help digest food. Each week, five babies are born with CF and sadly, each week three young lives are lost. Only half of those with Cystic Fibrosis are likely to live past their late 30s, but a baby born today can expect to live longer. We seek to continually improve standards of care for people with CF; we commission cutting-edge clinical and scientific research; and provide practical and accurate information to people with CF and their families. None of this would be possible without the support of the CF community and the generosity of the public.

We, Feargal, Dave and Phil, are riding from King's College Chapel, Cambridge to the Royal Palace in Oslo in aid of Cystic Fibrosis, and only 1,200 miles stand in our way! The ride will begin at the Chapel on 21st August and end at the Grand Palace on the 4th September and we will be cycling around 80 miles a day. 

We decided to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust having sung and lived with our friend Alex Stobbs, who suffers from the disease. We believe that the CFT is a truely worthy cause since it is the only UK-wide charity that promotes excellence in research and clinical care, and provides practical advice and support to people with cystic fibrosis and their families.

If that wasn't motivation enough, as we're all choral scholars in King's College Choir we promise to sing a concert for the largest donor. Follow our progress through videos and pictures here, via our twitter account @Kingsonbikes, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/606696112680942/ or on our blog - kingsonbikes.tumblr.com

We are extremely grateful to Cantab Capital Partners who have kindly sponsored our trip, SMWLAW who has sponsored our bikes, and Dan and Bryony who'll be driving a support car and documenting the journey.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
