My story

[vmgvideo class="ql-video" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LYW94-n27Lo?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]My name is Luke. I am 25 years old. In June of 2018 I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. The cancer is still here – I’m here too. On 1 January 2020, I began cycling from Bristol, UK to Beijing, China on a tandem bicycle ([url=https://bristol2beijing.org/home-page/the-expedition/]see my route[/url]). I've named the tandem "Chris" in honor of my late brother, John Christopher Grenfell-Shaw, to whom my ride is dedicated. He will be joining me every step of the way ([url=https://bristol2beijing.org/the-unseen-joiner/]read more[/url]).[/p][p]The aims of this trip are simple but ambitious: to inspire CanLivers* to proactively seek out opportunities to live richly and fully; to maximise their chances of longevity and happiness through exercise and diet; and to create a dynamic, lasting movement in how we approach cancer. This is a message that applies to anyone facing challenges, anyone living.[/p][p]A key aspect of driving this change is supporting groups who already are working towards similar goals. Therefore the ride initially aims to raise £23,000 – £1 for every kilometre cycled – to be shared equally between [url=http://www.5kyourway.org/]5K Your Way[/url] and [url=http://www.trekstock.com/]Trekstock[/url], charities which help empower CanLivers through exercise, alongside the [url=http://www.teenagecancertrust.org/]Teenage Cancer Trust[/url] and [url=http://www.clicsargent.org.uk/]ClicSargent[/url], which both did so much to support me throughout treatment. After this first fundraising milestone is reached, I will announce updated fundraising goals to achieve various goals in support of the CanLive movement, including supporting like-minded organisations I encounter during the expedition.[/p][p]I invite you to help us reach our initial target of £23,000. My deepest gratitude to the hundreds of donors who have helped us get so far already![/p][p]To find out more and follow my journey, please visit my [url=https://bristol2beijing.org/]website[/url], [url=https://www.facebook.com/bristol2beijing/?modal=admin_todo_tour]Facebook[/url], [url=http://www.instagram.com/bristol2beijing/]Instagram[/url], or [url=https://m.weibo.cn/u/7346464558]Weibo[/url] pages.[/p][p]*CanLiver = someone living with cancer: facing the uncertainty and challenge of cancer on a daily basis, yet we can live with cancer - richly and fully.[/p]

Hey Luke.. I hope the journey is going well and the weather is being kind to you. I'm a road cyclist but I tend to hibernate on Zwift through the winter months, so you are truly inspirational! Good luck with your amazing challenge. Best wishes, Hannah x
