[p][b]EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS AND TAKE ON OUR CYCLE CHALLENGE [/b][/p][p]Please help us raise money for Children’s Hospice South West. This is a charity very close to our hearts. Our beautiful daughter, Sophie, has a rare life limiting condition called CDKL5. Developmentally she is significantly delayed and cannot talk or even sit unsupported. She suffers daily seizures. Caring for her is exhausting and the hospice provides our family with much needed respite and emotional support.[/p][p][b]OUR CHALLENGE [/b][/p][p]For the past two years we have participated in the RIde for Precious Lives. This is a 205mile cycle covering three ( hilly counties) and stopping at the three Children’s Hospice’s in the South West. We need to raise £4K in sponsorship and need your help.[/p][p][b]YOUR CHALLENGE [/b][/p][p]We want to get the Nation cycling!
