Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page.To celebrate the Tour de France starting in Yorkshire in 2014 we decided to ride the two Yorkshire stages back to back as the professionals will in July. Stage 1 is 118 miles and stage 2 is 124 miles, not only is this two huge distances on consecutive days but we will have to contend with the fabulous hills en route![/p] [p]As this is going to be a huge challenge we decided to combine this with fundraising for the Huntington's Disease Association (HDA) and awareness raising of Huntington's Disease which is not as well known as other [lt]span class="st"[gt]neurodegenerative genetic disorders.[lt]/span[gt][/p] [p][lt]span class="st"[gt]The HDA provide support for families affected by Huntington's Disease throughout the UK and some of the money raised here will help their valuable work, see www.hda.org.uk for more information. The rest of the money will go towards the West Yorkshire branch of the HDA which provides support for families locally as well as organising local events for branch members (www.hdawestyorks.org.uk).[lt]/span[gt][/p] [p][lt]span class="st"[gt]If you are able to donate then that would be great and very much appreciated. If you are unable to donate then please forward this page to friends and family as awareness raising is just as important as fundraising.[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][lt]span class="st"[gt]Team members confirmed so far are:[lt]/span[gt][/p][ul][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]Mark Armitage[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]Pete Wajdner[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]Denver Slowther[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]Dick Vincent[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]Neil Fursey[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][li][lt]span class="st"[gt]David Joseph[lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/li][/ul] [p][lt]span class="st"[gt]Thanks for your support and we look forward to updating this with further news nearer the time and as we complete the challenge![lt]br /[gt][lt]/span[gt][/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
