Team story

<p>Tim Roney, Karen and Chris Puddifoot began cycling around The World in June 2009 to raise money for the British Lung Foundation. &nbsp;</p> <p>Karen, Chris and Tim had taken time out of their education/work to cycle around the world to raise money for the British Lung Foundation (BLF) their aim was to cycle 12,000 miles.</p> <p>Why choose the BLF? In 2007 James Harrison, Tim&rsquo;s brother Simon&rsquo;s best friend, passed away as the result of a pulmonary embolism. James was obviously close to Tim but also a friend of Chris and Karen&rsquo;s through not only the Roney family but also from primary school days as all three of them attended Eastbury Farm School in Northwood. When Tim thought of the idea of a round the world bike ride for charity there was no decision to make, the British Lung Foundation would be the beneficiary in memory of James. Chris was equally keen on the idea and in late 2008 the two boys started building their bikes and planning the trip.</p> <p>Chris, Karen and Tim had completed the European leg of the journey covering 3000 miles; Karen and Tim had begun the Asian part of their journey with Chris to follow them in Perth, Australia in December 2009. Karen (27) and Tim (21) passed away on 24th September 2009 in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam when travelling around the world heritage site on a tourist boat which capsized. Following the passing of Karen, Chris&rsquo; sister, and Tim, his best friend, Chris remained at the family home in Northwood to support his parents and younger sister Catherine. On the 10th November 2009, Chris (22) passed away in a car accident.</p> <p>We will now continue their journey.</p> <p>In their memory, we are going to complete the cycle ride from Lands End to John O 'Groats in May 2011, this covers around 1,000 miles in 12 days.</p> <p>The willing participants thus far are me (Danny Greaves), Mark Pellowe, Simon Roney, and "the captain" Mike Puddifoot.&nbsp;</p> <p>We have begun training, and are currently completing 100 miles a week. This will increase over the next six months to the point where we are nearer 100 miles a day.</p> <p>Each of us has the mammoth task of raising &pound;3050, so please tell everyone and anyone who may want to contribute, however small an amount it may be.&nbsp;</p> <p>This challenge is another event amongst many that have already taken place over the last months endeavouring to continue the fund raising efforts of Tim, Karen &amp; Chris. All the details of events thus far can be seen on Karen's journey webpage at :-</p> <p>www.karensjourney.co.uk</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Thank you from all of us for your support.</p>
