Wayne’s wheelie tough bike ride

Next month, Wayne Prigg from Newmarket will be taking on a gruelling 100 mile bike ride, all in the name of charity.

Wayne, who works as an emergency medical technician, will be cycling the London to Surrey 100 on Friday, 30th July in aid of ‘Living with Reflux’; a charity that supports families with children who have Gastro-oesophageal Reflux (GOR) and Reflux disease (GORD).

He said: “The charity is poignant as my niece, who is now nine, has been in and out of hospital since she was three, suffering from severe GORD. She has been rushed into hospital by ambulance with severe sepsis markers many times. This has obviously affected her home life and her schooling.

“The charity has helped my niece, her family as well as many other families and I wanted to give something back to their fantastic work.

“Training has been going well. I completed the Boudicca 100 on the 21st May and I will be doing the Norwich 50 (just a short one!) on the 4th June.”

The 100 mile bike ride will see Wayne start at the Olympic Park, and cycle around Surrey and the numerous hills, finishing at the Mall.

The rides for the charity are especially touching, as throughout June, families of children who have GOR and GORD will come together to raise awareness of the conditions. To learn more about both visit http://www.livingwithreflux.org.

For all of us, good luck Wayne!
