Pedals Power Cancer Research

On 17 August, two heroes arrived at the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology by bike after a journey of 850 miles.

Sue Duncombe and Patrick McGuire arrived bearing £6000 of funding which they raised by cycling 850 miles from the CRUK Cambridge Research Institute to the Oxford Institute via the CRUK Manchester Institute.  On the way they called in at a staggering 98 CRUK high street shops.

For the last mile of their journey they were met by researchers and students from the Oxford Institute who rode with them as a guard of honour.

Sue and Patrick were inspired to undertake the marathon two week pedal after they both lost their partners to cancer.  They have been raising money regularly and have run marathons, cycled the length of Britain and even climbed Kilimanjaro.

Thank you Sue and Patrick for your support and inspiration.
