A Seaton Sluice youngster, Callum Brown, is suffering from cerebral palsy. He is just eight years old and cannot walk on his own. According to doctor’s advice, a life-changing surgery that would charge £70,000 can only treat him and enable him to walk without any help. Due to poor living of the family, parents of this boy have decided to raise funds for this purpose the Charity Way.
On Sunday, a mammoth ride took place in which 14 plucky cyclists participated. They covered 200 miles from Edinburgh to Newcastle in just 17 hours. There were injuries and minor accidents but in wish to raise maximum funds; none of the cyclists lost his determination for completing the ride on time. This fundraiser ride was named as Reason to Ride.
Besides, another event named Callum’s Wish To Walk was conducted yesterday that was supported by the Angels of the North.
Till now the revenue raised is just short of £50,000. This ride was organized by GB triathlete Joanna Reed. As told by her, “I was so proud of all the cyclists for finishing the ride and sticking together, everyone got on so well”. This walk begun at 4am from Edinburgh and it finished at Newcastle around 9 pm.
