Together four intrepid volunteers will battle the elements, climb mountainous terrain and endure many long hours in the saddle before arriving at Conference Care’s Head Office in Coventry on Friday 18th September - some 400 exhausting miles later! Directors Chris Peacock and Andrew Deakin, with Pauline Beattie, Head of Sales Scotland and Sean Henderson, New Business Manager Scotland, will begin their quest on Monday 14th September from the Conference Care offices in Dunfermline, Scotland.
The venue finding and event management agency have always played an active part in raising funds for causes close to their hearts, having previously raised large sums of money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the RNLI and Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice to name a few.
Help4Harry is a charity that was set up by close personal friends of Pauline Beattie, to raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy on behalf of their son, Harry, who was diagnosed in 2013. The condition is rare, painful and life limiting, with the only treatment currently being a steroid program to help manage the disease. Conference Care’s huge cycling challenge will raise awareness of the condition with all monies raised going to Muscular Dystrophy UK, funding research into finding a cure.
‘The team have already started their training, we’re getting fit and having fun’ said Beattie. ‘Most importantly we’re raising funds to help those at the forefront of the research into treatments and hopefully one day, a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy - it’s going to be epic!’
