Ruta Costa Verde 2016 Charity Cycle in recognition of Sarah Greene (former Blue Peter Presenter) and victim of Triple Negative Breast Cancer, is taking place in a little under 2 weeks!
The Sarah Greene Breakthrough Tribute Fund exists to help raise awareness and fund research for the disease. Little is known about the cancer, therefore limited treatment options are available; saying that, over the years the support gained from charity events has enabled scientists at Kings College to discover the behaviour of the disease, giving them a blurred, but useful insight to why it is so hard to treat.
Every 2 years, since 2008 a small group of Sarah Greene's friends and family have been proud organisers of charity events invented to raise mass awareness for Triple Negative Breast Cancer – a form of this disease sadly took her away from her family. With the help and advice from Breakthrough Breast Cancer, they are now about to embark on their 5th successful (the most successful) charity cycle, ‘Ruta Costa Verde’.
Beginning in beautiful Northern Spain, I wish I could say the route will be a breeze… BUUUUUT it won’t! Sand dunes to mountain summits; this will be a challenging, but accessible journey of discovery through the least known and most beautiful areas of Spain. The 3 day challenge will cover approximately 70-80 miles of steady climbs, descents and picture perfect views that’ll be worth the screaming pain your legs will be feeling.
