On Sunday 21st September Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research saw 1,495 cyclists take part in the Birmingham Bikeathon. Riders chose the 26, 52 or 100 mile route, with the longest route seeing cyclists ride all the way to Chipping Camden in the Cotswolds and back to Centenary Square in Birmingham city centre, where they rode over the victorious finish line and received their medal!
Over the course of the afternoon JCI Birmingham members volunteered to help personally hand riders their medals, and see the achievement (and in some cases, relief!) on their faces, which was very rewarding. The Birmingham Bikeathon was a sporting event a part of the Charity’s large campaign ‘Small Change Big Impact’ which ran between the 13th and 21st September. 1,495 medals later, the JCI Birmingham team, along with other volunteers and staff of the charity, were really proud to have helped with supporting such a successful event and ‘played their part’ in the fight to help beat blood cancers.
