Cycling to help five great charitable causes, our friend and Mondelez Community Champion Michael Huggins will be cycling from Villa Park this Sunday 26th May finishing at Wemley stadium on Monday 27th May.
Whether your an Aston Villa Football Club fan or not, you've got to admit this cycle is definetely challenging and he definately deserves some support?! Well we at Cerebral Palsy Midlands definately think so.
Michael is cycling to raise awareness support and fundraise for his five top nominated charities this year;
Acorns Children’s Hospice
Macmillan Cancer Research
Michael had made the commitment before their last played match that if Aston Villa FC won West Bromwich Albion he was going to set off for an ambitious cycle to Wembley Stadium for the Aston Villa play off final. AND they did win 1-0 securing their place in the finals and leaving Michael with a huge challenge ahead!
The journey has been split in to two parts to ensure his arrival for the start of the match, Sunday, Michael will cycle to Milton Keynes (70 miles), stay over for the night and then cycle to Wembley Stadium (50 miles) on Bank Holiday Monday.
To follow his progress Michael said;
"The best way to follow my progress will be on Twitter @michaelah1874 but I must warn you in advance that on Sunday you will most likely see photos of me stopping in coffee shops along the route tucking into a carrot cake than me banging out the miles😂
On Monday if I have not put on too much weight I will be pushing the speed a bit more as I hope to arrive on Wembley Way between 11am and 12pm."
