THE DETERMINED managing director of property developer and consultancy Grasscroft Property will be participating in the 970-mile Ride Across Britain in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
Mike Coulter has so far raised £1,975 through his Just Giving page to help fund ground-breaking research and treatments to fight prostate cancer, which affects 1 in 8 men in the UK.
The ‘End to End’ – beginning at Land’s End and finishing at John O’Groats – has been running since 2010 and will see participants cycle through 23 counties in just nine days.
To prepare for the challenge, Mike has received training from Helen Scott, a World and Commonwealth Champion competing in Rio 2016 Paralympics.
He has also been supported by his local club, the East Lancashire Road Club.
Mike Coulter, Managing Director at Grasscroft Property, said: “In the past 18 months five people who I know well have been diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer.
“As a cycling enthusiast, I couldn’t turn down such a fantastic opportunity to set a personal challenge while simultaneously raising money for a very important and worthy cause.”
