This weekend will see all those who have signed up, make the bike ride from the UK to Amsterdam to raise money and awareness of Prostate Cancer.
On June the 9th until June the 11th, Port Vale will be represented by members of the Foundation Trust.
Kev Sanders: Project Manager, Callum Rollings: Community lead coach and Zach Siwiec, Apprentice coach, have finished their preparation for the gruelling 148-mile cycle from Bransley’s Oakwell Stadium to the Amsterdam Arena.
Football to Amsterdam is Prostate Cancer UK and the EFL’s annual pedal-pilgrimage which spans two nights and three days (two days cycling). The Foundation Trust will ride alongside footballing legends and like-minded fans in a bid to get fit and raise vital funds for a great cause.
There are two start points, one in London and one in Barnsley where a sea of club colours will ride together through the English countryside to Harwich and Hull respectively. Once in Holland the two routes will converge with cyclists united in their Prostate Cancer UK cycling jerseys.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just 1 in 4.
Kev Sanders expressed “We as a Foundation are delighted to be supporting Men United and Prostate Cancer and over the next few days.
“For the first time in a number of years Port Vale will be represented on the F2A challenge and although it will be a massive challenge for the 3 of us, some of us haven’t been on a bike in years, we are really looking forward getting into the training and raising some money."
All donations will be humbly received and would help our team push all the way to Amsterdam whilst helping to put an end to Prostate Cancer once and for all! Secondly if any of our loyal fans would be kind enough to sponsor the trio and help then raise the £3,000 target then please visit www.justgiving.com/vale2amsterdam
