People don’t realise how serious asthma is.
We need all the help we can get and there are so many children out there that die completely
unnecessarily. I’m cycling for Asthma UK for two reasons. Firstly, my eldest daughter,
Neve, suffers with severe asthma, and Asthma UK have been a great support in getting treatment
for her. But secondly, my elder sister, Suzanne, died at the age of 28 from an asthma attack
so obviously its very important to me. I’m cycling for Asthma UK because I’ve had asthma
since I was 4 years old, so I’m hoping we can raise some money and try and beat this
thing. The camaraderie out on the road, people supporting each other, especially other cyclists
who are riding for Asthma UK. Support on the course was fantastic – going past the Asthma
UK cheerpoints, especially right at the end, the last one really cheered me up. They were
fantastic – big high fives! What’s stopping you? An event like this is more fun than you
can imagine so get on board and do it quickly. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness of
it, and let people see just how important a cause this is. Just get out there and do
it. It’s a fantastic charity, it’s a really serious illness, and research needs to be
done to find a cure. We can beat it if everyone comes together and tries to do something about
it. I’d love asthma to stop killing people, frankly.
