A 4000 mile cycle ride will be
held on 15th – 20th April 2013 to help raise money for Sikusi,
which is a school in Uganda, Ty Hafan Children's Hospice and Breast Cancer
The event, which will be held at Maesybryn Primary School, Llantwit Fardre,
will include 6-year-old Dylan Beard and his school mates participating in a
4000 mile-equivalent relay cycle.
The event has been organised by Dylan Beard after he was
diagnosed with a condition called hypopituitarism. This condition means that
Dylan's pituitary gland, and other glands, do not work. His diagnosis has
motivated him to do something that he loves (cycle) on a big scale in order to
raise money for campaigns close to his heart.
Dylan said: "For Christmas my dad
bought me a race bike and a turbo trainer. I love to cycle and do it as often
as I can to help with my condition. Since having my bike I have thought of an
idea to raise money for charity. I am going to ride my bike to Uganda, well on
my turbo trainer! I have looked on the internet and found out it is 4000 miles.
I have asked my friends at school, Olympic Gold Medalist, Nicole Cook, and
Wales Rugby Captain, Sam Warburton to help me. It will take us 5 days to
complete the 4000 miles. The money we raise will be split between the three
campaigns; the money that we raise
for the school will give them electricity so that they can have heating and
Dylan is still awaiting reply
from Sam Warburton and Nicole Cook, but hopes that they will be able to support
him in this wonderful event.
