Levenes Partner Rides for the Spinal Injuries Association
Tim joined a large group of riders including 3 hand bike riders who themselves have suffered spinal cord injury.
The ride started and finished in Pisa passing through the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Tim’s fundraising target was £1,500 which he is on course to beat and the SIA estimate that the trip will raise £80,000 overall.
The SIA do crucial work with people who are often lost and bewildered as they try to come to terms with spinal cord injury. They fund a number of liaison officers who visit clients in hospital to provide support just when it is needed most. The key message from the SIA, is that there is life after spinal cord injury.
The riders were blessed with fabulous weather during their 3 day ride although the trip did not pass off without incident.
On the last day, just 6 miles from the finish, Tim touched wheels with another rider and fell in to a ditch, suffering cuts and bruises and a sore shoulder.
Commenting on the ride Tim said “I work with clients with spinal cord injury who have claims for injuries, many of whom have received vital help and assistance from the SIA. They are there for anybody with a spinal cord injury whether they have a claim or not. I wanted to do this ride to help raise awareness and give something back. I was not expecting to literally give blood for the cause, but having done so, I hope that donors will be generous and dig deep to support the work of this fabulous charity”.
