Team Active take on cycling challenge for Prostate Cancer UK

7-9 June 2019: A game of two halves

Prostate cancer kills 1 man every 45 minutes – that’s two men during one football match! To do their bit to reduce that number, 4 of the team at Active Chartered Financial Planners in Stockton are taking part in ‘Football to Amsterdam’; a gruelling cycling challenge covering 150 miles.

Active’s Andy Mitchell, who took on the same challenge last year, is joined by MD Karl Pemberton and Directors Paul Gibson and Karl Nendick for this year’s challenge.

The team will begin the journey on 7th June, kicking off the route at Barnsley Football Club.  They will cycle to Hull where they board an overnight ferry and enjoy some well earned rest before arriving in Rotterdam the next day.

Day two is a flat and scenic ride along the Dutch canal paths, with the event culminating at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruyff Arena.

Andy Mitchell comments “Last year’s trip was excellent! The scenery along the route was beautiful, and it’s such an excellent cause; prostate cancer could affect any man”

The team are hoping to raise £5000 for the charity, so if you would like to kindly support them, please click on the link here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/activecharteredfinancialplanners
