I’m cycling 250 miles from London to Paris for Tree of Hope because I want to help my friend’s nephew to walk.
I have been friends with Paul Pantry (Tall Paul) since I was 16; so when he told me he needed to raise funds for his nephew so that he go to America for a life changing operation to enable him to walk, I knew I had to help.
Johnny is 5 years old and has cerebral palsy, which means without his parents’ help he can’t stand up, walk, get dressed or do the other things 5 year old boys can.
The operation we’re raising funds for is called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) which is a neurological procedure that will hopefully allow Johnny the freedom of movement he deserves.
The cycle is in July and training has started. All we need now is your support.
