June 21: Get on your bike for prostate cancer
10/06/15 13:47 Filed in: Events
The Rotary Club of Kintore, along with all rotary clubs the UK are involved in a huge fundraising effort to fight prostate cancer. The local event in our area is Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, based in the Kellands Park, Inverurie.
Kenny Thomson of Kintore Rotary says: “By coincidence, the date chosen for this national 'bike ride' event just happens to also be the date of the Great Inverurie Bike Ride, so another definite link there which will be to the fundraising event’s advantage”.
So the message is ‘ Get on your bike for prostate cancer’ on Sunday, June 21 and head to Kellands Park, Inverurie for 11.30 am.
This is the information we have received from the Rotary Club of Kintore:Get on your bike for prostate cancer
We invite you to don your Lycra and get on your bike for prostate cancer or better still, make it a team effort involving family, friends or work colleagues.
Rotary Ride is a national initiative taking place on Father’s Day (21st June) in which Rotary clubs across Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) will be hosting a range of cycle events for all ages and abilities.
RIBI is inviting members of the public, just like you, to join one of your local Rotary clubs at their event and get pedalling to raise money for prostate cancer, a disease which affects so many families across the UK and Ireland (see ride.rotarygbi.org)
What is happening in the Garioch?
The Rotary Clubs of Inverurie, Kintore and Oldmeldrum have teamed up with Aberdeenshire Council to provide a day of cycling fun for all the family at Kellands Park, Inverurie:
• Static Cycling - a local Rotarian will ride Inverurie’s leg of the Land’s End to John O Groats (LEJOG) route. Try guessing how long it will take him. RIBI is hoping that all the Rotary Clubs in the UK will cover the full distance of LEJOG in 24hours.
• Competitions - have a go on a spinning bike and see if you can win a prize.
• Try the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to win some cycling goodies.
The Great Inverurie Bike Ride (GIBR) takes place on the same day, so why not ride the GIBR to raise money for Prostate Scotland. You can purchase commemorative cycling tops and T-shirts and obtain sponsor forms directly from Prostate Scotland (www.prostatescotland.org.uk).
