Neil Harvey‘s team take on a Tour de Force Cycle Challenge

Neil Harvey‘s team take on a Tour de Force Cycle Challenge


Thu 24 July

The Tour de Force team have raised over £11,000 on their 10 day cycle challenge from Baildon to Bussiere-Badil in the Dordogne, France, cycling 1200kms in memory of Sam Harvey.
Neil’s team of 5 left Baildon on 24/5 to start their 10 day Tour de Force cycle challenge, that would see them cycling through England, Belgium and France in memory of Neil’s son, Sam.

The team consisted of Neil Harvey (Met Consultancy Group), Allan Booth (Rance Booth Smith Architects and BTRS Charity of the Year), Cat Binstead (Sam's sister, Switch Thinking Ltd), Simon Chappell (Met Geo Environmental Ltd) and Stuart Humphris (a college friend).  Truus van der Wurf met the team in Zeebrugge for the ride down through Belgium and France.  

The team raised money through their Just Giving page and so far they have raised over £11,300 which is fantastic.  Sam died 2 years ago because of a particularly aggressive brain tumour and he set the ball rolling with his first Just Giving site  to help raise funds for the charities that had helped him.  His family said they would continue with his wishes to help fund research and support and hence this site supporting BTRS.

Read more about their journey on the Just Giving page and on their Facebook page which has some great photos.  Thank you to everyone on the team and all the behind the team supporters for making this challenge possible.  Thank you also to everyone who has donated – please do watch the amazing YouTube video of this incredible event.

Neil said “Sam would have been so pleased with your support for the charity and a cause that we talked about many times, in the hope that improved treatments and even prevention or eradication of brain tumours may result from research carried out here in West Yorkshire.”
