Cyclists to raise cash for children’s charity

Have your say

Cyclists are being urged to sign up for a charity ride.

The Peak District 100 challenge gives riders a choice of three routes – 47, 75 and 100 miles – and takes them from Dore through the Peak District.

It is aimed at raising cash for Action Medical Research, which funds research into conditions affecting babies and children.

The charity was founded in 1952 and is currently supporting work around Down’s Syndrome, epilepsy, sickle cell disease and diabetes.

The charity is funding a number of research projects in Yorkshire, with Sheffield Children’s Hospital involved in a study looking at improving diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea in children with Down’s Syndrome.
