Through the month of September Riverside Recruitment launched our 500 Mile Challenge in association with Snap Fitness Carlisle to help Trucker Gerry raise money for Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Gerry joined Riverside as a HGV driver back in 2014, and after being diagnosed with cancer fourteen years ago he has been an inspirational character in his pledge to raise money towards cancer research. Gerry has taken part in multiple events across the UK, including a skydive and half marathon with our own Kayleigh Scott, raising awareness and thousands in donations for cancer charities.
To support Gerry, Riverside Recruitment staff and volunteers have cycled 500 miles in aid of both Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Support.
What an amazing experience it has been and a fantastic achievement from everyone in the office, family members, friends and members of the public.
We would like to thank everyone who has donated miles on the bike and an even bigger thank-you to all of you that have donated to Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.
We wouldn't have been able to do this without the help of Snap Fitness Carlisle for lending us the bike and none of this would have been possible without the amazing Trucker Gerry!
A final count up of the donations is to follow but you can still donate at www.truckergerry.uk or pop down to our office.
Thank-you again everyone for your outstanding support!
