On Sunday 24th September 2017 two of the Directors from PD Financial Management; Mark Beddowes and Nick Ace joined the 700-strong team cycling the Velo Birmingham 2017 to raise funds in aid of Cure Leukaemia. The team joined 15,000 other cyclists and charity teams who were all there to do one thing… Make it to the finish line!
The riders began the challenging 100-mile cycle ride on Broad Street, Birmingham and on their journey passed through several counties including Staffordshire, Sandwell and Dudley and Worcestershire. Mark completed the course in a whistle-stopping time of 5 hours 10 minutes and 24 seconds with Nick not far behind him crossing the finish line in style in only 6 hours 29 minutes and 33 seconds.
PD Financial Management are avid supporters of the Charity Cure Leukaemia and every kj of effort expended was done so with strength and determination to raise money for this fantastic charity. In further support of the cycling team PD Financial Management were proud sponsors of the Cure Leukaemia team cycling jersey.
Although a date is yet to be confirmed for 2018, one thing is for certain PD Financial Management look forward to supporting the event again, joining hundreds of other cyclists in raising funds for Blood cancer patients.
