Cuban Wheels – Action for Charity – Alexandria Charters

Blog on our efforts so far at http://cuban-wheels.blogspot.com/ and my just giving page is http://www.justgiving.com/Alexandria-Charters

My name is Alexandria Charters and I live in Ushaw Moor, County Durham I am a busy working mum with four young children. My godmother who lives in Carlisle and I have signed up with action for charity to raise money for three worthwhile charities in memory of my mum who I sadly lost just under 2 years ago to breast cancer. The three charities are breast cancer care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer and Ovarian Action registered charity number 268369. We both have a lot of training to do to ride 400km around Cuba in 5 days in October 2013, We both need to raise £2900 in sponsorship money to keep our places on the challenge and we are working on ideas and events to reach the target.

This is an ‘adventure’… a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip.. it will be a challenge and an amazing experience.. It will provide incredible memories and bring together two people from different generations with different life experiences on a journey together… because of one person they both loved – ‘Trudy’ … this trip will be our tribute to her, whilst at the same time raise funds to help others who sadly find themselves in a similar situation..

Alex and I will be partaking in a ‘Women v Cancer’ cycle ride – a mere 400km across Cuba. The funds raised will be divided equally between: Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.. some money will also be donated to help women fight cancer in Cuba….
