As in previous years we are asking riders to raise £50 — £100.
This year we are raising money for Brett Daughtrey.
When local cyclist Brett was involved in a freak accident whilst taking part in a 185 mile endurance event in Wales he called his wife Cat to tell her that he loved her as he feared that he may die ‘in the middle of nowhere’. Thanks to the Air Ambulance and the assistance of a passing motorist Brett’s life was saved but tragically only ten days later, whilst in hospital in Stoke, he lost his right leg above the knee due to complications and sepsis.
Typical of Brett’s positivity and healthy approach to life he was quickly in recovery mode and already thinking about how he could get back on his bike. Also typical of Brett he spent the next few months raising over £15,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
When the local cycling community heard that Brett needed a specially adapted prosthetic in order to get ‘back in the saddle’ they rallied round and raised over £8,000 at a charity auction evening. A GoFundMe page was also established in Brett’s name here.
BUT Brett is no ordinary cyclist. Brett is no ordinary human being and he has now set his sights of making the Paralympics in Paris 2024 (triathlon) for which he will need a specially adapted race prosthetic. Brett has already attended a British Triathlon talent day and test results were good enough to progress to the Paralympic Pathway for Paris 24.
In order to achieve his dream Brett needs more funding to support his training plan and, of course, the specific prosthetics and blades required for cycling and running.
Tickhill Velo Club would like to support Brett in achieving his goals.
All funds raised from the clubs annual charity ride to Scarborough and back in September will be donated to Brett’s fundraising efforts.
