The Ti-Konki Challenge 2019 - Raising Funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research
The Ti-Konki Challenge involves cycling over 1,100 miles from London to Rome encouraging donations for Yorkshire Cancer Research. The challenge came from the trek Alan Roebuck and his 7 companions: David Senior, Douglas Blackhall, Harry Noble, Geoffrey Taylor, Ian Greaves, Glyn Webster and Brian Hutton made in their ex-army truck in 1954.
65 years on, our Director Andrew Roebuck and companion Paul Burluraux aim to follow the same route cycling from London to Rome in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research. Over a two-week period this October they will travel through Calais, Lyon, Cannes, Monte Carlo, Menton, Genoa, Pisa and finally arriving at their destination in Rome.
The goal is to raise £5,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research, a foundation close to our hearts which helps the people of Yorkshire avoid, survive and cope with cancer. They are the only charity dedicated to addressing specific cancer problems in Yorkshire by funding research projects right here in our region. Working to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in Yorkshire so that you, your family, friends and neighbours will have the very best chance of living a long and healthy life. It’s only by working in the heart of our communities that we will learn more about the problems that exist in Yorkshire and find solutions to tackle them.
