London to Paris 2008 Fundraising

Riding from London to Paris I didn't think was going to be too taxing, but the fundraising for Action Medical Research was going to be a chore and as a consequence I've been putting it off.  With only a month to go before half the minimum funds had to raised I decided to get started.  Firstly I established an online sponsorship page on Action Medical Research's website, that was easy - I then crafted an email to all my work colleagues who I've worked with over the past 10 years. To my amazement the number of people I've worked with was quite astonishing. Within 3 days after my email I raised £600; amazing. The generosity of people choked me. More money to raise but at least I've made a good start.
