Sibling shows support with sponsored cycle

14 August 2012

When Harry's sister Emily was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Harry decided to show some sibling support and undertake a 20 mile sponsored cycle ride to raise money for JDRF. At the tender age of nine years old, Harry Watson from Ewell in Surrey has already been bitten by the fundraising bug.

Harry’s cycling challenge started at Ranmore in Surrey, and headed out along the famous ZIG ZAG route through Boxhill (which has recently been undertaken by the GB cyclist team) and finally finished back in Ewell. Harry finished his challenge in an impressive 2 hours and 40 minutes.

To add to the money raised from his sponsored cycle ride, Harry also organised stalls on his driveway at home, and held a bake sale and a 'guess the number of sweet in a jar' competition.

JDRF would like to say a big thank you to Harry for raising an impressive £539. He is a brother to be proud of, and we really appreciate Harry’s support.
