Trauma Survivors Day May 17 - Join the Cyclethon at Royal London Hospital

Last May, over 80 folk hopped on static bikes  in the Royal London Hospital foyer last May and rode furiously over 12 hours to mark Trauma Survivors Day.  It’s happening all over again this year on Wednesday May 17!

The main objectives of the day as are to raise awareness of the incidence of trauma, shine a light on civilian trauma survivors, and also  to celebrate the successes of the RLH trauma team.  There is also a Barts Charity trauma appeal fundraising option for those who would like to raise money for research into trauma care improvements.

Barts Charity are the organisers, and people can register to participate here.   Once you’ve registered, a Charity rep will be in touch to organise your cycle times and allocate you to the cycle team you’d like to be part of.  

The trauma survivors team is called Rode2Recovery and led by the amazing Michael Russell who rode from the Royal London Hospital to Paris last year for a fundraiser - that's a very long way!

Once again, there will be Trauma Survivor Day T-shirts for participants and the Charity are also organising some prizes. 

If you’re not up for the cycling bit, but would still like to participate, there will be a baked goods stall again if you’d like to contribute cakes or other goodies. Please register anyway!


Happy cycling and baking!
