A dentist from Cirencester is taking on a marathon fundraising challenge to raise much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Care and support people affected by breast cancer.
Dr Ross Cutts, 36, of Cirencester Dental Practice, aims to raise £18,000 by competing in 18 challenging sporting events over 18 months (with a target of raising £1000 per event).
He said: 'Breast cancer is a scourge of the modern day with many families tragically affected by it. My family and friends seems to have been surrounded by it of late – some with tragic consequences. I have spent all of my working life talking to patients and have often listened to stories of inspiration that humbled me, but I have never felt compelled to act upon it. Until now!'
With his first two challenges – the 60-mile Blenheim Cycle Ribbonride and a 100k Nightrider Cycle – already under his belt he is now setting his sights on the next two – the British 10k London Run in July and the Cotswold Triathlon in September.
Ross is also one of the 30 bike riders taking part in the Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2013 taking place on 19-24 September 2013, starting at the Straumann headquarters in Basel, Switzerland and finishing at the Head Office of Straumann UK in Crawley, West Sussex – a mere 600 miles in six days!
