Supporter Spotlight: Sarah Tuppen
28 Jul 2017
Join us as we support Sarah, who is cycling 100 miles with her partner, Ian, to help raise vital funds for the Charity.
When: Sunday 30th July 2017
Where: London (to Surrey)
Inspiration: Sarah, along with her partner Ian, is riding for the National Osteoporosis Society in memory of her Grandma, who sadly passed away last year. 'Grandma Pat' was a long-time sufferer of osteoporosis, which has left Sarah determined to raise as much as possible to help the Charity provide vital care and support to other people like her Grandma, who are living with osteoporosis in the UK.
A bit of background: This is the most testing fundraising challenge that Sarah has taken on and six months ago, it all seemed incredibly daunting to her. After "numerous cold and wet training rides, countless cereal bars, and a series of exhausting spinning classes", she now says she feels ready and raring to tackle the 100-mile course, which will take her from London out into the hills of Surrey.
Sarah said: “During our fundraising, we discovered two things – firstly, that osteoporosis is something that impacts the lives of so many people, with numerous donors having first-hand experience of living with the condition and secondly, that the National Osteoporosis Society does so much great work to help and support those affected.”
Thanks to the amazing generosity of their friends, family and colleagues, Sarah and Ian have met and surpassed their fundraising target. We are so grateful for their hard work, commitment and determination and wish them the very best of luck in completing their challenge - we can’t wait to hear how they get on!
