Oxted cyclist takes on Ride London 100 for Sight for Surrey!
Sight for Surrey support over 7000 people who are blind or partially sighted, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing.
Chris Zahner is taking part in the Prudential Ride London 100 to raise funds for the charity as Chris’s daughter Chloe has a visual impairment and has had direct help from the charity.
Chris says “Our daughter, Chloe, has problems with her eyesight to the point where she is considered partially blind/visually impaired. What you may not know is the incredible support we as a family have received from the charity, Sight for Surrey, who have been a guiding hand throughout Chloe’s life and who have also provided so many incredible opportunities Chloe might not otherwise have had.
Sight for Surrey really is a charity very close to our hearts and which is why I am undertaking the challenge of riding 100 miles in the Ride London 2019 event to raise much needed funds for this amazing charity.
Although I like to commute by bike to and from work from time to time (each way is around 10 to 15 miles, depending on the route I take), I rarely take the time to go for longer bike rides these days so I will be committing to a tough training regime in an effort to ensure I can make it 100 miles on the day of the Ride London event. If you happen to be on the route of the event on the day, please give me a shout of support, I’m going to need it I suspect!
I would be very grateful for any donations, no matter how large or small as every pound will count, and thank you in anticipation of your generosity. Both I and Sight for Surrey would really appreciate your generous support.”
Chris also took part in a great interview with SUSY radio recently and was their ‘hero of the week’.
