Cancer Research UK fundraising: Hudson RPO up for the challenge

Join us on a thrilling charity challenge! The event will benefit Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK fundraising is a mere cycle/swim/hike away!

This June, a team of colleagues from Hudson RPO will swim lakes, climb Helwellyn mountain, and cycle through fresh air and beautiful scenery.

It promises to be a thrilling outdoor challenge. Supported by Hudson RPO, funds raised from the event will benefit the charity Cancer Research UK.

The event is spearheaded by RPO operations manager Jared Massey.

Jared is organising the event in memory of a very close friend, Andy King, who died recently.

Do you want to join us on in our pursuit of outdoor excellence? You’re warmly invited. Read on to learn more, or support the Hudson RPO / Cancer Research UK fundraising here.

  • Friday and Saturday will be spent cycling from Edinburgh to the Lake District.

Did you know Hellvelyn is the third biggest mountain in the UK? Imagine the satisfaction of succeeding in this personal challenge, with friends and colleagues at your side.

We aim to support all abilities and encourage everyone to discover the satisfaction of meeting a personal challenge.

All of this will be in the company of friends, including members of Andy’s family who are keen to support us in this initiative.

Of course, you don’t have to participate in the whole event. You can just select a single stage: cycling, swimming, or hiking.

All parts of the challenge are hard, but not painfully tough. The idea is to take your time, have some fun, and enjoy the experience.

The challenge is designed to suit all fitness levels.

Jared said: “Thank you, all. I cannot tell you how difficult it has been recently, like it is for anyone who loses someone close. But hand on heart, working with such great people and a great company has helped me enormously.
