Our Crawley Sales Manager, Mario Kalucki, took part in the London to Brighton Bike ride on Saturday 24th September 2016 in order to raise money to help treat his seriously ill cousin.
Mario’s cousin was sadly diagnosed with a stage IV brain tumour earlier this year, so Mario made the decision to make this ride in order to raise as much money he could to assist with her treatment. Mario set up a crowdfunding page on JustGiving.com with a heartfelt plea for help..
Mario underwent a grueling training regime lasting months, and with the help of friends and family, the donations started coming in.
Mario managed to complete the ride in just under 10 hours. When asked about his experience, Mario said “It was very difficult, over 9 hours on the bike, but so worthwhile, I’m already looking for another challenge though, maybe London to Paris!!”
As a family run business Unbeatablecar wholeheartedly supported Mario in his fundraising efforts, and will continue to do so with any future events he has planned.
“To see my cousin make a full recovery would be absolutely fantastic, the whole family are doing everything they can to raise the funds for her specialist treatment. Therefore I am challenging myself to ride the London to Brighton off-road course, which is a grueling 75 miles of steep forest inclines, tricky technical descents and single track rocky paths. If you could find it in your hearts to kindly donate for this worthy cause, anything that you can afford, your donation will be making such a huge impact on the lives of my family and I.”
