The countdown is on to the ‘Tour de Football’

Posted by Ashley Byrne on June 6th, 2019

Kerry Crooks from Leyland is on countdown to her gruelling 140 mile bike ride around 8 Lancashire Football Stadiums.

On 30 June, Kerry will complete the challenging event to raise money for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation in memory of her father. Starting at Preston North End, Kerry will cycle to Blackburn Rovers F.C, Burnley F.C, Accrington Stanley, A.F.C Fylde, Blackpool F.C, Fleetwood Town F.C and Morecambe F.C, before returning to Preston North End’s stadium.

This week, Kerry popped into our office for a stop off during her training session to share her progress with the team. She is building up the distance she cycles every training session and is well on target to achieve her milestone. With less than a month to go the pressure is really on but Kerry is determined to keep pushing until the day.

Kerry said “As the distance increases it is getting harder, but I am determined to complete the 140 miles. The help and support I have received off everyone is really motivating me, and I have been completely overwhelmed by their generosity”
