Gary Completed the Prologis 100 Cycle Challenge 2019 for Mind charity
Two years after taking on a London to Paris Cycle challenge, Gary Kirk, Sales Director of the SEC Storage Systems Division got back in the saddle and completed the Prologis 100 Cycle Challenge 2019 in aid of the mental health charity, Mind.
On 12th September Gary Kirk took on the Prologis 100 Cycle Challenge, as it celebrates a decade of fundraising for charities including LandAid. Over the last 9 years, the event has raised £264,000. The challenge takes in a route through the Malvern Hills and includes 1,000ft more climbing than previous years, so is set to test stamina and endurance.
Gary challenged himself with the 100-mile one day route, and has personally raised over £600 for Mind, the mental health charity, after setting a fundraising target of £500.
"It has been two years since I did the London to Paris cycle challenge, and it was about time I got back in the saddle" commented Gary Kirk.
"I haven't really rode seriously for the last 2 years. And for comparison, the longest day for the London to Paris was 85 miles, with a maximum 56 mile training ride in the build up. So the Prologis 100 was a real challenge!
"Mental health is really important to me, my family and the logistics industry as a whole, so I'm overwhelmed that I raised 125% of my £500 target! It certainly helped me get round the 100-mile which I felt was a real challenge!" added Gary.
