Three British doctors are swapping out their scrubs for cycling shorts and pedaling across France to raise money for the Help For Heroes charity. Jeremy Collyer, Ken Sneddon and Paul Norris, all from Queen Victoria Hospital in England, are participating in the fundraiser to help injured British service men and women get the proper care they need.
The three cyclists who are trading in their every day routine for a once in a lifetime ride starting at Headley Court near Epsom, UK on June 15. Seven days and 640 miles later, the undoubtedly exhausted doctors will find themselves at the end of their ride in Nice, France. To learn more and to track their progress, check out their ride website.
The event is part of a longstanding tradition of outreach and aid that can be traced back to Sir Archibald McIndoe of Queen Victoria Hospital. During World War II, Sir Archibald McIndoe worked hard to provide plastic surgery for those injured in combat.
Swapping for such an honorable cause always makes our hearts warm!
