On Sunday 31 July, Ryan Adams is undertaking a huge challenge by taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 by cycling 100 miles to raise funds for Kicks Count in memory of his daughter Myla Grace. Ryan confessed that his first major outing riding 50 miles ended with facial injuries and a broken toe…oops!
Ryan told us why he was cycling for Kicks Count:
“In November 2013 we were blessed with a beautiful little girl, Myla Grace, who was born sleeping at 35 weeks due to a placental abruption. Though she never knew it, she touched the hearts of so many people and will always be dearly loved and missed. Being our first pregnancy it had a devastating effect on not only ourselves, but the entire family. Any efforts to raise awareness and offer support for parents should be applauded, and I’d love to help you in your efforts by doing a charity event in Myla’s name. We’ve since had a healthy happy little boy, Ellis, born in January 2015. He’s a cheeky chap with an infectious smile, and has certainly warranted the tag ‘rainbow baby’.”
Ryan has a target of £1,000 he wants to raise through this cycle. He is currently at £723, you can sponsor Ryan through his JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/Ryan-Adams7
THANK YOU to Ryan for undertaking this huge challenge for the charity, as well as all his family for supporting him during the training.
