Inspired by the tragic loss of his baby son, a Boxford father is looking to take on two 100-mile bike rides this summer in aid of children’s charity Action Medical Research.
Self-confessed cycling addict Chris Dormady will be joined by his partner Samantha Segger for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 on July 31, and Action Medical Research’s Essex 100 ride on September 4.
The couple are raising funds for the UK-wide children’s charity in memory of Charley, who was born in 2007 with a very rare genetic condition, Mosaic Trisomy 13, which causes severe intellectual disability and physical abnormalities in many parts of the body.
Charley died at just 16 weeks old as a result of complex heart problems.
Chris and Sam have already raised more than £650 after scaling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon in June along with Steve Hadley, Roger Cox, Colin Newman, Shane Chilvers, Ian Todd and Sam Nicole.
