This year’s annual Emma-Jayne Memorial Bikeathon, walk and country run events are taking place this Sunday (July 20).
Founders of the memorial fund Tony and Ruth Knowles, from Sutton on Sea, set up the organisation in memory of their daughter Emma-Jayne who died from a brain tumour just before her 23rd birthday.
This is the 15th year the annual event has been run, which takes place at the Royal Oak Inn, also known as ‘The Splash’ in Little Cawthorpe, just outside Louth.
The events consists of two cycle rides, one 12-mile route and a 30-mile ride. Plus they have the 3,5-mile fun walk and new to this year is the 10K Country Run. The bikeathon starts from 11am, with the walk closing following with an 11.15am start and then the country run will take place at 11.20am.
After all of your hard work from saddling up on your bikes or lacing up your running shoes or walking boots, why not stay on at The Splash where after the event, there will be a raffle, tombola and barbecue. All proceeds from the event as always is in aid of the Neurosurgical Unit, Ward 40 at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Virtual tours of both cycle rides are now available via the official memorial fund website: www.emma-jaynememorialfund.co.uk.
To date, the fund has raised in access over £130,000 and Tony and Ruth are hoping for another successful fundraising year.
