Ride Sheffield Wednesday into Europe

8 January 2015

The Official Charity Partner of The Football League, Prostate Cancer UK is providing Sheffield Wednesday supporters with a European footballing adventure.

The London to Amsterdam Challenge is calling on groups of friends to represent the Owls to join a star-studded peloton cycling from Leyton Orient FC to Dutch giants, Ajax.

International trio Luther Blissett, Terry Butcher and Matt Holland will line up at The Matchroom Stadium in east London in the early hours of Friday 12 June for the third annual challenge, aiming to raise more than £250,000 to help save men’s lives.

Prostate cancer kills one man every hour in the UK, and in 2014 riders from more than 50 clubs helped raise more than £200,000 to support the 250,000 men affected by the disease in the UK.

The 145-mile event includes a half-time pit-stop at Colchester United FC before the squad set sail from Harwich at the end of day one. The second day makes its way along the pristine pathways of the Netherlands culminating in a finale at the Amsterdam arena.

Not only will you and your mates have a great excuse to visit Amsterdam, you’ll be helping to beat prostate cancer.
