Footsteps dads smash Bike-a-thon target

Bike-a-thon 3 dads

On Saturday 21st March, Andy, Pete and Julian, all Footsteps’ Dads, set out on a challenge to cycle 155 miles on static bikes in the foyer of Sainsbury’s Heyford Hill supermarket in Oxford.

In just six hours, they were challenged to cycle one mile for every child that received physiotherapy at Footsteps in 2014. The Foundation funded intensive physiotherapy sessions for 90 of these children in 2014 and these dads wanted to show their support by cycling their hearts out in return for donations to the charity.

Between them, they cycled an incredible 201 miles in six hours, smashing the target. By the end of it, everyone was tired with aching legs but they finished with a sense of achievement and were grateful for the generous support of the public and the staff at Sainsbury’s. In total, the boys raised an amazing £625!  They did a fantastic job and certainly did us proud. Well done guys and thank you from us all at Footsteps!
