Team Addicks were put through an intense spin class on Monday, May 21st as they continued preparations for their London to Amsterdam bike ride.
On June 1st, 31 members of club and Community Trust staff, ex-players and supporters will cycle 145 miles from London’s Olympic Park in Stratford to the Amsterdam Arena to raise vital funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.
The team have already raised more than £20,000 for the charity and are closing in on their sponsorship target of £22,000.
Charlton’s Player Liaison Officer Tracey Leaburn is one member of Team Addicks who will be cycling to the continent in June. She has thanked Addicks fans for the support they have shown so far and has asked them to provide the team with one last push.
“This was a good idea for us to all get together, some of us haven’t met before, and it was a real good fitness session,” she said.
“Charlton supporters have been fantastic. A few of our Team Addicks events alone have raised more than £9,000 and every penny that we raise goes directly to Prostate Cancer UK.
“Our ultimate aim is to try and find a cure for this disease and our part as Team Addicks is really important.”
