Ray Evans took part in the 2014 London to Paris cycle challenge in memory of his wife June who was cared for at the Liverpool Marie Curie hospice. Ray now tirelessly fundraisers for the Liverpool hospice and the work of his local Marie Curie nurses through collections, cycling and collection sponsorship. London to Paris was a special challenge for Ray as it was his 10th overseas cycle for Marie Curie. Ray has braved all conditions over the years from blazing heat in Cambodia to torrential rain storms in the U.S all whilst raising vital funds for the cause closest to his heart.
Despite over ten years of challenges, Ray's still not ready to hang up his cycling shorts and he's currently fundraising and training for his next overseas bike ride for Marie Curie!
