CEDIA will be hosting a charity cycle ride on Saturday 16 September to remember five colleagues the industry lost over the past two years.
Suzanne Collin, Carmen Greenway, Bob Hobson, Alan Roser and Peter Lawn are greatly missed by many within the industry and this event will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate the lives of these close friends while raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
“We work in a very close industry, where colleagues come friends,” says CEDIA managing director Matt Nimmons.
“We were all extremely saddened by the loss of Suzanne, Carmen, Bob, Alan and Peter. We wanted to find a way to remember our friends and knowing that there are many keen cyclists in our industry, we thought a cycling sportive would be a nice way of doing so.”
The charity cycle will be held at Grafham Water Park in Huntingdon with two separate routes – an 80km cycle event for more seasoned cyclists and a 15km fun ride for anyone wanting to join in on the fun. A little get together post cycle will also be held so that participants can share stories of their adventures during the day.
Tickets sold will be the main way to raise money for the event. Entry into the 80km ride will be around $A85 (£50) which will also include a jersey to go along with the event while fun riders will only pay $A10.
For those that wish to get involved in the charity but unable to attend the event, CEDIA has set up a JustGiving page where any money can be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. The JustGiving page can be viewed here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cedia-emea
