The sponsored ride will be ridden by ten people who’re in recovery and will raise money to further the work of Aquarius and other organisations in the Midlands to promote recovery from addiction.
The ‘Tour De Recovery’ will set off from Leamington Spa on the 7th of September and arrive 5 days and 300 grueling miles later in Durham on the 12th of September.
Annette Fleming, chief executive of Aquarius, said:
“Cycling 300 miles in 5 days? Who would want to do this? Well, this is the ambition of the Tireless Ten from the Coventry Recovery Community who want to show the world that people in recovery are strong , proud and can achieve great things.
“It reminds us all that the work we do is not just about monitoring waiting times and counting treatment completions – it is all about helping people find a good life , a life that is meaningful and allows people to flourish and be active citizens.
And the work going on in Coventry shows that this is possible. We’re delighted to support this event and I’ll be watching the daily blogs and intend to meet up with them on the way to cheer them on.”
