DEBRA CEO Ben Merrett takes on 440 Miles in 4 days!

DEBRA CEO Ben Merrett takes on 440 Miles in 4 days!

With 2018 being DEBRA’s 40th anniversary, our CEO Ben Merrett will be taking on a challenging cycle totalling 440 miles in just 4 days in memory of James Dunn who passed away earlier this year. James was at the forefront of the #FightEB campaign and inspired many.

“He was always upbeat, positively minded and was the bravest man I have ever met.  He was fearlessly determined to make the most of each and every day in spite of what he had to struggle with.  He did everything he could to help others who suffer like he did therefore I am cycling 440 Miles in 4 days for DEBRA to remember James”

Ben will start his journey in Bristol on Monday morning 11 June. The first leg will be a 90 mile ride through to Kenilworth where Ben will then take on a challenging 133 miles, including some hill climbing to finish his ride in Edinburgh.

“I am looking forward to the challenge and to cycling though such a beautiful part of the country, although the real challenge begins on day 4 with 133 miles to clock with 8,000 ft elevation!”

You can follow Ben on his challenge on our social media channels from 11 June.

Good luck Ben!
