Ben Simper to take on 420m desert ride for Stroke Association

A very familiar face for so many of our clients, Ben Simper, one of RJP’s Client Managers, is set to tackle the Death Valley Cycle in South California and raise vital funds for the Stroke Association. We’re all very proud of the extreme challenge he is undertaking and hope he is able to achieve his fundraising target.

Around 152,000 people have strokes each year in the UK and Ben started raising funds for the Stroke Association after his dad had a mini-stroke (also known as a TIA or Transient Ischaemic Attack) on Boxing Day in 2010 and this has inspired him to conquer the gruelling 420km cycling challenge. Thankfully Ben’s dad has now recovered from his mini-stroke, but the experience has made his family more aware of the risk factors that contribute to the condition.

Ben will be flying out to Nevada on Saturday 7 November and will travel to Death Valley National Park where he’ll spend five days cycling in the desert. Ben has commented, “Training has been going really well, and I now can’t wait to get to the start line. My friends and family think I’m mad, but I wanted to do a fundraising challenge with a difference that would hopefully help me hit my fundraising target of £1,250 for the Stroke Association.”
