Cardio v Cancer: Centrick New Homes and Investment Boss takes on cycling challenge to support five charities

A Birmingham real estate specialist is gearing up to pedal with purpose, joining fellow property professionals to support the fight against cancer through Get Up Give Back.

Centrick’s new homes and investments director Andy Butts has begun the countdown to Ride London 2024 and has been clocking up hundreds of miles on a series of training rides.

The popular cycling challenge, taking place on Sunday 26th May 2024, will see thousands of cyclists hitting the roads. Andy is riding to raise funds for Get Up Give Back, which supports five cancer charities, each of which provide a beacon of hope and support for those battling the disease.

This year, Get Up Give Back, the charity arm of Property Entrepreneur and Property Pulse Network UK, will be focusing on Cardio vs. Cancer – an initiative created to mark its fifth year as a charity and marked by five mental and physical challenges in just five weeks.

Andy said:

“I’m deeply honored to be part of Ride London 2024 and to ride in support of Get Up Give Back. Cancer has impacted the lives of so many, and participating in this event is my way of giving back and making a difference. Together, we can pedal towards a future where cancer is no longer a threat and those suffering with cancer have the support and resources they need to fight it.”

Ride London, the ultimate is the ultimate cycling event, puts participants’ endurance to the test. The 100-mile route will set off from Victoria Embankment in the heart of the city, before heading through the boroughs of Westminster, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, Waltham Forest and Redbridge. Following this, cyclists will continue to pedal towards Essex, through Epping Forest, Braintree, Chelmsford and Brentwood before coming back into the city for the final stretch, finishing at the iconic Tower Bridge.

Andy added:

“Every donation received will directly benefit our five chosen charities – Shay’s Smiles, Shine Cancer Support, The Sutton Cancer Support Centre, U Care and Eve Appeal – each of which provides crucial support to cancer patients and their families. Whether it is funding groundbreaking research, offering emotional support services, or facilitating access to treatment, every contribution counts in the fight against cancer.”
