A fighter pilot has endorsed the superyacht charity Cogs4Cancer as the 2017 route is confirmed, with a selfie taken at over 30,000 feet above sea level.
The charity has benefited from a number of celebrity endorsements including Rihanna, Sylvester Stallone and Roman Abramovitch since the first endurance cycling challenge four years ago.
C4C has planned the longest route yet for the 2017 ride, starting from the London headquarters of Cancer Research UK and ending in Mediterranean yachting hub Antibes.
The new route promises to be the most beautiful and toughest itinerary to date. Full details can be found on the new look website which was launched last month http://cogs4cancer.org/2017-stage-routes.
This years peloton comprises of a mixture of superyacht captains, senior crew and industry professionals who will start in London, heading across the channel to Caen in northern France and then travelling south via Condeau, Cheverney, St Amend Montrond, Vichy, Le Puy, Vallon Pont D’Arc, Malaucene, Riez before finishing up in Antibes just ten days later.
Cogs 4 Cancer is managed by a group of volunteers who all work within the superyacht industry. 100% of all money raised goes to the designated cancer charities across Europe and the UK, and the volunteers not only put in countless hours planning, preparing and promoting, but also pay for all their own travel and equipment needed to make the cycle rides happen.
All 36 riders needed for the 2017 challenge are confirmed, and the charity asks that any yachting businesses that are interested in supporting this worthwhile cause to email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how they would like to participate.
Cogs4Cancer has been going since 2013 and has raised over 700,00 Euros for both Cancer Research UK and local French cancer charities.
They plan to hit their fundraising goal of one million Euros this year. To help them achieve this, please donate online at www.justgiving.com/cogs4cancer
