A little closer to home than I would’ve liked lately, but it just goes to show whether its family, friends, colleagues or acquaintances, the number of people being diagnosed is not slowing down.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1519751409439{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]While much is being done and millions are being spent on cancer research which will undoubtedly provide benefits in the future, what we need right now is improved and local cancer treatment centres.

An interesting statistic I read today is that obesity is the second biggest preventable cause of cancer (after smoking).

Apparently, only 15% of people know this and I must confess I didn’t.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_image src=”” image_width=”1199″ image_height=”1122″ lightbox=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider size=”20″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1519751458099{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]So why not join the Ark Riders and the “not doing a bike ride” bike ride in July.

Raise some money for a new cancer treatment centre in Basingstoke AND reduce your risk of getting cancer. And maybe (probably definitely) make some new friends along the way.

What’s stopping you?
