Event Overview

Cycle for Amy is a charity sportive in memory of our daughter Amy Watson-Wright and her choosen charity Childflight. Amy sadly past away on 9th April 2012 after a four year battle with brain cancer. Her memory lives on in the fund raising that we do and to date we have raised around 250,000 for various charities. 


If you would like to raise funds for charity through this sportive, it doesnt have to be for childflight although that would be great if you dont have one to mind.

Just by entering this event you will be helping up raise funds for CHILDFLIGHT a Manchester based charity which provides family holidays to Florida for children with life threatening illnesses.
