Friends Of Cross Charity

Meet Our Friends

Every year our Friends of CROSS help organise the Cross Atlantic Cycle.

 

The Cross Atlantic Cycle has 3 objectives, each of which has equal importance for CROSS Charity.

 

1. Cancer Awareness.
Cancer awareness is a key component of Cross Charity’s mission. We use the tour and other initiatives to provide a platform to educate the whole community on the benefits of exercise, diet and weight management in the fight to prevent cancer. During the tour we visit schools, rugby clubs and local community centres.

2. Community Support.
Through our annual cycle we have built a community that works together to support the work of Cross Charity as it battles cancer and its causes. The volunteers, business groups, cyclists and community visits bring together a community of people who work together to achieve a common goal. Our group includes cancer survivors, their friends and relatives, cancer combatants (medical and scientific professionals and their volunteer supporters) who come together in a collaborative way, supporting each other emotionally and professionally throughout the year to make a difference in the battle against and the recovery from cancer.

3. Fund Raising.
Working together we can identify the equipment and resources needed by Cross Charity in their research into cancer causes and cures. Our annual cycle event allows us to generate event profits that are utilised to fund some or all of the requirements specified by the Cross team.
