Pedalling hard for CF Warriors

News
19th April 2019

Webhelp’s Director of IT services, Stephen Dickson, joined record breaking Cystic Fibrosis warrior, Josh Llewellyn-Jones, this week, as he attempted his latest endurance feat by cycling from Edinburgh to Cardiff in just five days. Stephen cycled with Josh and his team for the final three days of the challenge, travelling all the way from Leeds to the finishing line in Cardiff on Thursday (18th April).

Josh’s inspiration to complete the challenge was a similar feat achieved his late uncle, who back in 1989 cycled the exact same route to help raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.

Josh said: ”When my uncle and his friends cycled this route in 1989 they did it for people who, like me, are given a life expectancy. At the time, I thought that I wouldn’t make it to thirty, but thirty years later I’m re-living the same route in memory of them, and to help children with cystic fibrosis to lead healthier, happier, and longer lives through sport and exercise.”

Stephen added: “It’s been a real privilege to have been able to take part in this event with Josh and his team. Seeing firsthand how Josh is able push himself to the limits is hugely inspiring and an unforgettable experience.”

Webhelp has supported Josh through a series of remarkable fitness feats, including an attempt to lift 1,000,000 kilos in 24 hours in 2018. Later this year he will attempt his most extreme challenge yet, to cover 381 miles over five days, with a 21-mile Channel swim, 200-mile London cycle, and 160-mile Welsh run, all without sleep.
