Acumin Boss Cycles Epic Road Challenge for Charity

Acumin Boss Cycles Epic Road Challenge for Charity

Simon Hember, founder of Acumin Consulting leaves this week to take on the illustrious Hannibal challenge on two wheels in order to raise money for Bart’s Leukaemia research. A gruelling route covering nearly 1000 miles of mountainous terrain, the challenge represents  :

“As part one of my mid-life crisis this weekend I’ll be heading off to start my epic road ride challenge through Spain, France and Italy over two weeks – following in the footsteps of the great Hannibal and his army but with just my own horsepower and no elephants! I’m very excited to be doing it, and very grateful to my wife for encouraging me to do it, and putting up with having to watch me don lycra very early in the morning when going out for my training rides over the last few months!  

Last week, I took a trip to Barts Hospital and met up with Professor John Gribben who heads up the Leukaemia research labs there. We talked for a good while about his department, the vital research they are doing to fight Leukaemia and the challenges he has, especially considering the government funding cuts of nearly 30%.

We also spoke about Cyber Security which was a very sore subject given the hugely devastating breach they recently suffered which has had a devastating impact on their ability to keep dedicated to their primary purpose; treating their patients.  

I’m proud to be doing something positive in memory of my late sister Julia who’s life was so cruelly taken from her aged only 33 by a rare strain of Leukemia, and to support those at Barts who endeavour to win the battle against such an evil disease that takes the lives of so many. I remember how well Julia was looked after by the brilliant team at Barts and how they did all they could possibly do to try to save her”.

Simon hopes to be back in England on the 18th September, with over 968 miles cycled and over 81903ft ascended over the course of the route. If you would like to make a donation to support the Barts Charity and specifically the leukaemia research please follow this link to Simon’s Just Giving page.
