ON April 19th MFC Foundation and members of the Hull City equivalent, Tigers Trust, will cycle from Hull to the Riverside and one Boro fan is encouraging as many as possible to join them.
Ged had seen first-hand how the Foundation can help, they work we do and the difference we make. His experience came with the FIT BORO programme, but through that his eyes were opened to many other programmes the Foundation are involved with.
“Why do I want to support the Foundation? That’s easy,” he says, going on to explain: “In 2019 I had a knee replacement. The short version of a long story is I lost my fitness and my confidence went with it.
“I was suffering from the mental health issues this and the pandemic brought. I was over 16.4 stones when I started with FIT BORO. 13 weeks later I had lost almost 3 stones was confident to push myself and my fitness was back.
“Now I want to challenge myself to do more in one day than I could achieve before my knee was replace and payback the faith the trainers had in me.
“I owe the Foundation team everything. And that, quite simply, is why I’m taking up this bike ride and would love as many as possible to be there too.”
Roary’s Big Bike Ride will start on April 19th at 8.00am finishing the same day prior to the 8.00pm kick-off of Boro v Hull City.
