Alpha Crew are excited to announce that we are bringing back our annual Charity Bike Ride! After the success we had with our inaugural ride in 2022, we want to try and beat our first fundraising goal and cycle even further. Read on to find out how our journey started.
In 2021, we lost a beloved family member, Hassan Elabbady. Every single person at Alpha Crew was touched by his passing and wanted to do something in his memory, and to help others with heart conditions like he did.
To honour Hassan, we decided to raise money for The British Heart Foundation (BHF). The BHF is an incredible cardiovascular research charity based in the UK that helps fund scientific research and breakthroughs in medicine. We chose this charity because their research funds so many important heart issues, including the same that Hassan faced.
Last year, 8 of our team cycled from London to Paris in three days and raised over £1500 for the BHF. This year, we wanted to set an even bigger challenge for ourselves.
