Superhero Jamie Secker, Project Development Manager for Briggs Defence, enjoys a challenge so much he has decided to cycle from London to Paris to help those who need it most.
Taking on a staggering 311 mile bike ride, Jamie is hoping to raise money for The Naomi Fund.
Jamie was moved by the story of Naomi Fardell who passed away aged two from congenital heart defects. Over the years, many events have been organised in Naomi’s memory with monies raised going to Great Ormond Street Hospital, Heart link at Glenfield Hospital and The Kingfisher Ward & Community Team at Grantham Hospital. Naomi frequently visited all of these places during her short life.
Jamie commented: “I wanted to help so decided to sign up for a cycle event that would take me and a group of 24 volunteers from Great Ormond Street Hospital to the Eiffel Tower. Setting off on 21st July, the aim is to cycle all 311 miles in 24 hours.”
Jamie is known for his dedication to charity work and has an impressive track record of events including;
- The ‘Rad Am Ring’ 24 hour cycle race in Germany for Mission Motor Sport to raise money for wounded soldiers
- Nine London Marathons for Marie Curie and Children with Cancer Charity
- Rally 4 Heroes in 2013 when he drove 3,500 miles around Europe in seven days to raise money for the Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes charities
Jamie isn’t stopping there. He is already planning to take part in the next ‘Rad Am Ring’ cycle event and Rally 4 Heroes in 2018.
“I feel that whilst I am fit and able to do so, I should participate in an event at least once per year. Its always good to push yourself outside of your comfort zones both professionally and personally.”
