Senior York health administrator Mike Proctor to take on Vietnam to Cambodia cycle challenge
8:00am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
A SENIOR York health administrator is to cycle from Vietnam to Cambodia in support of a hospital charity.
Next month Mike Proctor, the deputy chief executive of the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, will be taking part in the Vietnam to Cambodia cycle challenge in support of the York Teaching Hospital Charity.
Mike will be riding alongside Jason Gandy, who is also based in York and who is a big supporter of the charity.
The long-distance bike ride is one of the toughest in the world of fundraising events.
It takes participants from Ho Chi Minh City, the former Saigon, in Vietnam, to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, in Cambodia.
It follows a 400km route which passes through many traditional Vietnamese villages.
Mr Proctor said: “Jason and I are very excited to be taking part in the Vietnam to Cambodia Cycle Challenge in support of the hospital charity. This will be a tough but rewarding challenge, raising money for our services to really benefit our patients.”
The trust plays a vital role in raising funds for York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and ensuring the best quality of care is provided by funding additional facilities, equipment, research and specialist staff training for the benefit of patients.
To sponsor Mike or Jason or for more information about taking part in a challenge event, phone Lucy Lowthian on 01904 721737 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
