UK Number One Adaptive Athlete and The Knights Foundation Ambassador, Jamie Gane may be facing a set back with his next operation. Jamie had hoped to have further surgery by now, which would’ve followed with healing to allow him to sufficiently train for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. The National Health Service are yet to confirm the date.
On 13 August Jamie and Tony Knights will be Cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End the whole length of the island of Great Britain, the distance by road is 874 miles (1,407 km) and takes most cyclists two weeks to complete. Both Tony and Jamie will be completing the hardest cycle route in the country in aid of the Knights Foundation and Homeless veteran.
"I swore I would never get back on a bike again after route 66, I cannot stand cycling hence this being a real challenge for me. Thankfully both me and Jamie will be doing together so we can share the pain"
The aim is to raise £2,000 that will be shared between the Knights Foundation who look after children with disabilities, terminal illnesses and those that live in extreme poverty. The other cause they are raising money for is for Homeless Veterans, something close to both Tony and Jamie’s hearts and a cause they have both been actively involved in over the last few years.
