Charity seeks fundraisers to cycle in memory of Dr Will Murray
Brake is looking for people to sign up for a fundraising cycle ride in memory of road safety expert Will Murray who died in December 2016.
Will was a renowned international occupational road safety expert, including through his role as research director of Interactive Driving Systems and subsequently eDriving Fleet, as well as a trustee for over 25 years for Brake.
He was also a keen cyclist and worked hard to promote the benefits of cycling and reducing traffic on the roads.
In July last year Will used his love of cycling to its best advantage by fundraising for Brake and raised over £2,000 by cycling from London to Paris.
Will’s wife Marie is encouraging Will’s colleagues and friends to sign up to a similar fundraising event to raise money for Brake. The 54-mile London to Brighton challenge takes place on Sunday 17 September 2017 and there will be 4000 cyclists taking part in the event, all raising money for their own personal cause. Brake hope to have 100 cyclists taking part on the day.
Lisa Kendall, community fundraising manager at Brake, said: “It’s so lovely of Marie to support a fundraiser for Brake in Will’s memory and we’re all grateful for her support. Will loved his cycling adventure from London to Paris, and he was in France for the final of the Tour de France, which was the absolute highlight of his trip. We’d love to hear from anyone who’d like to take part in the event in memory of Will and to support Brake.”
