Robin’s ride for children’s charity

Practising on those Devon hills: Robin Burne and Bradleys colleague Richard Greetham

Budleigh estate agent Robin Burne is a well known name in the local property scene and is continuing to improve his performance as an athlete. He’s just completed his latest charity endurance challenge.

Manager of Bradleys, one of Fairlynch Museum’s Corporate Friends, he completed the Plymouth half-marathon on 19 April in 1 hour 44 minutes, beating his time from last year’s event by seven minutes. He came 649th in the total field of 3,922 runners, and 55th in the males under-45 category.

Last year, Robin completed four endurance challenges, including cycling for Bradleys’ chosen charity The Pituitary Foundation, as mentioned  elsewhere

This year he’s putting himself through another series of events for Action Medical Research for Children, with the highlight a sponsored cycle ride from London to Paris in just 24 hours  with Bradleys colleague Richard Greetham.

The journey will total 240 miles, split over two days, London to Newhaven, a mere 90 miles, then a quick six-hour break as they cross the English Channel to Dieppe. Once in France they will undertake a massive 140-mile push through to Paris along Champs-Elysees and finishing at the Eiffel Tower.

All the money raised will go to Action Medical Research for children. Despite enormous progress in medicine, there are still hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled children who need our help.

Action Medical Research is offering hope to the many thousands of families who are dealing with the trauma of a baby born too early, striving to support a child affected by disability, or facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.
Right now the best medical minds in children’s hospitals and universities across the UK are waiting for the green light to start research that could lead to life-changing treatments for babies and children.
