On 18 June 2022 Tom Fletcher will cycle the entire length of Wales in a single day, from Cardiff on the south coast to Colwyn Bay on the north coast; a journey of 300 km with over 3,000 m of climbing in order to raise funds for St George's Hospital Charity.

Tom’s mum has a stroke disorder called CADASIL syndrome, and over the years parts of her brain have died through repeated strokes, resulting in a diagnosis of vascular dementia and deteriorating to a point where she is now in a nursing home at 59 years old.

However, Tom is: “Incredibly grateful to the team at St George's for their work on CADASIL Syndrome; this is an affliction that has plagued my family and hit my Mum hardest of all, so the prospect that others in the future may not suffer as my family has meant a lot to me.”

Therefore, whilst he continues to support his mum as much as he can, Tom wanted to give back to St George’s, as the place where his Auntie and Grandma were diagnosed with CADASIL and as the hospital has a research project on the condition, through raising money for the Neurology Department.

Tom said: “I've participated in many physical challenges throughout my life, but this will undoubtedly be the toughest of them all, so please do donate to this brilliant cause. Thank you.”
