A dentist will lead a team of cyclists over more than 2,300 miles to 93 football grounds in an effort to raise cash for a brain injury charity.
Dr Phil Johns, of The Smile Boutique Dental Practice in Peterborough, will take on the Route 92 Challenge in aid of Stamford-based Anna’s Hope.
Dr Johns and a team from the practice will attempt to cycle to every Premier League and Football League stadium between April 18 and May 5.
Two weeks later they will finish their challenge by cycling to Wembley Stadium in London for the FA Cup final on May 17.
In total they hope to complete 2,369.5 miles, averaging more than 130 miles per day, raising thousands of pounds.
Anna’s Hope supports children and young people with brain tumours. Founder Rob Hughes said: “We have had many people really test themselves to raise funds for Anna’s Hope and what Phil and the members of Smile Boutique plan to do is truly remarkable.
“He has inspired me to get back on my bike and join him and his team on some of the legs on the Route 92 Challenge to give them my support. Every penny raised will go to supporting children in the region who have a brain tumour.”
The challenge will take Dr Johns and his team from Newcastle and Carlisle in the north to Plymouth in the south. They will begin at Peterborough United’s London Road stadium.
