Multiply account director Stuart Duncan has set himself a mountainous challenge in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Stuart is taking part in the Central America Cycling Challenge in February which will see him pedal 700km through three countries in eight days.
Averaging 70-100km a day, Stuart starts his quest in Panama City, travelling through Costa Rica and finishing in Nicaragua. He hopes to raise a minimum of £3300 in aid of the cancer charity.
Riding with 60 other charity cyclists, Stuart will bike it up and down smoking volcanoes, through humid rain forest and along punishing high altitude passes.
He said: “I decided at the start of the year to focus my efforts on getting fit and seeing part of the world in a unique way. It’s also a chance to meet lots of new people while having a thrilling one-off experience.”
His training regime includes lots of gym work, running 10k events and following a personal training programme.
Stuart added: “I have some friends who have relatives recently diagnosed with cancer and it’s frightening how close it is to everyone. Macmillan is a worthy cause and this is my small way of making a positive contribution to help those living with cancer.”
As account director with Edinburgh marketing comms agency, Multiply, Stuart is predominantly responsible for client Kimberly-Clark in the UK and throughout Europe.
A recent salsa party at The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh raised £1500. If you would like to contribute to Stuart’s fund raising campaign, please visit www.justgiving.com/stuart2707
