Patrick McIntosh's #LifeCycle
Patrick is cycling from London to Japan to raise money for and awareness of cancer prevention
I'm Patrick McIntosh and I'm a big rugby fan. I'm cycling from Twickenham Stadium in London to Japan, in time for the Rugby World Cup this autumn.
I'm also a triple cancer survivor: bowel, prostate and skin.
Why on earth am I doing it? Well, if my challenge gets just one person to listen and decide to get tested early, then I think it’s worth it. There is life after cancer.
The money I raise will be shared between two charities that are so important to me: World Cancer Research Fund and St Catherine's Hospice in Crawley, near where I live. Could you donate £10 to support this challenge? Thank you to everyone who's already donated and for all your messages of support and encouragement.

Don't forget – get checked!
Please get checked, eat well, exercise, stay positive and don’t forget that you can sponsor my challenge #LifeCycle.
Patrick and Glenn, who'll be accompanying Patrick in a campervan, are now on their #LifeCycle, and have already reached Russia. We'll be following their journey on the blog, so bookmark the page for updates.
