BCA Paris challenge to support charity

An intrepid team from BCA is raising funds for charity with a bike ride from the UK’s largest auction centre at Blackbushe to Paris, where BCA operates one of eight French remarketing centres.
 
The 400km challenge is in aid of ‘Action for A-T’ and aims to raise £30k. The team of 40  includes riders from BCA and the wider motor industry.
 
Among those taking part, Craig Purvey, chief commercial officer at BCA said: “While this will be a gruelling ride of 250 miles, this pales when considering the challenges that face those who are dealing with Ataxia Telangiectasia every day, either as a sufferer or a carer.  It will be a testing ride but we are focused on the funds we will raise for this very worthwhile cause.”
 
Action for A-T funds high-quality peer-reviewed medical research to speed up the process of identifying a cure for Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T), a rare, genetic degenerative disease of childhood, which affects multiple systems of the human body. In people affected with A-T, a gene called ATM is mutated.
 
Health progressively deteriorates causing an overall loss of coordination and muscle control. Children are usually confined to a wheelchair by the second decade of life (around the age of 10) and will need assistance with everyday tasks.
 
The charity has invested more than £1,000,000 in a variety of A-T related research projects around the world.
