#StayStrongForOws Cardiff to Paris Bike Ride

17th January 2015


Supporters are being invited to get on their bike and gear up for an epic charity bike ride from Cardiff to Paris this June to raise vital funds for #StayStrongForOws!

Cardiff Blues launched the fundraising and awareness campaign - #StayStrongForOws – last year for injured player Owen Williams.

Wales international Owen Williams suffered a significant injury while playing for Cardiff Blues in the World Club 10s in Singapore and is currently at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff.

Owen remains on the long-term road to recovery as he undergoes his rehabilitation – with messages of support from around the world a huge source of inspiration for him, his family and friends.

And now fans can show their support with a charity bike this year between the Welsh and French capitals.

The bike ride will depart from Cardiff on June 3 from BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park and arrive at the finishing line at the Eiffel Tower in Paris on June 6 – stopping at rugby clubs along the route.

Squad members from the Cardiff Blues are due to take part with all proceeds going to fund care for Owen in conjunction with the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust.

The total cost of the trip – including sponsorship – is £2,000 per person and this includes a dedicated event manager, pre-event support, all food on the trip and accommodation.

Cardiff Blues will be holding a Presentation/Registration Evening in the Martyn Williams Pack Bar at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Wednesday, January 21 where supporters and sponsors can discover more.
