Customers and staff at MDL Marinas are cycling 1,634 miles in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

The Hampshire-based firm, Europe’s leading marina operator, has launched an exciting charitable initiative which will see its team and customers cycle the entire route of its 18 UK marina network and back again to help raise funds for the cancer charity.

The company initiative was created in support of Mike Glanville, MDL’s group head of operations who has undertaken two charitable runs to-date following the loss of one of his best friends to prostate cancer.

Mike is currently in training for the London Marathon on April 24.

The team will be cycling the 1,634 miles in an effort to raise an additional £1,634.

MDL’s static bike will be making a grand tour of its 18 marinas including locations in Hamble, Poole, and Torquay, where team members and customers will be challenged to hop on the bike and raise funds.

Mike said: ‘It’s fantastic that the team at MDL are running this initiative and helping to raise further funds for the charity.

‘This cancer affects thousands of men each year, and we are hoping the MDL cycle challenge, along with my running efforts, will not only help raise further funds to find a new cure, but also help raise awareness of the cancer amongst our customers and teams.’
