Welcome to Dan's Trust
"Dan's Trust" is a charitable foundation, established in 2012 in memory of Daniel Bagshaw, a cycling enthusiast and extremely talented and athletic young man.
Tragically, Dan died on October 14th 2012, aged just 27, during an ITU Olympic distance triathlon in Hong Kong, when after successfully completing the swim and cycling events, and whilst on the finish line of the run, he was seen to collapse.
In June of this year, the charity is running a bigger ride from London to Paris, in which 70 riders will take part. Several, who are new to cycling, are embarking on what for them will be a lifestyle-changing activity. Each year the riders cover their own costs so that their fundraising efforts feed directly into the charity.
Dear All, I thought I'd let you know how productive your fantastic support has been. Our research earned 2 prizes at a recent cardiology conference in Paris. Once again many thanks for allowing us to achieve this success.
Best Wishes Amanda
