DERBYSHIRE Cricket stars Chris and David Adams will be cycling between each county cricket club in October for charity.

They will be starting at Durham CCC and finishing at Surrey CCC and passing through each of the 18 county’s doing a total of 868 miles in 15 days.

Chris and David who are both nicknamed Grizzly, will be doing the whole 868 miles and will be inviting celebrities, sponsors and cricketers to join them on various days of their tour.

This is a massive challenge for Chris and David as they are not trained cyclists. They will be embarking on the challenge for a very personal reason and hoping to raise lot of money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Chris and David’s father was sadly diagnosed with Peripheral T cell lymphoma attached to the liver last year and is currently undergoing treatment.

Peripheral T cell lymphomas are a group of rare and aggressive lymphomas that affect the T-cells found in the peripheral circulating blood.

Sadly Chris’s and David’s Father was diagnosed with Peripheral T cell lymphoma attached to the liver.

Chris and David really want to do something to help and make sure others do not go through the same experience their dad and family have been through.

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research are investing more than £1 million into research to understand how these lymphomas arise and develop more effective treatments.

Chris and David’s fundraising efforts will all go to help fund this specific research.

Chris Adams played first class cricket for Derbyshire from 1988 to 1997. He then joined Sussex as captain. He is the longest serving county captain in Sussex’s history. He captained Sussex to the 2003, 2006 and 2007 County Championship titles. He had a brief career at international level for England, playing five Tests and five One-day Internationals between May 1998 and January 2000. He is now the Cricket Manager at Surrey County Cricket Club.

David Adams also played for Derbyshire CCC, Gloucestershire CCC and Norfolk CCC. David launched and founded the Pro4Sport company with the aim of providing amateur sports people with the quality of equipment professional players have access to.

When founding the company, David explained that “the Pro4Sport concept was born of a frustration with the current market place and a desire for quality and value for money in specialist branded sports equipment.
