W Series champion Jamie Chadwick will be cycling 100 miles on her bike while never leaving her room tomorrow, Monday 4th May, with the aim of raising funds for the Hope for Tomorrow charity.

The organization provides mobile chemotherapy vehicles and services to support the NHS which are absolutely essential during the current crisis.


Exactly one year from the inaugural W Series race at Hockenheim, Jamie Chadwick is now ready to take on another challenge, this time with the target of reaching at least 15,000£ for the charity.


"Hope for Tomorrow is a charity close to my heart, and one that I have been supporting since I started racing." - wrote Jamie.

"What the charity does is really unique and special – it innovated the provision of mobile chemotherapy – using vehicles specially converted to Mobile Cancer Care Units by  Mercedes, and with dedicated staffing to support the NHS Trusts."


"This is absolutely vital at this moment, and they are in desperate need of funding to keep their services operating."


"We are living through unprecedented times and this new virus poses a huge risk to already vulnerable cancer patients during their treatment." - wrote Dr. Sean Elyan, Chair of Hope for Tomorrow and consultant oncologist at NHS Foundation Trust.

"Hope for Tomorrow and our dedicated NHS Trust partners are tirelessly doing everything we can to support these cancer patients through these trying times, keep them safe and alleviate the added stress the virus creates."


For those following Chadwick on social medias, it's common sight to see the 21-year old top-British racer sharing pictures of her bike training sessions and she says that she was eager to "tick off her first Century (100 miles)", aware that it will be a challenging target and will probably take her around six uninterrupted hours.


"It’s not going to be easy, by any means, and will probably involve being on the bike for around 6 hours -  but I am up for the challenge, with your support!"


The Chadwick Cycle Challenge will be hosted on the Zwift platform, with people able to join in and motivate Chadwick throughout her ride, and it will be streamed online starting from 09:30 am CET on the driver's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
