Alpha’s Reg Sookee crushes 100m charity cycle thumbnail

Alpha Group UK’s Reg Sookee conquered a colossal 100 mile bike ride to raise more than £1,200 for charity.

The Brand Manager completed the gruelling journey in 5 hours and 57 minutes, raising funds for Shooting Star Children’s Hospice.

After applying for five years, Reg finally had his breakthrough and was accepted to ride as part of Prudential’s Ride100 competition, a daring circuit filled with twists and turns, long straights, and dreaded hills around London and the Surrey countryside.

Although a keen road cyclist, the bike ride was more than a physical challenge for Reg. Following a visit to one of Shooting Star Children’s Hospice’s hospice days earlier this year, Reg was personally touched by the help and support the organisation provides for young people and their families, as they go through life-changing situations and battle life-limiting conditions. Seeing babies, children, young people and their families go through the struggles spurred Reg on his mission to raise money for the charity.  

Supported by his colleagues – who, TNP.MEDIA is reliably informed, are still to get over the images of him in Lycra – Reg completed the ride in a fantastic time and would love for any extra donations in order to support the wonderful Shooting Star Hospice.

The performance makes up for a disappointing defeat for Reg and the rest of the Alpha-letico Madrid football team during Hasbro’s charity tournament last month. Read how they were sunk in the semis in dramatic fashion here.
