Iceland challenge raises £13,691 for Mary Hare

On 23rd July 2021 Max Harrison set off on a 1,500km cycle round the ring road of Iceland. The ride took him and his friends on climbs of more than 30,000 ft, through Iceland's stunning volcanic landscape. Each day they cycled an average of 100km for a total of 2 weeks.

Max said, “It was a fantastic trip. Extremely challenging at times but the scenery was amazing and we fought off the elements each day to enjoy Iceland’s great food! We had rain for the first 7 days but then a mix of sun and overcast. We came across truly amazing landmarks and despite a minor fall off my bike, we were not defeated by Iceland”.

Max’s mother was born deaf so he understands why Mary Hare's work is so important. Max had terrific support from friends, family and work colleagues and his emplyer, BP, matched some of the funds raised.  Max raised a fantastic total of £13,691.54  - thank you Max!
