On the 14th August, Oli Goldsmith will be cycling from his hometown Pier in Bournemouth, a whopping 100 miles, to Brighton Pier, which he will attempt to complete in one day (in daylight).
Oli and his team of riders will be taking on the challenge in memory of his dear sister Faye Holden, who sadly passed away from Epilepsy in 2016 at the age of just 25 and have chosen to raise funds for Smile4Wessex for the Wessex Neurological Centre and Epilepsy Research, who are dedicated in investing fundamental scientific research in to the causes and diagnosis of epilepsy.
Faye was diagnosed with Epilespy at the age of 6 years old and was regular visitor to the Wessex Neurological Centre and underwent treatment to have a Vagus Nerve Stimulator fitted at the Neuro Centre, which helped to drastically reduce and control her epileptic seizures. Faye and her family have always grateful for the treatment she received at the Centre and in September 2014 Faye herself completed a 40-mile cycle ride to raise funds for the charity and this Pier to Pier Challenge is one of many undertaken by her family over the years in her memory.
