Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam 2012 | construction software uk | Scoop.it

We are very excited to once again be sponsoring and taking part in the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam, this time as a stage partner!
 

This year, Team Causeway will be made up of our Chairman Peter Nagle, CEO Phil Brown, COO Paul Madeira and at least five other cyclists from Causeway.


Together, we intend to raise even more than the £137,000 we managed in 2010, in support of Laurence Dallaglio and Freddie Flintoff’s fund-raising target of £2,012,000. All this money will go to Cancer Research and Great Ormond Street Hospital, through the Dallaglio Foundation and AF Foundation.

“I’m delighted to have Team Causeway along on the Cycle Slam again and to see so many new faces joining Peter, Phil and Paul.

We had a lot of fun together last time and that kind of camaraderie is absolutely essential to help everybody through the hardest parts of the ride. We’re very grateful for all Causeway’s support, both financially and mentally, when the going gets particularly tough.” — Lawrence Dallaglio
