On 7th April 2015 Jay will be cycling 300 miles across France, Belgium and Holland in a bid to raise awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis. Over 260,000 people in the UK are affected by Crohn’s and Colitis with no known cure. 200,000 people claim they have been forced to give up Sport and 69% of young people affected feel it prevents them from reaching their full educational potential. 
 Crohn’s and Colitis has well known ambassadors from the Sports industry, notably former Manchester United Midfielder Darren Fletcher and Olympic Gold Medalist Sir Steve Redgrave. LLS have ambitions of raising the amount of quality sports provision within local Primary Schools and understand that all barriers to participation must be catered for. To help raise the standard of sport provision within local schools, LLS deliver post 16 Coach Education courses, developing “NextGen” Sports Coaches who are gaining both experience and qualifications whilst breaking down barriers to participation in sport. 
 “Crohn’s and Colitis is becoming increasingly common amongst young people and because of the low level of awareness people are uneducated to what the condition actually is. Sport should be a integral part of any young persons school years and personal development and should be made accessible to all. I believe that being forced to quit sport at a young age has detrimental effects on health long term and have decided to attempt to raise awareness of Crohn’s and Colitis through the vehicle of sport”. 
To help raise awareness he will be raffling two Premier League tickets to Everton Football Club & Liverpool Football Club with a stadium tour based on donations of £10 or over. 
All donations are welcome no matter how small. Each donation over £10 will be given a number to be drawn out on 6th of April.
