MK Dons supporter Adam Faiers completed his incredible season-long charity bike ride accompanied by 100 fellow cyclists on Saturday morning.
Adam has cycled to every away game of the Dons’ this season, including League and Cup matches, to raise money for the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust’s disability teams and the Redway School, a specialist school in Milton Keynes for children with severe physical disabilities.
The challenge included gruelling trips to Carlisle and Portsmouth, within three days of each other, and a long cycle to Hartlepool over the Easter weekend. Nine months of hard work came to an end on Saturday when Adam, along with a strong backing of fellow bikers at a staggered start, set off for the final away game of the season to Stevenage FC. To date, Adam has raised an astonishing £7,547.
As a mark of support and acknowledgement from his fellow supporters Adam was recently named the MK Dons Fan of the Year at the 2012/13 Player of the Year Awards.
Dons manager, who presented Adam with a collection from the Club’s players and staff prior to kick-off on Saturday, praised Adam for his achievement.
He said: “What a wonderful man Adam is. Football is a powerful industry and if it used in the right way it can help so many people. The disability team and Redway School in Milton Keynes will benefit from all of his hard work. I couldn’t imagine undertaking such a challenge.”
