Doctor completes 600km charity bike ride in memory of daughter

The associate medical director, and consultant vascular surgeon at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, has completed a 600km bike ride around Regent’s Park to raise money for Whizz-Kidz, a charity for young wheelchair users.

Gabriel Sayer completed 130 laps in memory of his daughter, Molly, who died unexpectedly in April last year.

He said: ““I had a lot of support from people helping me on the day – those who came along to support and those who rode with me during the day and night.”

Molly was an enthusiastic runner, cyclist, and open water swimmer. When asked about the likelihood of him completing an open water challenge, he said: “Possibly, maybe Ullswater in the Lake District.”

Donations on his JustGiving page currently sit at £5,684, surpassing his initial £3,000 target. Gabriel is now aiming to raise £6,000 for Whizz-Kidz.

A team of Gabriel’s colleagues also raised money in Molly’s name, completing the London Triathlon last August, raising over £7,600 for Mind.
