Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership has issued a news story to the media announcing their involvement in the Andy Cox Challenge 2022 and urging the public to support the event.
Officers and staff from the partnership, including Warwickshire Police, Warwickshire County Council Road Safety Education Team, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire and Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, will be supporting the high-profile event by running or cycling a set distance of 10 or 20 miles on Wednesday May 18.
To encourage as many people to take part as possible, those who can’t take part on 18 May can still pledge to cycle, walk or even swim or horse ride an equivalent distance on a day of their choice between 16-22 May.
Chair of Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership Philip Seccombe said “I’m proud of all the participants who are stepping up to support the inspirational Andy Cox in this Challenge. As well as raising much-needed funds for RoadPeace, the Challenge draws attention to the number of people who needlessly die on our roads every year.
“This is something Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership is working hard to change because we believe by looking at and improving all aspects of road safety, including road and vehicle design, speed, post-collision care and road user behaviour, we can help reduce death and serious injury on our roads and create a safer road environment that will encourage people into active and sustainable travel.”
