Leicester Fans Put Wheels In Motion

Leicester City fan Richard Page will be cycling to Bloomfield Road this weekend for the game against Blackpool. 

Having already cycled to The Foxes' other away fixtures this season, Richard plans to take in every club in The Championship as he looks to raise money for his son Ellis and a number of other children. 

Just before his fourth birthday Ellis was diagnosed with MECP2 Duplication Syndrome, a rare chromosome disorder. Richard, accompanied by Ellis' uncles Gary and Chris, is aiming to raise £100,000 in an effort to continue further research into the condition.

In the process of gaining charity status for 'MECP2 UK Support and Research', the condition is so rare and unknown that it is difficult to raise funds through the usual government channels.
