Werner’s 400 mile cycle

Vincent's step-father and Hannah's American 'Opa', Werner Beck, joined the #themidlifecrisischallenge by deciding to cycle 400 miles by March 2015. Unlike Vincent, he has been actually cycling outside, around his local community in Florida. Werner has now completed his almighty cycling challenge and has raised the impressive total of $4110! Huge thanks to Werner for his efforts and to Uschi, Vincent's [...]

My own connection with Kent College goes back to my school days, when I regularly played against their sports teams, and then later to 2001 when I became a teacher and house tutor there.
