A super impressive seven-year-old boy called Leo from Carleton Park Junior and Infant school is inspiring all his family and classmates by cycling a staggering 174 miles throughout the month of February to raise money for Life for a Kid charity.
Leo loves riding his bike and raising money for charity. Last year Leo raised over £1,000 for the same charity by riding 110 miles so this challenge is really going to test his cycling skills and endurance.
Leo’s dad Jim Cain is part of a charity rugby team that includes professional rugby players such as Adrian Morley, Paul Sculthorpe, Lee Radford and Rob Burrow to help raise money for fantastic charities.
The Life For A Kid Sensory Centre located in Hull has over 30 registered special educational needs children supporting autism, Asperger, Mowat Wilson syndrome and more.

Headteacher at Carleton Park Junior and Infant School, Joe Ayre said: “We are all so proud and impressed with Leo and wish him all the success in completing this phenomenal challenge. To be able to ride 174 miles in just one month is an incredible achievement especially for a seven-year-old and we are all looking forward to supporting him on this journey.”
Leo, aged 7 said: “I love riding my bike and for the whole month of February I’m hoping to ride my bike 10km a day. It is tiring but I am excited to go to new places and help other children who really need our support.”
