Softwire Charity Cycle II: Cycle harder!
17 August 2012, by Jenny Mulholland
After the success of our London to Brighton cycle last year fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust, Softwire’s intrepid cyclists have decided to go even further this year. On the 26th August we will be cycling all the way from Bristol to London, in aid of Action Medical Research, raising money for their crucial work funding and supporting medical research aiming to prevent and treat diseases and disability in children and babies. The route this time is 117 miles long – twice as far as London to Brighton!
The team coming from London is (from left to right) Rupert, Jonathan, Rob D, Jenny, Michael and Simon, plus Tim.
Ric, head of the new Bristol office, will also be joining us from there – he was also the one who sorted out the stylish Softwire cycling jerseys you see in the picture above!
As per last year, the group is quite a mixed-ability group, from those who compete in triathlons on a regular basis, to those who are pushing their own limits and wondering whether they are going to make it all that long way in one day… So please sponsor us for Action Medical Research, at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/softwire-bristol-2012. Softwire will match every penny raised by Softwire employees, up to £500 per employee. This means that, up to our target of £4000, donations count for double, so even a small amount given makes a real difference to sick children’s lives.
Thanks – wish us luck, and we’ll report back in a few weeks!
