LONDON, July 25, 2018 – On Sunday, July 29th, seven cyclists will bike a 100-mile route from London into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With leg-testing climbs and a route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics, it’s a truly spectacular event for all involved. The aim is to raise £10,000, which will go to support Global Fund for Children’s grassroots partners that are dedicated to advancing youth rights around the world.
“I’m cycling for team GFC because I very recently found out my wife is pregnant and it got me thinking about children and the future,” says rider Robert Mora. “I want to do the best for my child and will always strive to do so, but there are other children that don’t have such support and I’m doing it for them. So let’s raise some money!”
Our fabulous riders, led by team coach Tim Griswold, Spinning Star at Pure Gyms are: Alan Ball, Ben Storey, Damien Brown, Gillian Harrow, Robert Mora, Simone Klein, and Sophie Clarke.
Ben Storey adds, “This is an extraordinary challenge for an extraordinary cause.”
Global Fund for Children (GFC) UK Trust, created in 2006, is a UK registered charity (UK charity number 1119544). We work to generate vital income, create new fundraising opportunities, and raise awareness of the invaluable work of GFC’s grassroots grantees. Our aim is to extend the reach of GFC in the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond.
