An Events Industry London to Brighton cycle ride
Thursday August 23rd 2018, departing from Twickenham @ 7am
tfconnect and AEO are proud to bring you this year’s fun fundraiser for Events for Namuwongo. It’s a warm up for the route to the AEO Conference, a couple of weeks later.
If you’ve always fancied cycling from London to Brighton in a day, but haven’t managed to get into the main event or, like us, you’ve always thought it was just too crowded, here’s your own bespoke Industry event!
It’s all being done properly with support riders, a support bus, a mechanic, transport back to London for you and your bike and, of course, food (fuel!).
We are aiming to get a minimum of 60 people to participate at a cost of £250 per person, with a minimum sponsorship target of £500 per person. So, if all 60 riders manage to raise £500 each, that’s an incredible £30,000* for Events for Namuwongo which, like the ride, goes a long way in the community.
This money will help to fund areas school uniform / materials, supporting families in the community, promoting all girls rights to education and developing business skills for school leavers.
*If your company could sponsor your place on this event it’s not only a networking opportunity with kudos, but it’s a cool (and cheap!) way for your company to be recognised as supporting our industry charity – think of it as very inexpensive PR! 🙂
Not only can you get fit, you can have a memorable day out in the saddle and maybe even come away with some priceless bragging rights when you beat your fellow industry companions!
If we raise £30,000, this will take the total raised for the cause to almost £900,000!
This is just three months away, so register your interest here.
Finally, we know what you are all thinking, would the ride be too slow or too fast for me?
Well, depending on who enters, we’ll have at least two, maybe three groups which can average 17-18mph, 14-15mph and 11-12mph – all with a sprint finish! 🙂
