CHESHIRE-based children’s charity, The Joshua Tree, has just launched a brand new cycling event.
LeJog or Lands End to John o Groats in a day is a larger than life fundraising event for this Summer.
Getting into true Olympic style, The Joshua Tree has organised an indoor cycling challenge to take place at Mid Cheshire College on Saturday July 14th.
The charity is looking for enthusiastic cyclists to rise to the challenge.
Community fundraiser and event organiser, Rachel Thomas, said: “We need 12 teams of 4 to complete the Lands End to John o Groats route in a day. Cyclists will complete the 1,410km route in relay teams and prizes for the furthest individual and team distances will be awarded. The top prize is a jersey from Olympic gold medallist and Tour de France cyclist, Geraint Thomas.”
Team Cycles will be providing 12 Watt bikes for the event and will be on hand throughout the day offering training advice. Plus participants will receive nutritional hints and tips from experts, free sports physiotherapy and a goodie bag full of energy boosting treats to take home.
Participants need to pay a registration fee of £25 and raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship for The Joshua Tree. All participants must be over 16 years old.
The Joshua Tree is currently fundraising to build a Holiday House and Support Centre in Cheshire. The House will be open to families from across the North West of England who have a child undergoing treatment for an immune suppressing illness to have a short holiday. While the Support Centre will offer emotional support to these families and act as a drop in resource for families in the local community. The charity has recently purchased land in Sandiway to build the Holiday House and Support Centre.
