In celebration of our 50th anniversary this year, Careys Foundation has set our biggest charitable cycling challenge yet – both in terms of mileage and fundraising.
24-hour cycle challenge in aid of five excellent causes
Across several of Careys’ offices, throughout the UK, our employees will take to the saddle to participate in our impressive 24-hour static cycle challenge. This event will happen from Wednesday 26th to Thursday 27th of June, and will be in aid of Careys Foundation’s five chosen charities for 2019:
- The Alzheimer’s Society
- Breast Cancer Now
- Evelina London Children’s Hospital
- Research Motor Neurone
- Breast Cancer Ireland
In our regional offices in Wembley, Kings Cross, Glasgow and Dublin, as well as at Careys Civil Engineering’s Graven Hill project site – 100 of our dedicated employees will climb onboard static bikes and cycle for over 24 consecutive hours, spread across a series of time slots.
Not content to pedal in the daylight hours, our cycling enthusiasts will also be riding throughout the night – all in support of fantastic causes.
Taking the challenge, a step further, we’ve set dual targets – aiming to hit 5,000 miles on the bikes and bring in a fundraising total of £35,000 for our chosen charities. Our contribution will help to fund pioneering research into breast cancer, dementia and motor neurone disease, and provide state-of-the-art equipment for children at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
