Now before you get over excited this doesn’t mean bike-riding bananas and chillies!
Instead a team of six cyclists will be riding 600 miles from Box Hill in Surrey to Arthur’s Seat – Edinburgh’s highest point – in just six days. This Ride2Raise challenge takes place on 4-9 September 2010.
Raise magazine is the creative force behind Ride2Raise. In addition to raising money for charity the publication hopes to promote cycling as a healthy, eco-friendly pursuit.
So what’s that got to do with Shared Interest? Well, each member of the Ride2Raise team has chosen two charities that are of particular interest to them to receive their support. The aim of the challenge is to raise over £10,000 which will be distributed between the chosen charities. Yep, you’ve guessed it; Shared Interest Foundation has been nominated as a beneficiary!
We are now waiting for the Raise team to disclose who is riding on behalf of the Foundation and looking forward to hearing the reasons behind their motivation.
Watch this space for news on our cyclist; we’ll post more information as it comes in.
