Over the next year I have chosen to fundraise for Empire Fighting Chance. it’s a locally founded Charity in Bristol; helping, support and encourage vulnerable young people overcome their various mental health challenges, through non-contact boxing, underpinned by intensive personal development, helping to give them a chance in life.
I will be combining my fundraising efforts and challenge with my friend Kels.
Having both personally visited the charity and seen first-hand the incredible difference they are making to young lives, we are very excited to be able to raise funds through our cycle challenge.
We decided to take on this big challenge as neither of us have cycled this distance, over 382km, on consecutive days or cycled abroad. Kels has only recently started cycling, so this will be a huge personal challenge. Bel is turning 40 this year and really wanted to do something to challenge her physically and, in the process, make a difference to others, by a supporting a charity that she feels passionately about.
Please help us support this amazing charity who is growing nationally. Any amount is really appreciated. Please take a look at our Just Giving page.
If you are business that is looking to do some corporate sponsorship this year, please get in touch as we have a few opportunities to have you logo placed on our cycling jersey.
Please do take a look at their website www.empirefightingchance.org.
EMPIRE FIGHTING CHANCE
We use a powerful combination of non-contact boxing and intensive personal support to challenge and inspire young people to realise their unique potential. We focus on vulnerable young men and women, including those excluded from school, involved in crime and experiencing mental health issues. Run from gyms in deprived communities, we offer young people a tailored programme featuring boxing, mentoring, education, therapy and careers support. Our work changes lives, improving young people’s education, mental health and career prospects.
