Charities of the Year
Bike 4 Cancer
Bike 4 Cancer provides respite breaks for families affected by cancer. We also make grants to care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. cycling) and how it can help with cancer prevention/recovery.
Prostate Cancer Research
Our mission is to raise funds to undertake research that will improve the survival and quality of life of men with prostate cancer. Survival rates for advanced prostate cancer have improved little in the past 50 years and we are determined to make improvements in this area.
Josh Carrick Foundation
The Josh Carrick Foundation was set up in memory of Josh who passed away from testicular cancer at the age of 23. Josh believed in the ability of science and technology to effect positive change and with this in mind we inject funding directly into some of the most promising fields of research.
Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK
Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK has been granting magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions since 1986. Our wishes are truly magical and can bring so much to a child's life, providing memories that last a lifetime for both the child and their family.
Cystic Fibrosis Trust
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK's only national charity dedicated to all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis (CF). It funds research to treat and cure CF and aims to ensure appropriate clinical care and support for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
When and where
The doitforcharity.com London to Brighton Cycle Ride will take place on 6th September 2015.
Start point Clapham Common. Start time from 6:00am.
How fit do I need to be?
Hundreds of thousands of people take part in charity cycle rides every year - many of them for the first time. It's therefore perfectly achievable for the 'average' person to take part in this event but in order to maximise your enjoyment you DO need to train - and that means more than just a cycle ride around your local park! However, help is at hand in the form of the www.doitforcharity.com fitness pages where we give you a sample training plan – your charity will also be able to give you help and support.
What kit will I need?
Taking part in a charity bike ride that involves over 50 miles of cycling means that it's not only you that has to be in good shape, the bicycle you ride does too! As well as your bike it is essential you have a helmet and a pair of gloves.
How can I raise the sponsorship money?
Most charities will ask you to raise a minimum of £100 to take part in the Doitforcharity Cycle Ride - the reason for this is that places are extremely limited and the charities obviously want maximum benefit from the places they have been allocated. However, you shouldn't find it difficult to raise this money - after all you don't cycle 50+ miles every day do you?! One top tip is to ask employers to match everything you raise pound for pound.
You can create your own personal fundraising page on www.doitforcharity.com/give where people can simply donate on-line.
Once again more advice is available is on www.doitforcharity.com on the fundraising advice pages and your charity should be able to help out as well.
What do I need to do next?
Simply complete the register online form. As long as you commit to raising the minimum sponsorship your charity will be delighted to have you cycling on their behalf!
