We SMASHED Our ‘Tour De Great Britain’ Event

 

What a weekend we had!  Our first fundraising event ‘Tour De Great Britain’ took place last weekend and couldn’t have gone any better!

We set out to with our willing volunteers to take on the challenge to cycle the 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐉𝐨𝐡𝐧 𝐨’ 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐚𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐝’𝐬 𝐄𝐧𝐝 on exercise bikes totalling 1407km in 12 hours! We know, we are CRAZY!

We started at 8am and had 6 fundraisers cycling at one time on exercise bikes until we reached our team target of 1407km. A minimum of 2 Beesure team members be cycling at one time joined by 2-4 volunteers helping us reach our target, only stopping to rotate with another cycler.

We wanted to match our 1407km by the pound, so will aimed to raise £1407!    We actually hit £2010 & still counting!

Energy Fitness Pontypridd

energy fitnessEnergie Fitness is a locally owned gym who opened in 2019 in Pontypridd town centre. Not long after opening, this thriving new business was hit by Storm Dennis and caused the entire gym to be hit by the floods. Through sheer resilience the gym was refurbished ready to reopen, until the Covid-19’s global pandemic forced it to close it’s doors once again.

Now the gym is finally able to be back open, we at Beesure thought it was the perfect place to host our ‘Tour De Great Britain’ event to bring awareness to such a great gym and an amazing charity who’s goal is to bring positive change for brain health in sport!
