Yes, it was a very wet day but PerformancePro’s Enable Cycle Team braved the elements to complete last month’s Prudential RideLondon. Thanks to their efforts AND your generous support, we’re delighted to announce we have raised a hugely valuable total of £4290 for the One to One Children’s Fund’s work in South Africa.
The One to One team is working to make the dream of an HIV-free generation come true, and the PerformancePro RideLondon team was cycling to help them.
With the funds we raised, the charity can:
In addition, Performance Pro client and One to One Patron, Kevin Gundle raised an incredible £30,000 for the Mentor Mother Project.
We asked David Altschuler, Executive Chairman of the One to One Children’s Fund, to explain the impact of our fundraising.
‘It costs £5000 to fund the training, equipment and wage of a Mentor Mother for a whole year. So, the PerformancePro cycle team raised enough to fund close to 7 Mentor Mother out of our 30 person team. In doing so, we’re helping transform the lives of more than 300 at-risk mothers and children through home-based healthcare.’
David is also a PerformancePro client and he was delighted with our performance!
‘A fantastic effort all round from PerformancePro trainers and clients. Huge thanks to Anthony Purcell for leading the charge and to Dan Boulle for his fantastic support.
‘Kevin and Deborah Gundle, you are an inspiration!’
We also asked the PerformancePro’s Enable Cycle Team about their experience on the day, their highlights and most surprising achievements. Not surprisingly, finishing the race in such terrible conditions featured heavily, as did not falling of their bikes!
PerformancePro director Anthony Purcell’s highlight was eating a hot ham and cheese croissant after finishing! We were also heartened to hear that for many of the team, their passion for cycling remains undiminished and future ambitions include winning the Lee Valley Winter Track League and heading to Girona for an end of season training camp with GPM10.
