MY Network partners are launching their very own charity cycle #MYcycle this year with the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire. The cycle is a 60 mile challenge departing from the Shay Stadium in Halifax at 7am on Friday 27th June 2014.
The route will take in Wakefield, Dewsbury, Huddersfield and then back to Halifax. There will be a celebratory lunch at Bar Eleven that afternoon welcoming all the riders back.
The group have nominated four local charities to receive all money raised and they include the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Wakefield Hospice, Age UK Kirklees & Calderdale and the Laura Crane Trust.
Barclays will match fund monies raised and if you don’t want to take part but would still like to donate you can do so on the fundraising page and can register to take part on the website also (places are limited so please make sure you register to guarantee your place).
Stuart Stocks, Senior Business Manager at Barclays said: “I am delighted that Barclays are involved helping promote an event that will bring millions of pounds to Yorkshire. The world’s greatest cycle race is coming to Yorkshire and this pre charitable event raises the scale of the opportunity, income to local businesses and the community.”
Jason Costello, Corporate Partnership Manager at the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice said: “The hospice are honoured to be announced as one of the charity beneficiaries from the Charity Cycle Challenge, it’s fantastic the cyclists will be pedalling through the streets Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield as these are the very same towns and villages where we deliver support and care for the children and families with life shortening conditions.”
