With less than three months to go and a quarter of the way towards their fundraising target, GM Fundraising and the Border2Border cycling team will be appearing throughout the FIT Show on Stand A22.
Gary Morton says “We were delighted and overwhelmed to be offered a stand at FIT 2016 by Matthew Glover and Paul Godwin, both members of this year’s B2B team. We saw this as an amazing opportunity to showcase to the industry the challenge we are undertaking during the 2016 Border2Border cycling challenge. Proudly sponsored by Deceuninck, the ride starts in Vancouver Canada on 12th June and the 18 strong cycling team, aided by 6 support crew, will cross seven mountain ranges and two deserts, covering over 2,000 miles, with 92,000ft of climbing, in temperatures exceeding 40 degrees, as they make their way to the Mexican border.
“Members of the team will be on the stand throughout the show offering up a ‘beat the pro’ challenge. The riders are all well into their training now for this mammoth challenge so why not come along to the stand and pit yourself against our riders in a 30 second sprint challenge on the WattBike?
Hope House Children’s Hospices will be along to support us on the stand and Fundraising Manager Alison Marsh comments: “We are really excited to be helping GM Fundraising on their FIT Show stand. As one of the largest contributors to Hope House, we see the benefits of the amazing support the glazing industry gives to GM Fundraising every day. We are looking forward to meeting and greeting existing friends and new members of the industry and having the opportunity to personally thank everyone for the difference they make to the children’s lives. We will be available to talk to throughout the show about the services the hospice offers and how the funds our supporters like GM Fundraising are spent. Please come along, we would love to talk to you!”
Gary adds “Although the ride is prominent in our own minds, it’s not just about the cycling – we would also love to talk to anyone interested in joining any of our other fundraising events taking place this year. We hope to see you at some point during the show.”
