#cyclefororly : 874 Miles, 44 hours, 1 goal
MRJ committed to cycle (on an exercise bike) 874 miles (Lands End to John O’Groats) in 44 hours to raise money for our chosen charity partner “a Smile for Orly”.
Why 44 hours?
It’s the world record, so why not!
On Tuesday 29th April our mission to ride 874 miles on an exercise bike got under way at 1:00PM. We aimed to tackle the challenge in 44 hours (the world record)… however we are delighted to say that we managed to beat even our own expectations and completed our final mile in 34 hours!
We had some great support from friends that we were keen to get involved and jump on the bike to help us complete our goal and we couldn’t have done it without them! Most importantly, the main goal of our bike ride was to raise awareness and funds for “a Smile for Orly” charity for projects at Manchester Children’s hospital, and with the generosity and help of so many great people we managed raise over £3400!
What we have managed to achieve has been phenomenal and we cannot thank everyone who got involved enough, we would like to send a personal thanks to the JCI team, current President Caroline McCarron and outgoing President Jen Smith for all the help and support we received from them.
We are extremely proud to have been involved with “a Smile for Orly” and could not think of a better cause to support.
