This event has no minimum sponsorship. However if all 800 cyclists could raise just £50 each we would be able to raise a fantastic £40,000.

Setting up a Just Giving page is easy and quick to do. You can simply share your fundraising page via social media and email, to encourage your friends and family to support you in raising vital funds for the Hospice.

Every day we need to raise £16,039 to provide our vital services across mid Essex.
