Cycle your purple socks off this October with a brand new cycling challenge from Glasgow’s Children’s Hospital Charity.
As part of annual #PlasterItPurple activities, they’ve launched Pedal It Purple – the cycling challenge with a purple twist raising funds for young patients and their families at Scotland’s busiest children’s hospital.
Your fundraising matters now more than ever, as vital services continue to be put under strain by the global pandemic. Young patients, their families, and the heroes who care for them are relying on your support.
How to take part?
Set yourself a distance from three challenges and start your online fundraising page. Choose from:
Lands’ End to John O’Groats – 874 miles
Scottish Borders to John O’Groats – 320 miles
Glasgow to Edinburgh – 50 miles
From 1st October, saddle up and see how long it takes you to reach your target. Don’t forget to sport your purple gear with pride when you’re on the road – it could be your purple charity top, purple socks (to really cycle your socks off) or even purple face paint.
You could even take your purple plans to the next level by kitting out your bike with our purple flags and balloons too!
You have from the 1st-31st October to complete your target distance, and to raise as much as possible along the way to ensure that we can be there for children in hospital beyond COVID-19.
They’ll provide you with a fundraising pack, t-shirt and access to Pedal It Purple Strava Club too.
