My story

[p]Hello and thank you for visiting my sponsorship page for [b]Blackburn Youth Zone[/b].[/p] [p]From September the 1[sup]st[/sup] to the 7[sup]th[/sup] in 2017, I will begin cycling 520 miles through the French climbing almost 60,000 feet in the is time. This cycling challenge will be, by far, the most demanding thing I have ever done. The challenge itself will be the culmination of 16 months of training, spending countless hours in the saddle covering hundreds, if not thousands of miles.[/p] [p]Blackburn Youth Zone (BYZ) is a fantastic facility based in the heart of Blackburn dedicated to young people aged 8-19 years old and open 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. The Youth Zone offers unique opportunities for young people, from every background and of all abilities, to enjoy themselves in a safe environment, to take part in activities where they can fulfil their own potential, widen their horizons and make new friends. We provide countless social, arts and sports opportunities for young people of all abilities to engage in for just 50p per visit.[/p] [p]Encouraging young people to lead healthy lifestyles is a key part of our work at the Youth Zone, both through giving advice on how to give up bad habits and encouraging regular participation in sports. We make access to sport as easy as possible by offering a mix of both traditional and non-traditional sports in a relaxed environment with a focus on promoting fun activities which young people can try out with their friends and take part in with a particular aim in mind e.g. to feel better and look good.[/p] [p]We know that the Cycle Challenge will serve as a great inspiration to our members and spark new found interest in cycling – we would love to establish a Cycle Club here at the Youth Zone as a legacy of this challenge, encouraging young people to get on their bikes and explore![/p] [p] [/p] [p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
