Team story

[p]Hi there, thanks for visiting my fundraising page.[/p][p]Every year, I do some crazy event raising money for charity.  This year, I am undertaking the grueling [b][url=http://troisetapes.org/]Trois Etapes Pro Am Race[/url].[/b][/p][p]With 3 stages in the Pyrenean mountains, this will be the longest and hardest thing I have ever done in cycling.  I've been training all year, but don't think anything is going to prepare me for racing up these mountains over three days. I look forward to it with both excitement and fear![/p][p]Unique in the 'charity ride' calendar, The Trois Etapes is the only challenge where a team of 8 race together for the finish, and top places are tracked by how the whole team does and not just individual by individual.[/p][p]And why am I doing all this?[/p][p]To support [b][url=http://www.foodcycle.org.uk]FoodCycle[/url].  [/b][/p][p]There are more than half a million people living in food poverty in the UK. At the same time an estimated 400, 000 tonnes of surplus food is thrown away by food retailers every year. [/p][p]FoodCycle builds communities by combining volunteers, surplus food, and spare kitchen spaces to create nutritious meals for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation. [/p][p]Now in 18 communities, their network of over 1,300 FoodCycle volunteers is coolest most amazing grassroots community approach to tackle food poverty, food waste and social isolation in the local community.[/p][p]You probably also know that I had the honor of starting up FoodCycle all those years ago in 2008.  As the[b] FoodCycle Ambassador and the captain of the Trois Etapes team[/b], I'm extremely excited for this opportunity to highlight the work we do and to raise valuable funds for FoodCycle.[/p][p]I can also say now that all of the money raised will go towards our work, and not to my own salary when I was working there! :)[/p][p]Your support would be greatly appreciated, and to make your donation go further, I will donate an extra 20% for extra pound raised.  Which means that for every £1 you donate, if you are an UK taxpayer, £1.5 is actually donated to the charity![/p][p]Please donate what you can and thanks in advance![/p][p]Kelvin[/p]
