Team story

[p]Brave members of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary are organising a very special event called Get Moving to End Polio in a bid to raise money for the [url=https://www.endpolio.org/]End Polio Now[/url] Rotary campaign.[/p][p]The club has a history of weird and wacky fundraising ideas including The Big Climb, which saw members climb the outside climbing wall at Longrige 256 times, the equivalent of base camp to the summit of Everest; and not to mention taking on the Thames Path Challenge - a gruelling 50k walk against time from Runnymede to Henley; and 24 challenges and 24 hours, so this is nothing new for them![/p][p]The idea is for a 40 person relay team, over the course of 12 hours to take on either a rowing machine, treadmill, static bike, or skipping, one after the other. People can choose what they want to do, and they can do it whatever speed suits them, but there is no stopping or time to change over so literally the next person has to be ready to go at exactly 18 minutes.[/p][p]The reason we are doing this is part of Rotary’s initiative to end polio, the main focus of which is on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, which is a total of 1240 miles – hence the challenge of 12 hours and 40 people!
