On Friday 28th April, 30 of our fittest people took part in our very own cycling event, in aid of the charity Candlelighters. The mission was simple, how far can your team cycle in 15 minutes??
There was blood sweat and tears as the teams battled their way through this challenge, on the exercise bikes provided to us by David Lloyd and Anytime fitness. The gyms also kindly donated Family passes for all competitors to visit them. The cyclists were additionally cheered on by the representatives from Virgin Active, Kirkstall who provided all of our employees with a free 7 day family pass and lots of Virgin Active goodies.
The winners covered a fantastic 30.9 km between them. Damien Coleman, Karl Briggs and Chris Sagar were presented with their medals, vouchers and 2 week Virgin Active family passes at our month end drinks event that night.
Great fun was had by all (although maybe not as much fun had by the Charity Champions who were responsible for cleaning up the sweat on the bikes!) and a brilliant £185 was raised to support the children and families facing cancer.
