GM Fundraising is well known in the glazing industry for their epic cycling challenges but their next one is slightly different. Not only is GM Fundraising introducing a paddle to their pedal, but this event is exclusively for the ladies of the industry. Paddle2Pedal will take place in August 2017 and will see the 12 strong all-female team canoe 100 miles and cycle around 120 miles, with an abseil thrown in the middle.
Charlotte Davies, our Head of Marketing, is taking part in the challenge and comments: “For years Edgetech have been a big supporter of GM Fundraising and so it’s great to have the opportunity to take part on the front line this time. The guys from our industry who have given so much time and effort for GM Fundraising are a great inspiration, now it’s time for us WIGS to put our money where our mouth is and do the best we can for Hope House. I’m not the sportiest but I love a challenge and even more so as its raising much needed funds for the children at Hope House.”
The team will start from Glasbury on 20th August 2017. Over the following 5 days they canoe down 100 miles of the wilds of the River Wye. On day 5 there is an abseil at Symonds Yat, although this is optional Charlotte is determined to complete this part too. Day 6 will see the team commence the 120 mile cycling part of the challenge, ending up at Hope House Children’s Hospice in Oswestry on Day 7. The children, for whom this is all in support of, will be welcoming the team home, making the perfect ending.
Each member of the team are covering their own costs for the event, so every penny raised will go directly to the children.
