Getting Back on the Bike for 1moreChild

We will be in Manchester’s tech hub, MediaCityUK on October 16, attending their Interact event. The event will be an opportunity for us to carry on with our fundraising effort for 1moreChild. #CatchZach, inspired by our Co-Founder Zach Douglas, is a 90 second cycling challenge which will get you sweating for a great cause. 

Take on the Challenge and help us raise money for 1moreChild

The challenge was inspired by our co-founder Zach Douglas who cycled 350miles from Geneva to Milan and helped raise over £10,000 for 1moreChildTo carry on from his fundraising effort we are challenging you to jump on the bike desk at our newest Business Centre location, MediaCityUK on October 16.

There are two parts to the #CatchZach challenge and two chances for you to win! 

Firstly there is a competition to see who can cycle the furthest in 90 seconds. The male and female who achieve the greatest distance in 90 seconds will be announced as ‘MediaCity’s Fastest Deskercycle’ and will win the perfect exercise companion, an iPod nano. The second part of the challenge is to reach a target of 350miles which Zach cycled in his fundraising effort. Each cyclist’s miles will be added up and their name will be put into a prize draw to win an iPad mini which will be drawn once the target is reached.  

Local lad Chris Latham, a Team Sky British Cyclist will be at the event and will no doubt be aiming for a spot on the leader board.
