Adrian Long and Lee Mutch from Inter-Nett, a leading superyacht cleaning company, are planning a charity cycle ride from Antibes to Palma in aid of Cancer Research UK. They, along with six others who include: John Clark of Blowers Europe, Sarah ‘Dawsy’ Dawson of Fashion Wagon,
Robbie Maguire – captain of MY Happy Hour, Ben Young of Sunseeker Superyacht Management, Wayne Jones – captain of MY Rhino A and Steve Crowe of Yachting Pages, are planning to set off from the IYCA quay on the 5th October 2013.
They will travel 800km in five days and the aim is to arrive in time for the Pinmar Golf Tournament, a big yachting event and itself a successful charity fundraiser.
There is also a gala dinner planned on the 20th September at La Jarrerie in Bar-sur-Loup, with a raffle plus an auction of sporting memorabilia and weekend for two at Champneys health spas, to raise extra funds.
Everyone has their own story as to why they are riding but for Adrian it is very personal – he was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year and recently said “I am determined to fight back”.
It has also recently been confirmed that the sponsorship of Adrian’s bike will be from HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
There are a number of sponsorship options:
- Sponsor a bike at £5,000 each (all taken now)
- Sponsor another amount
- Provide something or a service which will be of use to the event
- Make a donation
Bike sponsors will get a prominent mention and a company logo with a link to their website on the CogsForCancer website, as well as a mention on Facebook and JustGiving.
Other sponsors will get a mention and logo on the sponsor’s page on the CogsForCancer website.
Personal donations allow you to leave a message on JustGiving.
The 8 are planning to promote the ride as much as possible with various PR activities and currently have company Tees and vans branded with the C4C logo.
