Story

Team Bex was born from a single determination to beat the odds and refusal to give in even when facing devastating news. Rebecca (Bex) sadly lost her battle on 1st July 2016 but she fought all the way, encouraging others to get up & get fit no matter the odds being faced. Bex wanted the team to raise as much money as we could for Cancer research, directing it towards Bowel & Liver cancer and Cancer gene research. Initially the team raised £62,080 for local support charity HCCN which supported Bex & her family throughout her treatment. Now we continue to raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK via the Team Bex just giving page with the current target reaching £30,000.

"Fate Whispers to the warrior, You can not withstand the storm. The warrior whispers back; I AM the storm"

- Final words from Rebecca - Forever the storm

The 401 Foundation has been founded and created by Ben Smith. After completing The 401 Challenge; a multi award winning project that raised over £330,000 for two anti bullying charities between 2015 and 2017, Ben Smith felt that The 401 Challenge needed a legacy. The project had set out to inspire and challenge people to achieve things they never thought they could, it brought together people from all different kinds of backgrounds and raised awareness of bullying issues in the UK and its effects on people's lives. As a Foundation We aim to provide grants of between £1000 and £3000 to support small grassroots community projects and individuals in building confidence and self esteem along with tackling mental health and self development issues.

“CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM ARE TWO OF THE MAIN BUILDING BLOCKS TO A HAPPY LIFE, SHOULDN’T WE ALL HAVE THE CHANCE TO FIND OUR HAPPY”

— BEN SMITH
