We're about to take on the World's toughest bike race for an outstanding charity.
100% of the money we raise will go to the Matt Hampson Foundation. All costs associated with the race are being funded by the riders themselves.
The Matt Hampson Foundation is an incredible charity who provide advice, support, relief and treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause; but in particular, from participation in or training for any sport, sporting activity or other form or physical education or recreation.
The Foundation have the ethos of “Get Busy Living!” which is where our Team name came from in support of this meaningful mantra. The Get Busy Living! Centre that is currently being built is the perfect example of this. This is a rehabilitation centre designed for the Foundation’s beneficiaries who have suffered life altering and catastrophic sporting injuries.
The RAAM is a 3,081 mile continual Race Across America – starting in Oceanside California, passing through 12 states and climbing in excess of 175,000 ft and finishing in Annapolis, Maryland. With only 9 days to complete.
It is said to be the pinnacle of atheltic acheivement.
