Story

The Inspired 7500-Mile Challenge is a fundraising activity that aims to bring people together to feel good, challenge themselves and support a common goal. The cause we’re supporting for the 2024 Inspired Challenge is Prostate Cancer Awareness. It’s a subject very close to the heart of our CEO, Jamie Bunce, after his school friend, Justin, sadly passed away at just 53 years old. You can hear more about Justin’s story here.

The disease affects 1 in 8 men in the UK - fathers, brothers, sons and husbands so it’s likely we all know someone whose life has been impacted by this. Awareness and early detection can be the key to survival and we want to spread the word on the steps people can take to stay on top of their prostate health, and their overall wellbeing. With wellbeing and health front and centre, plus the route passing through every Inspired Village, the 7,500-mile challenge is a chance to get us all moving, and hopefully have a bit of fun in the process! It doesn’t need to be cycling, we have colleagues and residents cycling, walking and running the route to achieve our target.

When we come together, we can achieve amazing things and if we can raise awareness, and save just one life, it’s been a success. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more information about how we're achieving 7500 miles and thank you for supporting this fundraising activity
