Christer's fundraising for Le Loop Pyrenees

Le Loop - supporting the William Wates Memorial Trust

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishes 21 stages later in Nice (due to the Olympics in Paris).

I (along with a few friends) will be tackling some or all of stages 13 to 15 in the Pyrenees:

Stage 13 – Agen to Pau 

Stage 14 – Pau to St Lary Pla d’Adet 

Stage 15 – Loudenvielle to Plateau de Beille 

this a 400 - 500 km with a scary amount of climbing. This is going to be incredibly challenging.

Every participant commits to raising a minimum amount for the William Wates Memorial Trust (WWMT). The fundraised money is entirely separate from the participation fee - donations do not pay for my Tour

All monies raised go directly to the William Wates Memorial Trust whose mission is to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence and fulfil their potential. This is achieved by giving grants to charities that engage young people through the medium of sports, arts and education.

It's been a tough couple of years for charities and particularly for young people. This is my chance to give something back and help support young people who aren't lucky enough to enjoy the advantages in life that most of us take for granted.

Le Loop is no small undertaking. Riding even ONE stage of the Tour de France route is going to hurt! Please reward my pain by giving generously.

Merci!
