Every year approximately 1,700 children in the UK are born with Cerebral Palsy. That’s around 140 children every month.
We want to celebrate these children and recognise the incredible support that their families and The Pace Centre provide to ensure these kids reach their full potential in life.
So, in March Guy Stapleford will ride 140km every single day for 30 days.
140km to represent the number of children born with Cerebral Palsy every 30 days. If that wasn’t challenging enough, Guy will fit this daily challenge around his day job, family and other commitments – parents and carers often don’t get a break, so why should he?
We would love you to get involved too. Help support Guy in completing this incredible challenge and to raise vital funds for The Pace Centre to help them to continue to provide the support, care and love these children and young people need to reach their potential in life.
Your #PACE140 Challenge
How can you get involved? Between 1 and 30 of March get out and walk, run or ride any distance, as long as it is based around the numbers 1 and 4. This challenge can be anything that works for you – you can run or walk 1.4 miles, 14km, for 140 minutes or ride the full 140km with Guy.
Everyone who completes their own #PACE140 challenge and submits it using the form below will receive an exclusive woven patch – courtesy of our friends at the Adventure Patch Company – as well as skincare from the guys at LifeJacket Skin Protection and a challenge sticker.
