On Friday, July 7, the staff at Adam Recruitment are cycling from Manchester to London to raise money for the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Following the recent sad events in Manchester, Adam Recruitment are undertaking a massive challenge to raise funds for their favorite charity- the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.
Head of Talent Shayne Wilson, a team GB age group triathlete, will be accompanied by fellow Team Oxygenaddict triathlete, Matt Wackett. The two will be cycling 211 miles from Adam Recruitment's head office, Portland Street, Manchester city centre, to their sister office in London.
The rest of the team at Adam Manchester will be racing Shayne in shifts on a stationary bike in the office.Hence the name: Wheel or No Wheel! It is estimated that the journey will take around 14 hours, so he and the staff will be starting their joint missions at 6 am on the 7th July 2017.
“When it comes to challenging yourself, there’s a mantra I heard recently from my coach that if it doesn’t scare you then it doesn’t change you. Well, I’ve gone and bitten off slightly more than I can probably chew with this one!
The sponsorship of VELOCHAMPION has been nothing short of miraculous. The kit they have been provided is second to none in terms of quality and I'm looking forward to seeing how it fares over the 200 miles. The website is a hidden gem wish I'd found earlier - it might have saved me a few pound on great cycling gear."
Wayne Greenhalgh, VELOCHAMPION Director added:
“It is massively important to us to support local charities, it’s an amazing thing the guys are doing for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and we are proud to help. 211 miles in one day is a challenge but I’m sure everything will be fine, and I would like to wish them the best of luck.”
