With the Tour de France coming to an end I thought there would be no better time than to reflect on PwC Ride the Nation (#PwCRtN), PwC’s charity cycle event with which Mike, Sarah and John helped out.
Starting in Birmingham, a team of just five riders attempted to cover a distance of around 2,000 miles in just 28 days, joined by colleagues from offices across the country who took part in daily sportifs or local rides and activities. PwC have run this event in previous years and gained the support of over 700 employees, either saddling up, or helping in other fundraising activities. So far, this event has helped raise over £300,000 for all the PwC Foundation Charities.
As the riders made their journey from Thirsk to Manchester, they made a pit stop in Leeds, home to Leeds Physio Clinic, where Sarah, John and Mike were armed with massage beds and lotion ready to spring some life into tired legs. It was amazing to see how enthusiastic each of the riders were as they pulled into Leeds, especially once they were told a massage awaited them. As they departed, their smiles strong and ever present.
Here at Leeds Physio, we commend the strength and resilience of those who took part in this event. The weather was horrendous, with all hopes for a sunny June lost. The task they had to complete was not the easiest, but they put their heads down and pedalled their
hearts out to support these fantastic charities.
Well done once again, and thank you PwC Leeds for letting us be part of such a wonderful and beneficial event. We hope that our hands-on treatments and our words of wisdom and encouragement helped you all continue your journey cross-country.
If you have an event you’d like us to help out with get in touch with us either by phone or by email to discuss this firther.
