Children’s Hospice South West signs up for Break The Cycle 2023

Bristol Sport Foundation is delighted to announce that Children’s Hospice South West has become the latest member of the Break The Cycle 2023 family. 

Our annual Break The Cycle event has raised vital funds for Bristol Bears Community Foundation and Bristol Sport Foundation since its inception 13 years ago.

Taking place on Sunday, July 16th, the 2023 edition is giving participants and charities the chance to raise money through sponsorship for a cause of their choice for the first time. 

Children’s Hospice South West has become the latest charity to sign up to the fundraising opportunity, giving riders the opportunity to pedal in support of the charity.

Participants can choose to cycle one of three new routes through the Mendips, designed by triple Olympian Oli Beckingsale, with Bronze (42 miles), Silver (66 miles) or Gold (100 mile) cycle loops available, that all start and finish at Ashton Gate Stadium.

For more than 30 years, Children’s Hospice South West has been caring for children with life-threatening conditions by providing children’s hospice and professional family support services, enriching the lives of the children and their whole family.

Hollie Thorogood, Event Fundraiser at Children’s Hospice South West, said: 

“We are delighted to be working with Bristol Sport Foundation for Break the Cycle, a fantastic event that looks set to raise great amounts for local charities. As Bristol’s local children’s hospice, we can’t wait to see how many people saddle up and take on the miles and help raise vital funds for children and young people with life-limiting conditions.”

Ben Breeze, Chief Community Officer at Bristol Sport Foundation, said:

“It’s fantastic to have Children’s Hospice South West sign up as our latest charity partner for Break The Cycle 2023 and use the event to raise funds to support and sustain the incredible services they provide, caring for children with life-threatening conditions.

“The momentum behind this year’s event continues to gather pace and we are urging more charities and individual fundraisers to get involved. Whether you’re an individual raising funds for your own cause or a charity looking for an event for your fundraisers to take part in, Break The Cycle 2023 is an inclusive event that has a route for every cyclist.”
