We’re really pleased to kick off our first company fundraiser, The Big Crow Adventure.
It all started in memory of a life-loving friend who passed away unexpectedly, shocking us to the core. After tentative first steps, this year, we’re stepping up The Big Crow Adventure as a chance to take stock of what’s important, whilst pushing ourselves, connecting with the great outdoors and doing some good for some charities who do such incredible work in our country and our communities.
This year, we’re aiming to ride 500 miles off-road in the month of September. If you’re a cyclist, you may think that 500 miles in a month isn’t that stretching. Our aim though is to do as much of this off road as possible, whilst holding down our lovely Crow jobs. And if it helps to scale this, 1 mile off road is normally accepted as being the equivalent of 2 – 3 on road, (or more depending on the terrain). Or putting it another way, from Crow HQ to Moscow as The Crow Flies.
The main ‘adventure’ is a grand ’round’ – a 200 mile circular off road route starting in Devizes, that takes in the sites of ancient Britain – the Ridgeway, all the various White Horses in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire as well as Stonehenge and Salisbury Plain. As well as that, we have a ‘Century’ – from the Crow office to Buxton up in the Peak District and back, planned for the end of the month. Where we’ll fit in the other 200, well, who knows!?
We’re supporting two charities this year. Locally, we’re raising money for St Giles Hospice Care, who help care for local people and their families in the Lichfield / Burton area. Nationally, getting behind British Heart Foundation and the vital work they do in battling heart disease.
It would be great if you can support us in any way knowing that whatever donation you do make, it is hugely appreciated and making a difference. Thanks for your support and thanks for supporting the Adventure!
