Do you remember Laurence and Pete mentioning in their initial video they were aiming at raising 40,000EUR for charity and scholarships?…
Well, Pedal4Innovation did better than that. The the raised funds are almost 45,000EUR or 36,000GBP. The numbers are a bit “give-or-take”, mainly because funds were raised in both currencies. Besides, with the Euro nowadays the exchange rate is a bit tricky.
We changed our targets a few times. The response was so great that we continuously tried to increase the bar and aim for more.
Here is the breakdown by all three directions we initially set foot to take:
- Scholarships for the next stage of Pedal4Innovation (the Student Contest) – 9,000GBP
- Neuroblastoma Alliance UK – 13,104.25GBP
- Alzheimer’s Research UK – 13,752.18GBP
The truth is that the JustGiving donation pages will remain active online for a while. It seems there are still people willing to make a donation. Wonderful, isn’t it?
Pedal4Innovation’s team would like to express their gratitude towards every person, colleague, organization, family, friend and person making a donation, supporting and helping us! Without you, Pedal4Innovation would have been just a personal cycling challenge. Now, it is a statement of compassion and care! THANK YOU!
