GB ATHLETES SUPPORT GOOD CAUSES IN £1M PUSH TO PARIS

THE STORY:

· One YEAR from the start of the 2024 Paris Olympics local good causes are being donated places to raise funds from experience days hosted by GB Olympians.

· £569K already raised in donations, athletes aiming to raise £1m for good causes.


GB ATHLETES SUPPORT GOOD CAUSES IN £1M PUSH TO PARIS


To mark one year to Paris 2024 good causes are being given free places on GB Athlete Experience Days to help the athlete purpose project, Legacy 300, raise £1m for good cause by time the opening ceremony of Paris 2024 winds down the Seine.

Since 2012 brave cyclists, courageous rowers, adrenaline seekers and hockey players have donated £569K for good causes and taken part in unique head-to-head challenges with GB Gold Medallists.


The Beat the Medallist challenge series centres around VIP hosted challenges in numerous sports which allows you to measure up against a GB Gold Medallist but also enabling individuals or team entries to generate funds for their chosen good causes.


As they have already raised £569K in donations for good causes through the Legacy 300 project, the athletes are hoping, that the offer of free places will encourage local heroes to engage family and friends to support local good causes as they take on GB Gold Medallists.


EARLY ADOPTERS CUT THROUGH SUSPICION

AND GENERATE GREAT RETURNS


The challenge facing the projects aims, is the general suspicion of the charity sector, despite this the trial run saw the fundraisers at Property Race Day, Polo for Heroes, Securities Finance Ball, Building for Heroes; Kids Out, Paul’s Place and Action for A-T who are the first to have benefitted from these donated places, turn donated entry fees worth £1554 into £3,445 raised at Auction, (100% retained by the good cause).




Whilst these have kindly offered testimonials and social media confirmation, the one year to go campaign is designed to encourage fundraisers to seize the golden opportunity.


GB Rowing Gold Medallist Matt Langridge was looking forward to being part of this unique series having already posted a video message on his twitter feed. "As Olympians we would love to see the the next £500K we raise in donations to come in the year up to Paris 2024.”



Organiser is available for interview with respect to this project. Images on previous days are available.
