Paragon Team to ride 100 miles for Shooting Star Chase children’s charity

Category:

We’re excited to announce that eight Paragon cycling enthusiasts are taking part in Velo South in September to raise much-needed funds for an amazing local children’s charity called Shooting Star Chase.

Team Paragon is made up of 8 keen cyclists - 7 Dorking-based riders and a Paragon colleague from our Hull office. Velo South is a 100 mile closed-road cycle event starting from the Goodwood Estate and riding out into the beautiful West Sussex countryside, taking in the South Downs National Park before a grandstand finish back at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

There’s no doubt it will be a challenging ride, especially as many of the team have not cycled this distance before. Training started in earnest with a session at Goodwood recently where 4 members of the team also took the opportunity for a photo shoot with ex-England rugby star Martin Johnson!

Team Paragon meet Martin Johnson at Velo South training.

We want to wish Team Paragon all the best with their 100 mile cycle…and most importantly their fundraising. They are aiming to raise a significant amount for Shooting Star Chase which is a children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause then you can donate via their charity page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/paragon-velo-south. Any amount you are able to donate would be appreciated - £20 pays for meals for a family staying at one of Shooting Star’s hospices for a day, and £100 could pay for a child to benefit from a one-to-one music therapy session.

Best of luck Team Paragon!
