Unite Professionals proud to be supporting Claudette Joint on her marathon G2E! cycle ride

Unite Professionals proud to be supporting one of our case managers, Claudette Joint on her marathon G2E! cycle ride. We have sponsored her cycle jersey which is emblazoned with our unique logo!

On the 19th July 2019, Claudette Joint, who will be proudly wearing our jersey, will be joining a band of 35 (other idiots some would say!) cyclists in taking on the monumental challenge of riding about 300 miles from Grantham to Edinburgh. Some may think that this is not too demanding, so to make it a real challenge, the group are going to do this non-stop over a period of 30 hours!!

The only respite will be food and personal comfort breaks and the only protection from the pain will be a small bit of foam and plastic protecting their bums.

Claudette has been training hard and her last long distance training ride was last weekend at the Coast to Coast in a Day 2019, see picture below. Setting off at 5:30am on a sunny Saturday from Seascale in Cumbria and finally arriving at Whitby at 9.30pm after completing a 4500m ascent over the 150 miles!   

However, Claudette is not just doing this for the fun (if that’s what you call it) of it but is raising funds for four charities:

Heart Disease in children (Naomi Fardell Fund)

Support for those affected by rape or sexual abuse (Trust House Lincoln)

Support to Children to help them cope with bereavement (Childrens Bereavement Centre)

Getting and keeping children active through involvement in Sport (Inspire +)

If you want to support Claudette help raise as much money as possible you can donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/g2e-2019

We will provide a full report of Claudette’s journey later this month.

In the meantime, GOOD LUCK from everyone at Unite Professionals
