The Ride4Bonim sponsored 100km bike ride took place Sunday 24th June from Deeside, Wales to Manchester, raising over £200,000 for Aim Habonim, a Jewish school for Special Needs children.
Two years ago Ride4Bonim took place for its very first time. On that occasion, 110 cyclists raised an amazing total of £155,000 for Aim Habonim. This year, 128 riders signed up to take part in the 100 km (62 miles) challenge with an ambitious target of £200,000 for the school. In 2016 the money raised was used to purchase a plot of land, next to the current school location, and this year the monies collected will be used to fund the construction of a new state-of-the-art building that will cater for the growing needs of the School.
The efficiently planned route was managed by Tri360, where the riders were guided safely along the route with only some minor bike repairs needed along the way. Efficient marshals were stationed along the whole route to provide food and drink for the riders, as well as organised pit-stops provided at regular intervals to allow for rest and refreshments.
The project received generous corporate sponsorship’s from Sector Security Services being the Platinum Sponsor. Other Sponsors included Reich Insurance, Clarity Doors and Windows, Merco Facilities Services and The Eye Site.
