Kim's Track 100 Challenge

Kim's Track 100 Challenge
Hello, Kim here! I did it, all 100 miles! It took myself and John 10.5 hours to do, but we had some amazing support from the local community on the day. Thanks to everyone who donated via my justgiving page (still open) and to those who came out to the track to put in a few miles to support me along the way!     ----     I have raised £6000 in total for Eagle Radio Trust and Jigsaw School     ----     Thank you!

dunsfoldlogoI've always enjoyed cycling, and whenever I decide on a fundraising challenge, my bike always seems to come along! In the past I have completed the London to Brighton and also joined the Surrey Army Cadets for a few days on a 150 mile cycle across Surrey! 

I was home one evening talking about possibilities for the next challenge when the Track 100 idea came about! Thanks to the team at Dunsfold Park, home of Top Gear, on Friday 26th April 2013 I will cycle for 100 miles around the perimeter track, and whats more I'll do it in one day! Oh and then PG decided I should do my show at the same time!

I'm completing this challenge to benefit two local charities. One is the Eagle Radio Trust founded in July 2007 as a small charity trust providing an umbrella for the radio station's charity work in Surrey and Hampshire.

Barrie Funnell, trustee of Eagle Radio Trust explains more about the trust...

 
The other is Jigsaw School, based in Dunsfold its a school for children with autistic spectrum disorders, I've been a patron of the school since 2007.
