3,480Km | SMA Data

3,480Km | SMA Data Select took on the equivalent of the Tour de France on spin bikes to help fund the fight against two potentially deadly conditions, namely brain tumours and mitochondrial disease. 36 participants clipped in to raise funds for the Peter Jones Foundation, supporting Brain Tumour Research and The Lily Foundation, and have raised more than £4,650 so far. Over four days from 29 July to 1 August 2019, four riders pedalled for an hour each over nine-hour daily sessions on four bikes. We notched up a distance of 4,397KM against their target of 3,480KM – the same distance as the Tour de France, inspired by 2019 being the 100th anniversary of the Tour de France’s yellow jersey. Each hourly session saw one rider win the yellow jersey and the three riders who achieved the greatest distances standing on a podium to receive a medal. Taking part alongside Data Select colleagues, were employees from Brandpath, Truly, Jessops, PJ Investment Group and PRS&, all also based at Network House in Marlow, as well as representatives from Data Select brand partners, including Samsung, Doro, TCL, HAMMER and OPPO. Fergal Donovan CEO for Data Select, said: “Le Tour de Select was a great opportunity to bring the businesses at Network House together as well as taking on a big challenge for two very worthwhile causes, whilst having fun with our brand partners. “We are very grateful to Gym Jedi Consultancy for providing the spin bikes and to The Marlow Club who provided free access to all employees with the chance to take part in classes and use the gym all week! We are really thankful to everyone who took part in our recent challenge to help raise this amazing amount which is nudging closer to our target of £5,000.” Carol Robertson, Brain Tumour Research said “We would like to thank everyone who took part, helping to raise much-needed funds and especially Data Select for organising this amazing challenge. ” Sam Tinson, The Lily Foundation, said “This was a fantastic event and a valuable opportunity to raise awareness about mitochondrial disease. Our sincere thanks to the Data Select team and everyone who helped make this event possible. Together we can make a difference.” Delivered with in aid of PAGE 6
