Children’s charity Action Medical Research announces partnership with UK’s No.1 online cycle and tri-sport retailer, Wiggle, for its third annual Champions of CycleSport dinner on Thursday 22 November. This star-studded event celebrates Action Medical Research’s passion for all things cycling. Some of the biggest names on two wheels will be in attendance including Chris Boardman MBE, Sarah Storey, Joanna Roswell, Ben Swift, Jody Cundy and Dani King and a whole host of other champions will join over 450 guests at The Hurlingham Club, a prestigious members-only club in central London.
Wiggle serves customers in over 90 countries worldwide with FREE delivery and is committed to making cycling accessible for every level of rider by providing the biggest selection of products and brands at excellent value through its award-winning website.
Adam Ryan, Head of Product Marketing at Wiggle says: “Wiggle is very pleased to be supporting Action Medical Research with its Champions of CycleSport Dinner. Action Medical Research is an incredible charity funding vital research for babies and children affected by disease and disability. We look forward to using our mutual love of cycling as a participation sport to help raise awareness and funds amongst our customers for this great charity and the fantastic work they do. We hope this is the start of a long and prosperous partnership for years to come.”
David Graham, Head of Community Fundraising, says “Action Medical Research is delighted to have Wiggle on board as event sponsors for its very special evening celebrating all that is great about UK cycling. We are very excited about the possibilities the relationship can bring to both the event and the charity.”
Last year Action Medical Research’s Champions of CycleSport dinner was attended by the UK’s cycling elite including Mark Cavendish, Chris Boardman, David Millar and Graeme Obree and raised a fantastic £100,000 to help sick babies, children with disabilities and those suffering from a rare disease. Guests enjoyed the chance to mingle with their heroes and bid on a whole host of money-can’t-buy cycling and desirable items in the live and silent auctions.
Money raised by the charity helps fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children. Research currently being supported by Action Medical Research includes work around meningitis, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and premature birth, as well as some very rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
