We are delighted to be supporting Sport for Freedom this year and their event Cycle for Freedom. Sport for Freedom was established to prevent vulnerable individuals at risk of human trafficking and to reintegrate survivors back into society using the power of sport.
The charity was set up by Sky Sport's Julia Immonen her first fund raising activity was a record breaking achievement of rowing 3000 miles unaided across the Atlantic Ocean in just a 7 meter by 2 meter rowing boat from the Canaries to Barbados in 2011/12. Joined by four women, the Row for Freedom crew broke the record for the fastest women's crossing and established a record for being the first female crew of 5 ever to row the Atlantic.
This year she will cycle from Liverpool to London via five cities which were or are now hubs for human trafficking and slavery and we hope you can join us and help raise money on the final day as part of the Cycle for Freedom Finale.
On the 18th October Sport for Freedom is asking everyone to join them on on the Cycle for Freedom Finale and raise money together as part of global Anti Slavery Day. The fully supported ride leaves the legendary Houses of Parliament and heads out towards Surrey following the footsteps of the 2012 Olympic Road Race route before heading back to London.
