Virtual Racing UK is an event business that organises Virtual Distance and Fitness Challenges and donates 20% of the entry fee to charitable organisations and not for profits.
Last week, I had the pleasure of receiving an email from the Virtual Racing UK’s Director, Sam, who said: ‘I feel very passionately about your cause and have been trying to find a charitable organisation exactly like you for a while!’ Her passion, positivity and enthusiasm shone through and it was such a pleasure to speak to her about the generous plan she had to support the work that we do.
Virtual Racing UK launched in June 2017 and has so far raised over £40,000 for various charities including: Mental Health Foundation, Marie Curie, Born Free, Ellie’s Friends and Cherished Gowns UK.
The business was founded by Sam and her sister and as a result of a nomination from a member of their team they have chosen to support The Red Box Project. We are over the moon to be appointed as their nominated charitable organisation for one of their monthly challenges: Huff & Puff 9 3/4 (June).
The great thing about virtual racing events is that they are accessible to all and allow entrants to complete the distances in one stint or across the month of the challenge.
A whooping 20% of every entry fee from this race will go towards supporting projects in delivering on the ground support to young people in educational settings across the UK.
Please take a look at their website to find out more about the fantastic events they offer.
You can also visit them on their Facebook page.
A huge thank you to the Virtual Racing UK team for the support you have given to us and so many inspirational charitable organisations who do such brilliant work in their communities.
