Prosperity Day is our annual charity fundraising event where corporate rivals go ‘head to head to head’ to #ventyourfury in a fast paced stationary cycling challenge. Using our brand new Wahoo KICKR bikes to complete a virtual stage of the Tour de France using 3D Race technology, teams of three will compete against each other to gain race day points to add to the all important fundraising total and top the podium.
Over the past 8 years, Prosperity Day has raised more than £135,000 for local charities. This year’s event, taking place at Prosperity 24/7 ‘s new waterfront headquarters will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey and the Jersey branch of Cancer Research UK.
Our target is to raise £24,700 (or just £1,400 per team) and 100% of the money raised will be split between these two benefiting charities. By supporting them, we will also assist the incredible fundraising efforts of some of our team members who have run, rowed and of course, cycled an incredible number of miles for two charities close to their hearts.
How you can get involved
We’re inviting up to eighteen corporate rival teams to hit the turbo trainer saddle on Friday 8 September 2023 for a fast paced 30 minute race using 3D race technology and take on a gruelling virtual stage of the Tour de France.
There are two ways to gain points and make it to the podium – race day performance and charity fundraising, so it’s not just about speed, the more money raised, the higher up the leader board each team goes.
