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 9 years, Prosperity Day has raised almost £160,000 for local charities. This year’s event, Prosperity Day’s tenth anniversary is taking place at Prosperity 24/7 ‘s new waterfront headquarters and will raise money for Jersey Hospice Care and Healing Waves.
Our 2024 target is the most ambitious one yet, to raise £40,000 and hit £200,000 total fundraising to mark our 10th anniversary (that’s just £2,000 per team). 100% of the monies raised will be split between the two benefiting charities – Jersey Hospice Care and Healing Waves.
How you can get involved
We’re inviting up to eighteen corporate rival teams to hit the turbo trainer saddle on Friday 6 September 2024 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.
If you want to #VentYourFury and go #HeadToHead to challenge yourself and raise funds for two amazing charities, then find out more here and sign up now.
- Select your team of three – we only need the details of one of your team members to start with. Teams can be male, female or mixed…and you can enter more than one team!

About the charities
Jersey Hospice Care is a specialist palliative care service and the island’s only hospice, providing holistic care for patients with any life limiting condition for 40 years. Services include Clinical Nurse Specialists who provide care at home, Day Hospice (currently suspended due to COVID-19) and the 12 bedded In Patient Unit, Therapy Services (including physiotherapy and complementary therapies) and Emotional Support and Bereavement Service. Jersey Hospice Care works in close partnership with other healthcare providers and is always keen to collaborate with others in the delivery of care.
Jersey Hospice Care is an independent charity and makes no charge to patients. It costs £16,400 a day to run the charity’s services. Funding for care services is thanks to the generosity of Islanders. This comes in the form of fundraising, donations and sales in our charity stores, as well as through the outstanding work of the small army of dedicated volunteers who give their time and their skills to keep the hospice running. jerseyhospicecare.com
Healing Waves enables individuals despite their condition and/or disability both neurological and physical to access the ocean in a safe way to participate in water sport activities. This is so they can experience the therapeutic benefits that the ocean holds for us all.
We offer Ocean Therapy through guided surf, paddle and flow sessions. These water sports are used as a vessel, helping our athletes to gain more self-confidence and communication skills, whilst providing therapy and respite for all. Water sports can stimulate the ‘stoke’ like feeling and can promote a sense of accomplishment and empowerment in our Athletes, whilst families, friends and carers cheer them on from the side lines. We encourage loved ones and carers to participate in sessions, helping to strengthen the (often strained) bonds which are vital for healthy relationships.
Ultimately, it is our aim that our Athletes and their families are treated to a well-deserved day of relaxation, fun and respite. Each session is a valuable and beautiful experience where there are no labels and where all who get involved are Athletes! healingwaves.org.je
