We are delighted to offer you the chance to take on

the Challenge of a Lifetime & Succeed! 

This July (19th – 25th ), join us for the trip & challenge of a life time as you cycle from ocean to sea across sunny Spain, from San Sebastian to Barcelona and tackling some impressive Pyrenees peaks!
You might not be quite out ‘running the bulls’ in Pamplona but you’ll definitely feel alive when the view of the magnificent city of Barcelona comes into sight as you near the end of this amazing 5-day cycling challenge!!
When you dip your toes in the Mediterranean Sea, consider the mission complete!

Not only will you have achieved this huge accomplishment but you will be helping others at the same time!
For each day you are cycling you will be giving a person and their family one night of precious end of life care.
All of the proceeds from your fundraising for this challenge will benefit our Nurses for Night Care Service.


Get Inspired. Get Fit. Challenge Yourself!
