Paola is taking part in The Legal & General Real Assets pedElle 2017 which is raising funds for Club Peloton
"I've always enjoyed doing long routes on my road bike, but never faced a similar challenge. 160 km a day is a big target to hit, and I'm very excited thinking about the level of performance I need to reach. At Karakusevic Carson Architects we are a bit of a cyclist community, and we've been talking about pedElle for a while, there are real fans of this event in my office, especially Paul.
This event will support Coram, a charity which has been helping vulnerable children to get a better future since 1739. The contributions gathered for my sponsorship will help Coram to run its voluntary adoption agency and to organize creative therapy projects for children, helping them recover from traumatic events.
In return I'll bring all your names with me from Porto to Lisbon. It's amazing to think I'm finally going to do it!"
Race Nation provides online registration and fundraising for mass participation events through our platform “SportsGiving”, helping to raise vital sums of money for many good causes. On all donations we charge a small fee of up to 5% of the donation (which includes card processing charges). We do not charge a fee on any Gift Aid claimed. This means that if you made a donation of £10 with Gift Aid (worth £2.50), the charity would receive a minimum of £12.00.
All donations made through SportsGiving are considered charitable gifts and are non-refundable.
SportsGiving and its partners and charities represented reserve the right to refuse to accept any donations and to refuse to supply goods or services to any individual without explanation.
When a donation is made through SportsGiving the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised use of your payment card is proved. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider and if a payment is made to SportsGiving on a stolen card, you must notify us immediately.
Online transactions are subject to a small fee levied by debit and credit card companies. These third party charges do not exceed 3.0% and are included within your donation. The organisers of the event are responsible for other bank charges.
By ticking the Gift Aid box, and providing your details, you are allowing us to treat your donations as a Gift Aid donation. If the donation is to be divided by multiple charities you understand that the Gift Aid claimed will also be split in the same proportions. You confirm that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
If this event is receiving charitable donations, I understand that my SportsGiving fundraising page is raising money for the nominated event charity (or charities).
I understand that my SportsGiving page is raising funds for the listed charity partners only, and any raised funds raised will be paid directly to the listed charity partners.
I also understand that I must not use my SportsGiving page to raise any funds for a charity not directly involved with the event to which I am registering.
