Cycle your purple socks off this October with by taking park in Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity’s brand new cycling challenge… Pedal It Purple!

As part of our annual #PlasterItPurple activities, we’ve launched Pedal It Purple – the cycling challenge with a purple twist raising funds for our young patients and their families at Scotland’s busiest children’s hospital.

Your fundraising matters now more than ever, as our vital services continue to be put under strain by the global pandemic. Our young patients, their families and the heroes who care for them are relying on your support.

How to take part?

Set yourself a distance from our three challenges and start your online fundraising page. Choose from:

  • Lands’ End to John O’Groats – 874 miles
  • Scottish Borders to John O’Groats – 320 miles
  • Glasgow to Edinburgh – 50 miles

From 1st October, saddle up and see how long it takes you to reach your target. Don’t forget to sport your purple gear with pride when you’re on the road – it could be your purple charity top, purple socks (to really cycle your socks off) or even purple face paint.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Pedal It Purple are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disappointment.
