This October, barristers and solicitors from across the UK will take part in Breast Cancer Now’s annual charity cycle race, Tour de Law, fundraising for Breast Cancer Now’s world-class research and life-changing care.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tour de Law (click for more) is back with a twist as lawyers and barristers will come together to help those living with breast cancer at a time when they need the charity most.
Tour de Law takes place from the 12th – 18th October 2020.
Barristers’ chambers and law firms are being encouraged to enter their team(s) of up to 10 participants and can enter unlimited number of teams, taking part on road bikes, static bikes at home or in the gym, or even on Santander Cycles.
Breast Cancer Now is able to arrange static bikes in the office, for those who wish.
Since its inception in 2012, Tour de Law has raised over £600,000 for the charity, with a total of 136 teams taking part. This year, legal teams will come together to cycle the furthest between 12 and 18 October, raise the most and be crowned Tour de Law Champion 2020.
In order to adapt and innovate during the pandemic, participants will track their distance through Strava, linked to their team’s JustGiving page that tracks and automatically updates both the distance and fundraising.
The Coronavirus outbreak represents an unprecedented situation for all, but this continues to be an extremely difficult and uncertain time for those affected by breast cancer. As the UK’s first comprehensive breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now are here to support anyone affected by the disease. Facing the financial impact of the outbreak, the charity needs your support, now more than ever before. All money raised at Tour de Law will enable Breast Cancer Now to continue to provide research, care and support to all those affected by breast cancer.
