One of the core foundations of an event like Ark to Arc is getting good local businesses to sponsor us and t would seem that in 2017 we have lucked out with all our sponsors, especially the main event sponsor Merit Group.
Not only have they supported us financially and supplied their very own rider in the shape of Colin Fanning; but the entire team has been on hand to help promote the ride and get stuck in to help us raise as much money as we can for Ark Cancer Centre and Bike 4 Cancer.
Now, with the ride just over a week away, they are at it again!
The Merit team have decided that they want to join us in spirit and will be riding the 265-miles on their in-house static cycling machine as we cycle to Paris. The team will take it in turns over the four days to make sure they ride the same distance.
Craig Killick, one of the Ark Rider organisers, says it best:
“The guys at Merit have once again shown their dedication as the event sponsor. Not just by writing a cheque, but by wholeheartedly entering into the spirit of what we are trying to achieve. And, it’s the whole team getting involved at Merit, which just goes to show the spirit of them as a company.”
You can donate online to the Merit Group team, and follow them on social media, with all money they are raising going to Ark Cancer Centre.
