The Charities

The Tour de Greaves is aiming to raise money for two fantastic sports charities, both of which have an incredible record in helping young people achieve their sporting dreams.

Here's a little bit more about them...

Founded in 1976, SportsAid is a UK charity that helps the next generation of British sport stars at the start of their careers when their parents are their only other means of support.
The charity helps these athletes by giving them cash awards to help them meet the cost of training and competing.
The charity's extensive alumni stretches across the generations with Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, Sir Mo Farah, Baroness Grey-Thompson, Dame Sarah Storey, Sir Steve Redgrave, Dame Katherine Grainger and Daley Thompson CBE all stand-out names.
In fact, at the the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games two-thirds of the British athletes were SportsAid alumni, winning 20 Olympic and 27 Paralympic gold medals between them.

The Rayner Foundation was set up in memory of former British professional cyclist Dave Rayner, who was tragically killed outside a nightclub in Bradford in 1994. 
Its aim is to provide funding and support to help young cyclists spend the season over on the continent learning their trade at the sharp end of racing.
A good number of supported riders have gone onto World Tour, Women’s World Tour, Olympic and Commonwealth glory.
Among it’s many success stories are the likes of David Millar and Charly Wegelius – who were among the first recipients back in 1996 – Adam Yates, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Hannah Barnes, Nikki Harris (now Nikki Brammeier), Molly Weaver and Dan McLay.
The list goes on. To find out more about The Rayner Foundation click here or follow @DaveRaynerFund on Twitter.
