Prepare to be amazed at ‘The Greatest Show’ on Thursday 23rd April at the home of Concorde, Aerospace Museum, Bristol – all in aid of The 401 Challenge ‘USA 2020’!
Guests and VIP’s will be treated to spectacular aerial artists and breathtaking trapeze acts, fabulous food and drink, hosted by our very own Bristol born Joe Sims.
The evening is in aid of The USA 2020 Challenge which aims to raise £1 million to support UK and US charities which use the power of sport and physical activity to help improve people’s health and wellbeing.
Following on from the success of the original 401 Challenge in 2015 that saw Ben Smith run 401 marathons in 401 days raising over £330,00 for two charities and being honoured with a Pride of Britain Award and the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award in 2016, he is now taking on a new epic challenge…USA2020! In a nutshell, Ben will be running one marathon in each of the 50 US state capitals and then cycling between them… this equates to more than 14,000 miles in just 104 days!
Please also note that Ben Smith would be delighted to come along as part of either the Platinum or Gold package and deliver an inspiring talk for up to 1 hour including Q&A to your staff, colleagues or customers. This will need to be arranged at a mutually convenient time and only expenses will be charged (usual cost is £3000 plus VAT, this will be included in your sponsorship fee).
Ben’s talks are relatable, personal and engaging. You will hear about his life experiences where he was severely bullied at school which had a profound impact on his confidence, self esteem and identity. You will hear about what inspired him to run 401 Marathons in 401 days and why he is preparing for his second epic fundraising event in July, the USA 2020 Challenge. Ben was recognised after his 401 Challenge and was awarded many accolades including Pride of Britain and BBC Sports Personality Helen Rollason Award in 2016, you can see his story here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/sports-personality/38304281.
