If you’re looking for something new in 2014 and fancy a challenge, why not sign up to Velocity.
Back for its second year on Saturday 22 March, City in the Community will be taking over the velodrome for 24 hours only and want local fans to don their helmets and enter their own team pursuit to help raise money for CITC and its chosen charities.
Your sponsorship money can help support projects delivered by CITC like Kickz.
Kickz is a project backed by the Premier League that offers positive activities for young people aged 13-19 years. The scheme also aims to break down barriers between the police and young people, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour and creating routes into volunteering, education and employment.
City in the Community deliver 15 sessions per week at seven different venues across Manchester, engaging with almost 700 participants each week. Activities include football, basketball, dance, boxing, self-defence, swimming, and music.
The latest addition to the project is set to start in February 2014 and will see regular boxing sessions delivered in partnership with Bob Shannon (Ricky Hatton’s coach) at Wright Robinson College.
As well as providing a fun and safe environment for these young people, CITC hold regular matches and tournament days across different areas of Manchester and compete against other Kickz teams from across the UK.
By getting on your bike, you can continue to make a difference to the communities of Manchester. Find out how you can get involved here.
