News & blog Latest news Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge registration extended Registration for our Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge has been extended until the end of the October! The Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge is a great personal challenge, but it also serves a very important purpose. We urgently need your help to raise £150,000 for a new 3D ultrasound scanner for the Fetal Medicine Unit at St Michael's Hospital. As a specialist unit covering the South West and South Wales, the dedicated team of doctors and specialist midwives work to detect conditions such as rhesus disease and twin to twin transfusion syndrome, that, unless diagnosed and treated with the aid of sophisticated equipment, put babies with these conditions at a high risk of dying inside the womb. Whether you're interested in signing up as an individual or part of a group; or aiming to cajole your colleagues into getting a corporate team together, we often encounter similar queries from our participants regarding levels of cycling proficiency, the logistics of the trip, what type of cycling kit is needed and how the fundraising total will be met. We've collated some FAQs to help address some of these queries and concerns. If you're on the verge of signing up, but still have some questions, take a look at the FAQs and please don't hesitate to get in touch on [email protected] or 0117 927 7120 to speak to one of the team. Our Fundraising Team will be here to help you on every step of your fundraising journey from coming up with fun money raising ideas, to supporting your events and, of course, providing bucket loads of enthusiasm! Once you get started, you'll be amazed how generous your friends, family and complete strangers will be when they know you're fundraising to support our city centre hospitals. We've never had anyone fail to meet the Bristol to Paris fundraising target, and we wish you every luck!
