Epwin Window Systems’ Gerald Allen joins GM Fundraising’s From Russia With Hope team challenge

Marketing Manager Gerald Allen

Epwin Window Systems’ Marketing Manager Gerald Allen will be one of a team of 18 men taking part in the From Russia With Hope challenge organised by GM Fundraising. The challenge will raise funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices and will involve cycling 2,730 miles through 10 countries in 12 days in June 2019.

Gerald says: “I was motivated to take part because of the Hope House cause. It’s very humbling and emotional to see the work they do, and taking 12 days out, seeing countries I’ve never visited is just a bonus.”

The team will be covering over 280 miles each day as they cycle from St Petersburg, Russia, through Finland, into the Arctic Circle, through Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales, before returning into England and their final destination of Hope House in Oswestry.

While Gerald is a keen runner and regularly runs 30 miles in a weekend, cycling is a relatively new sport for him. He says: “I’ve never done anything like this before and would say I was a casual cyclist at best. I’ve been getting out on the bike regularly in preparation, though, and getting some miles in.”

Gerald concludes: “I’ve been fortunate enough to have been involved in a few GM Fundraising events before and they are always great fun. I’m looking forward to a life changing experience with a great group of committed people from within the industry to raise a lot of money for a cause that is very close to us at Epwin Window Systems.”

GM Fundraising raises around £130,000 every year for Hope House Children’s Hospices in Oswestry and Conwy through a variety of events including sporting challenges and gala dinners.
