The Prize

Whether you have previously ridden the Olympic Velodrome, or have it on your cycling ‘to do list’, no velodrome cycling experience quite matches the Legacy 300 days hosted by a GB Cycling Gold Medallist.

With events safely delivered since Autumn 2020, this unique experience lasts 3.5 hours with all equipment provided, you get an intensive training session under the guidance of the expert coaches and the 75 minute track session culminates in a fun competition. Whether a 250 metre dash for glory or a 1000 metre individual pursuit both will generate your name on the Olympic scoreboard as you compete with fellow riders on this shared experience. Wherever you finish, you get a medal presented by an actual Olympic Gold Medallist and a photo signed by the athlete capturing that once in a lifetime moment.

The session culminates in a Q and A with the host medal winner. Previous hosts have included Dani Rowe, Phil Hindes, Callum Skinner, Elinor Barker, Shanaze Reade and your gold medallist will be drawn from the ranks of the GB pursuit and sprint squads. Everyone goes home with exclusive event medals and signed memorabilia from the host athlete plus professional photos to give you an awesome social media timeline. The event will be delivered to the Covid-19 guidelines of the day and therefore maybe subject to slight alterations.

The Cause

Ava Helene Atkinson was born on May 26, 2014, but because she was born so early, she experienced many health issues.

Ava was moved to the neo-natal unit where she was put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Hours later, Ava’s condition had not improved, and after discussions with the consultant it was decided that due to the severity of the health issues she had, we as parents had to make the most devastating decision of our lives, together with the care team, to withdraw treatment. Minutes after coming off the ventilator Ava passed away peacefully with her family around her.

Whilst at the hospital we were given a keepsake box in which we were able to have memories of Ava. These precious memories are there for us to look at and cherish. Her keepsake box has brought comfort to us all, so much so that we have decided we would like to put together our own memory boxes for other parents who have suffered the loss of a child.

We have decided to make these keepsake boxes ourselves and hope that these boxes will be looked at for years to come.
