Mayor launches Ride to Rio

Chesterfield’s mayor, Councillor Steve Brunt, has launched the Ride to Rio initiative at Chesterfield Borough Council’s sports centres.

Users of Queen’s Park Sports Centre and the Healthy Living Centre in Staveley can take part in the virtual charity journey of 5,820 miles from Chesterfield to Rio costing £2 per person.

All proceeds will be donated to the mayor’s charities; the Macmillan Cancer Support Appeal for the new Macmillan Cancer Centre at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and Accessible Derbyshire.

Entrants will be given a log diary to add their distance each time they visit and this can be cycling (spinning), running, swimming or simply walking. They will also be entered into a prize draw.
