While many of his customers are enjoying a relaxing day on the golf course this Sunday, Stewart Golf CEO Mark Stewart will be taking part in the Prudential RideLondon 100 mile cycle challenge to raise money for Sparks Charity.
Stewart Golf have a long association with Sparks, ever since the charity assisted with organising their first golf day in 2007. As well as taking part in a number of challenges including triathlons, Tough Mudders and cycling, Stewart Golf also supplies trolleys for auction at Sparks fundraising dinners. Stewart Golf also sponsor the ‘Sparks Celebrity Order of Merit’ which takes place each year at their numerous golf days. Over the years, the partnership has raised tens of thousands of pounds for the pioneering children’s medical research that Sparks fund.
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside, taking in the gruelling Leith Hill and Box Hill climbs before finishing at Buckingham Palace.
CEO Mark Stewart said, “When the call came from Sparks to take part I couldn’t say no, despite having only a few months to prepare for it. I took part in 2013 as part of a series of challenges, it’s an iconic event and one of the hardest challenges I have ever taken on. The support of my friends, family, colleagues, suppliers and customers is greatly appreciated.”
