2020 UK Red Empire State 500

Our biggest and most ambitious fundraising adventure, the UK Red Empire State 500 is an epic 500-plus mile cycle ride from the spectacular Niagara Falls to the world’s most famous city, New York

Leaving the falls on Sunday May 3, 23 brave riders, including seven Rugby League internationals, will spend the next six days plotting a challenging off-road route along the Erie Canal, the Catskill mountains and the Appalachian Trail as they make their way to Manhattan.

Last year’s ride raised £40,000 for the charity: our goal this year is to raise in excess of £50,000, and to do that we need your support.

Every pound we raise helps us make a positive difference to people involved at every level of the sport, from its heroes, the players, through to the men involved in our health projects and the youngsters at grassroots level.

You can sponsor any of the riders individually, or simply the ride itself, via our bespoke team Justgiving page: it’s easy, cost effective and if you agree to Gift Aid, the tax man adds on 20 per cent of your donation at no extra cost to you.

Please give what you can: our Justgiving team page is here.
