Taj Mahal Cycling Challenge (CHALLENGE)


A team of 29 cyclists completed a 400km challenge across India to raise vital funds and awareness for Teens Unite.

At the forefront of the team was the charity’s CEO, Debbie Pezzani, and she was joined by Ambassadors of Teens Unite, Georgia Toffolo and Dr Alex George, as well as 26 supporters; many of whom live locally to the charity’s offices in Broxbourne. Not only did Alex cycle the challenge, he was the professional medic on hand throughout the trip.

Together, they have raised an incredible profit of £64,177.68 for Teens Unite. The challenge took place on 7th – 17th November, where the team cycled between 40km – 108km each day.

The overseas challenge began in the historic city of Jaipur and ended at the Taj Mahal. Throughout the trip, the team gave back to the local communities they visited. At schools they handed goodie bags to the children; including toiletries and colouring items. The team also planted trees and supplied a solar light to local villages.

Debbie Pezzani, CEO and Co-Founder of Teens Unite has said: “It was the experience of a lifetime! The team did amazingly well – it was a tough challenge, but we kept the young people we’re supporting at the forefront of our minds to keep us pedalling. The money and awareness raised will make such a difference to our work and we’re truly grateful to everyone who completed the challenge.”
