Bristol Rugby Community Foundation is a registered charity and organises, oversees and partakes in a number of fundraising events and activities throughout the year.

From Break The Cycle, the gruelling 110-mile cycling challenge, to charitable runners taking on the Bristol Half Marathon - fundraising forms a huge part of the Foundation's day-to-day work and allows it to continue its award-winning work in the community. 

For example, more than 200 cyclists saddled up for Break The Cycle 2016 in July, raising over £30,000 in the process. 

Setting off from Ashton Gate Stadium at 7.30am, the hardy cyclists were sent on their way by a guard of honour formed of Joe Joyce, Nick Koster, Mark Sorenson, Gaston Cortes and Jack O’Connell of Bristol Rugby.

The route saw the cyclists leave Bristol and head out towards Bath, before pedalling through Tetbury and on to Kingsholm Stadium, home of Gloucester Rugby.

From there, they cycled through Frocester, Leyhill, Old Down and Almonsbury and then on to the Portway, before finishing back at Ashton Gate.
