Ride the Nation is PwC UK's charity cycle challenge, the inaugural event was held in May 2015. The event aims to physically connect all 30 offices in the UK network by means of a cycling relay, including offices in the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland. Ride the Nation 2015 remains the single largest event of its kind the UK firm has embarked upon, raising over £150,000 for The PwC Foundation and charities local to each office, with over 700 staff taking part on their bikes with support from all grades of staff in all offices nationwide.
The event was conceived and continues to be organised and run solely by PwC staff to demonstrate the firms ethos of doing the right thing in our communities and what can be achieved when we work together as One Firm.
"Ride the Nation has rapidly grown to be the largest fundraising event the UK firm has ever put on, it not only demonstrated the power of our firm but that we can make a real difference to the communities we work and live in."
