    Story

    On Sunday 10th April, as part of the BM Ride, Chris Jepson & Rory Finn will cycle 50km on the very rarely closed roads of Brighton & Hove ahead of the Brighton Marathon.

    They are fundraising for Trans Can Sport, a not-for-profit Brighton & Hove project dedicated to transforming the wellbeing of trans people through physical activity.

    Trans people want to engage in activities, both sporting and social, like everyone else, and Trans Can Sport was formed to provide a safe space to allow these things to happen in a supportive, friendly and non-competitive environment.

    Chris is an award-winning portrait and documentary photographer, while Rory is a health worker for the Terrence Higgins Trust. We are both passionate about diversity and inclusion and support the work of Trans Can Sport who want to resolve and avoid some of the barriers that stop trans people accessing sport.

    Trans Can Sport create a safe space for trans people to use freely, and provide a supportive environment that allows people to connect with their bodies in a positive way.

    The mental health benefits of sport and exercise for everyone are well known, and in the words of one of their participants:

    I no longer feel alone and don't have to worry about being self-conscious in front of people who don't understand why I might look different. I'm looking forward to taking part in as many of the future activities as I can.

      Hello friends! Well, despite the 6am start and the frost on the grass at Preston Park (yes, really!), we made it around the 50km course of the Brighton Marathon BM50 bike ride and picked up some bling for our sideboard. What's more, the photos are coming in and we don't look like we are dying! We are thrilled to have raised over £700 so far for Trans Can Sport with a very generous direct donation from Pride Sports, a UK #LGBTIQ+ sports development & inclusion organisation. There's still time to get us to our target, so please share! xx

      Yay- we made it! We just cycled 100km in Lycra for Trans Can Sport (50k each!) - I'm off to massage Finn's thighs now, apparently that's part of the job. More pics soon. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported so far - Just Giving page is open for another 30 days so there's still time to spread the word and raise more for this fantastic grass-roots organisation. C&F xx

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
