We are delighted to welcome Sidley as the new title sponsor of London Revolution!
Sidley Austin LLP is an international law firm with offices based around the globe, with a strong history in fundraising and supporting well-being initiatives, this new partnership will allow Sidley to continue supporting the mental and physical well-being of its team, clients, and people living and working in London.
Who are Sidley?
With more than 2000 lawyers located in 20 offices around the globe, Sidley is a premier legal adviser for clients across a spectrum of industries. Sidley opened its doors in London nearly 50 years ago and now has more than 300 lawyers and professional staff working in the city. Over the last 50 years, Sidley has been involved in many fundraising initiatives to support London-based causes, Sidley London Revolution is a continuation of this great work and will help thousands of cyclists improve their physical and mental health, whilst also raising funds for a diverse range of charities.
A Partnership that Supports Mental and Physical Well-Being
Sidley and the London Revolution team share a common goal, supporting people to help them be the best version of themselves and realise that More Is In You. Sidley London Revolution allows people from all backgrounds to challenge themselves whilst improving their mental and physical health. At its core, cycling is still seen as physical activity, but the growing need to find better modes of transports in city locations brings a sharper focus on cycling as a mode of transport. Sidley London Revolution will encourage more people to hop on their bikes and realise that cycling around their city is not just a great way to stay fit, but a highly efficient form of transport too.
Fundraising for Charities
With a strong history of fundraising, Sidley is also proud to be supporting YMCA London City and North. YMCA is the oldest and largest youth charity in the world and the money raised through Sidley London Revolution will enable YMCA London City and North to support vulnerable young people so they can play, perform and perfect their skills. With Sidley’s support, hundreds of cyclists will also take to the roads, fundraising for a diverse range of charities from across the UK, last year alone the event raised over £282,107.
Threshold Sports and Sidley are excited about the opportunities this partnership will create, Thomas Thesing, Sidley’s office managing partner in London, said: “Sidley is proud to support London Revolution in its mission to help people and companies to achieve greater things, and we embrace this opportunity to join with them in promoting healthy mind, body and spirit across our city. “We are keen to enable our 300+ lawyers and professional staff here to participate in the race and explore the beauty and diversity of London alongside their colleagues and families.”
Nick Tuppen, CEO of Threshold Sports added “We are hugely excited to welcome Sidley as title partner of the London Revolution in 2022. The pandemic has put individuals and organisations under enormous pressure, and this is a great example of a company moving from words to action with their commitments around fundraising, community engagement, and wellbeing.”
“Cycling the full 250km loop around London over a weekend is an unforgettable challenge and we can’t wait to welcome Team Sidley to the start-line on the 1st October.
