This June, London's best known Sunday League team take on a huge challenge. As Euro 2016 kicks off in France, 14 players from Huracan FC London are raising money for the Huracan Foundation by riding from London to Marseille on folding Brompton Bikes!

The challenge: This June, London's best known Sunday League Football team take on their biggest challenge so far. As Euro 2016 kicks off in France, 14 players from London's Huracan FC are riding from London to Marseille in just 7 days... on folding Brompton Bikes kindly supplied by the Brompton Bike Hire Scheme.

El reto: Este junio, el equipo amateur más conocido de Londres se enfrienta al reto más difícil de su historia. Mientras empieza la Eurocopa 2016 en Francia, 14 jugadores de Huracan FC London viajan desde Londres a Marsella siete días…en bici plegable 'Brompton'– gracias a la generosidad del  ‘Brompton Bike Hire Scheme’

Their goal: To get to Marseille in time for England's opening game and in doing so raise over £14,000 to support 5 innovative and sustainable projects around the world over the next 2 years.

La meta: Llegar a Marsella antes del primer partido de la selección inglesa, y por lo tanto recaudar más de $20.000 para apoyar cinco proyectos innovadores y sustentables por el mundo durante los próximos dos años.

The Huracan Foundation, set up by the team, support teachers working in low income communities to set up and run educational projects that use football as a tool to transform their communities.

The Huracan Foundation, fundado por el equipo, apoya a profesores, trabajando en comunidades de bajos recursos, en organizar proyectos educativos que utilizan el fútbol para transformer esas comunidades.

Since 2012, they have impacted the lives of 300 children in 6 countries, and have been recognised by FIFA, Sky, and the BBC for their efforts. The team, with over 70,000 Facebook followers, have always captured the imagination of the public and this year they have taken on a seemingly impossible physical challenge.

Desde 2012 han impactado a 300 niños en seis paises, y le han elogiado FIFA, SKY y la BBC por sus esfuerzos. El equipo, con más de 70.000 fanáticos en el Facebook, han capturado la imaginación del público – y este año se enfrienta a un reto físico aparentemente imposible.

On their chances of success, team member and daily Brompton commuter Howie said: "The bikes are typically used for 15-30 minute commuting trips. We will be in the saddle for up to 8 hours a day over the course of the week - it's not going to be easy but I think we will definitely turn some heads!"

Howie Mantell – miembro del equipo y usuario diario de ‘Brompton’ – explica que ‘normalmente estas bicis se usan para trayectos de 15-30 minutos por la ciudad. Vamos a estar al sillín hasta ocho horas al día durante toda la semana – no va a ser facil pero seguramente vamos a llamar bastante atención!
