My story

[p]I'm cycling 2.6 marathons in a week for Global Care - a charity that supports the most vulnerable children and helps them access education and give them hope for the future.[/p][p]I've seen the incredible work of the charity first hand, met children, adults, families and whole communities whose lives have been changed through the work of local partners. During this pandemic, the poor, the outcast, disabled people - are the ones who suffer most. In countries where communities are without running water, no poor access to food or no money for food, no free healthcare, and live in overcrowded basic homes and communities - they have little resilience against coronavirus. Add to that the reduced income of all charities - including Global Care, and the situation is critical. [/p][p]Will you help me raise funds for Global Care so wherever possible our partners can take food, soap, hand-washing containers, masks and medical supplies to the poorest and most vulnerable families.[/p][p]I started cycling in week one of lockdown and managed 6km. I've been slowly increasing and cycling 3 times a week and reached about 40km a week. I'm challenging myself to cycle 2.6 marathons in a week. That's 26.2 miles (42.2km) x 2.6 which equals 68 miles or 109.7km. Starting on April 26th and ending by 2.06pm on Saturday 2nd May. Please support Global Care and the children they support. Thanks xxx[/p]
