My story

[p]Hi, welcome to my fundraising page! I decided to follow my impulse and do something completely crazy this year: Riding the Mongol Derby, 1000k across the Mongolian Steppe. - This meant, of course, that I have to come out of the closet to those of my friends who weren't really aware that I ride horses. Don't let that fool you, though: My biggest passion in life is still PHASE and the work this organisation does in Nepal! It's a great priviledge to be part of this, and although I am riding in the Mogol Derby for entirely selfish reasons (and am funding it entirely myself), I still hope it will raise plenty of money for PHASE! - and Cool Earth, of course. [/p][p]Thank you so much!! - and wish me luck![/p][p]Gerda :-)[/p][p] Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]

What a fantastic adventure, Gerda. It will be just what you need after a difficult few months. Never mind getting in, just make sure that you come out again in one piece. Be thinking of you. Best of luck.

It sounds as though this will be a great adventure Gerda; I'm sure you'll enjoy it once you ( and your trusty steed), get into your stride!! Anyway, t.c. and best of luck!
