My story

[p][b]WE DID IT! - [/b]Thank you to everyone for your support! [/p][p]After 20 weeks of running, walking and cycling The Favela Foundation have finally made it to Rio in time for Brazil's Independence Day. Although we won't be dancing in the street, or sharing a Caipirinha on the Copacabana the team would like to thank everyone who has shared our campaign, and donated their money and their KMs to this challenge. [/p][p]Brazil continues to be one of the most hard hit countries during the COVID-19 pandemic, and with your support we will able to continue deliver essential support to people living in the the favela communities.[/p][p]We couldn't do it without you! Lots of love, Patrick, Kanav, Flavia, Matt and Rebecca xx[/p][p][b]Virtual Race: ROAD 2 RIO![/b][/p][p]On 18th April 2020, The Favela Foundation Team had planned to take part in a Spartan Beast Obstacle Race, however this has sadly had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, today the team will launch a new virtual challenge:[b][i] ROAD 2 RIO where we will collectively travel the 9,272km distance from London to Rio de Janeiro. [/i][/b][/p][p]The team will walk, run, cycle and skip our way through this lock-down, and log our distance weekly so you can join up on our virtual journey. [b]WISH US LUCK! [/b][/p][p][img][/img][/p][p][b]*****[/b][/p][p]In November 2019 Flavia Franco joined the board of trustees at The Favela Foundation - and what better way to welcome her to the team than to sign her up to a Spartan Beast! [/p][p]This half-marathon, obstacle-mud race is going to challenge us all, and should hopefully be a LOT of fun! [/p][p]Find out more about the charity [url=https://www.thefavelafoundation.org/]here[/url]. But why should you donate?[/p][p][b]Direct Impact [/b]- The charity is run by volunteers and we have very low running costs. Your donation will almost exclusively go to the people that need it - that is special.[/p][p][b]Excellent Projects[/b] - We have a track record of running and supporting pragmatic projects that make a difference in some of Brazil's poorest areas.[/p][p]Donations of any size are hugely appreciated.[/p][p][img][/img][/p]
