My story

[p]We set off tomorrow cycling from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast across Costa Rica a distance of 350km with 3500m elevation. Yes it will be a challenge but a great adventure too & all in aid of a very good cause. [/p][p]Congenital heart conditions are the most common type of birth defects. One in four babies will congenital heart problems will have a critical heart condition and require urgent surgery. It is hard to imagine the stress experienced by families at that time. ECHO provides continuous support to parents and carers from prenatal diagnosis, throughout their child’s life, wherever or whenever they need it most. [/p][p]Thank you very much for those of you who have already supported me. I will keep a blog on face book and email with (hopefully) lots of lovely photos. ~[/p]
