My story

[p]Hello - thank you for visiting my page! I am racing the Swift from South Africa to Nairobi by Bicycle, a 10,000KM journey in 90 days. That is 125km per day with 10 days spare for difficulties - pretty tough considering the gruelling conditions![/p][p]I start from cape town on the 14th of March and aim to finish on the 11th of June, please donate whenever you can![/p] [p]I am aiming to complete this challenge in order to raise money for Wildlife conservation charities. Save the Rhino  and the The TerraMar Project. Both of these charities I believe are essential for the well being of the planet. We need to conserve as much wildlife as we can before it all becomes too late. [/p] [p][lt]br /[gt] I am asking you all then, please to share and follow my journey and to [url=http://www.racingtheswift.com/donate.html]give as much as you can[/url] so that we can all help to conserve wildlife, the ocean, rhinos, and especially the magnificent Swift.[/p][p]Please go to my website and blog www.racingtheswift.com for all my updates along the way and full information on my charities.[/p]

Job 12:7-10 Ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the Hand of the Lord has done this. Alleluia
