This incredible amount of money allowed Child.org to take our HealthStart programme to the next level.
Child.org have now recruited a small team of smart young Kenyans to help them roll the programme out; and are in a position to reach far more than the 10,000 children they’re already helping.
Your dedication to training and fundraising for a ride like this can have a real impact on the communities Child.org work with, and help us to keep on removing obstacles for those who really need it.
It will be the hardest thing you do, but so so fun and totally worth it.
All the kids come to the side of the road and wave at you and cheer you on. It’s really awesome.
My favourite day was probably day 3: the hill day. Big hills, very hard work, lots of great morale building.
Following the last ride in Ghana, our generous riders donated the bikes they used on the ride to the Shape Lives Foundation.
The bikes are already being used to promote health and fitness in the local community, and Shape Lives have plans to raise substantial income by renting the bikes to tourists.
By converting the bikes into an income stream, the impact for the community can last much longer.
