I have brought the start of Cycling for Hope forward by one day to Friday 19 July 2013. I will be cycling 100km every day from tomorrow 19 July until Sunday 18 August 2013 to raise money to help Nakuru Hope buy 5 acres (2 hectares) of land so they can feed their community and help women set up small businesses so they don’t have to rely on prostitution to feed their children.
I am looking forward to the challenge, which I hope will see me enjoying some fun mountain bike trails.
It will no doubt see me riding some long commuter miles at night to try to fit the 4-6 hours of cycling around my full-time job and part-time university study commitments.
I am looking forward to weekend rides exploring town and country roads.
But most importantly, I hope this month on the bike will raise money to bring hope, food and opportunity to the people of Nakuru. People I have never met. But people whose lives so touched my parents that they committed to raise $50,000 to purchase the land Nakuru Hope need to grow food for their community and to match every dollar raised from their private savings.
All donations, whether $5 or $100 will be gratefully received and matched. You will receive an official Australian tax receipt from Rotary Australia Overseas Aid. You can donate here.
