Having participated in the inaugural 2018 ride (bragging rights), I have seen first hand the tangible difference we can make to change the lives of these innocent, underprivileged children and their families. (Selfishly, I still think I’m getting the better deal when I see their faces and smiles light up at the simplest act of kindness).
Although I was not a MAMIL, the other riders, the organisation and the support crew made the ride fun (...sore bum aside!!), as well as helping with the fundraising.
I was absolutely speechless (no mean feat), at the number of family, friends and colleagues who sponsored my ride.... some of whom I had not had contact with for many years.
All money donated goes directly into paying for basic human needs, particularly education, basic medicine, food, and clean water.
Importantly, the school environment also provides much needed protection against sexual exploitation and abuse.
(There endeth the sermon!)
Don’t expect the next person will act. Please donate now.
