Please help me support kids in needAs crazy as it may seem I am in hard training for another epic fundraising cycle week. We will cycle over 1,000km in 7 days, exploring all that Tasmania can throw at us. A close friend, who is an engineer, advised that the heartland of Tasmania is full of brutally steep climbs. These roads were only meant as service roads when building the hydro-electric scheme, so are utilitarian (steep and uncompromising). It’s going to hurt!,
Why am I doing this? Because most of us in Australia are very fortunate and I believe in trying to help those who have not had the opportunities I have had. This year we are riding for 2 great causes.
1: So They Can, a hugely impactful NGO working in Kenya and Tanzania. So They Can provides quality education for kids as well as wider support to disadvantaged communities. So They Can are also working hard to prevent the horrific practice of genital cutting in teenage girls in remote Kenyan communities. These girls want to complete school, gain an education and be independent, rather than forced into marriage as a young teenager, with limited prospects for any freedom of choice and quality of life
2: Baptist Care Hope Street is an Australian organization helping those who are homeless, suffer from mental health challenges, and women and children who have been victims of domestic violence.
Both causes do incredible work and I hope you can support me to support them. Many thanks, Andrew
