I'm excited to be taking part in my first Chain Reaction cycling event in 2022, and to put my passion for riding bikes into a generating sponsorship funds for some worthwhile causes.
I don't typically sign up for charity sporting events, but this year, meeting the guys from Chain Reaction and hearing the compelling storied from the charities that they fund - So They Can and BaptistCare HopeStreet - really made me rethink that decision.
So They Can use education to empower girls in Kenya and Tanzania to break the cycle of poverty and use education as a tool to end child marriage and bring access to food and clean water as well as access to basic human rights.
They've put together a great video that explains the work that they do:
I'm looking forward to hitting the Tassie tarmac and tackling some of the tricky climbs, and ticking off 1000km over the 7 days should be a blast!
