September is the month of The Big (virtual) Cycle Ride from Manchester to Kampala. We are aiming to raise £20,00 and travel 6,470 miles, crossing the Sahara.
At the latest count we have 46 cyclists from USA, New Zealand, Rwanda, Uganda, Ireland and UK and we all pool the miles we will cycle during the month.
We have cyclist aged from 11 to over 80 and some will cycle a short distance and some will be serious Lycra Wearers who are out to win a Yellow Jersey. Raising a lot of money is the main objective and it is to help complete St Francis de Sales, our second special needs school and aimed at helping deaf and partially sighted young children. These children get very little help in Uganda but we know that if they are given a good helping hand then they can prove that disability does not mean inability.
We will update the Blog lots of times in September to tell you how we are doing.
