Rank's Thighs of Steel: Raising money for refugees
So a few weeks ago, when I was off work and with time to ponder what the hell I'm gonna do with my life in 2017....I thought to myself i need a challenge, a challenge that would put me out of my comfort zone and at the same time try my best to raise some much-needed funds for a cause I felt passionate about...so I've decided to risk life and limb to cycle from Corfu to Athens (around 700km with an 8600km ascent)! :)
It is for a specific project in the shape of a community space in Athens called KHORA (http://www.khora-athens.org) They house, feed and try to help as many refugees as possible..it is a vital source of support for so many that have been displaced from their homes and families. They cannot apply for funding for the rent or bills of the building so need to have unrestricted funding from the likes of me and you.
Borders been closed there are over 50,000 refugees in Athens who have nowhere to go, cannot work and are unable to claim benefits of any kind.
So yah any help or spare cash you can donate would be amazing & super appreciated. I will be spending a couple of days volunteering at Khora after bike ride so will be able to report back :)
Thighs of Steel 2017
We are fundraising for Help Refugees, who fund small grassroots refugee organisations. The specific group we are fundraising for is Khora, a co-operative made up of volunteers from all over the world, including the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers. Their community centre in Athens provides not only basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm clothing and access to dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.
