Thighs of steel - Ellie Courtney
This June I am cycling from Trieste, North Italy to Dubrovnik, Croatia with a small group of equally crazy people. This is one leg of a big ride, which goes from London to Athens. The scenery on our leg will be stunning, but it's certainly not an easy feat.
We need to cycle 700km with over 9000m of climbing in just 6 days. To put that into perspective, Everest is only 8,848m. On top that off we will be wild camping, which means no hot showers or comfy beds at the end of the day...
Why? We are raising money for Khora, one of Help Refugees outreach projects in Greece. Their centre provides basic needs such as free nutritious food, warm clothing and dental care, but also social needs such as education, child care, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax. This is so important - these people have often left harrowing situations in war torn countries. They are stuck in these centres for a really, really long time. There is a growing need for long-term support in rebuilding lives and hope as well as the emergency care.
All money raised will be going directly to Khora. I believe it is a very worthy cause, thank you very much for any donations.
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.
