57 ˚ S – 10˚ N
We will be cycling, unaided, the length of the Andes mountains, the longest mountain range in the world and the spine of the South American continent. Our project begins in Ushuaia, the southernmost town in the world and finishes on the northern shores of Colombia. We will face strong winds, steep climbs, rough gravel roads, high altitude and subzero temperatures.
Our project aims to fundraise for and raise awareness of Lifebox, an organization that truly saves lives. We aim to raise £1 per mile, which could equip 50 operating rooms with pulse oximeters. This simple life-saving piece of equipment, that monitors a patients oxygen level, is missing from thousands of operating rooms in developing countries. We stand behind lifebox and their values. Safe operating conditions should apply worldwide to stop preventable deaths occurring.
