Misha is cycling over 660km, climbing over 7060m, to support Khora, a crucial humanitarian co-op that provides basic services to refugee communities.
Raising money for
Thighs of Steel
Having never even completed a fun five-K, I have signed up to join Thighs of Steel and cycle 660km from Brussels to Stuttgart over just 6 days! Climbing a total incline of 7060m.
Madness?? yes!! Just thinking about it makes me need a nap. But this is in support of Khora, a crucial humanitarian co-op that was founded to provide basic services to refugee communities in Athens, Calais, Serbia and Lesvos.
I will need lots of encouragement and support and every penny donated will help keep me going, more importantly, every penny will help make the lives of those who have lost their homes just a little bit more bearable.
So please give what you can. To find out more visit www.thighsofsteel.com and www.khora-athens.org
London to Athens 2018
A group of not-so-serious cyclists have set themselves the serious challenge of cycling between London and Athens. The ride is a relay-style challenge, with each participant taking on a week or two of the overall trip.
We are fundraising for Khora; a grassroots, proactive association running a community centre in Athens. Their centre provides basic and human needs for people without freedom of movement. This includes free nutritious food, clothing, education, access to information and a safe space to build relationships and relax.
Equally important to what they offer, is how they offer it. Khora is run by volunteers from all over the world. Its team includes members of the local Greek community, the refugee community and other international volunteers too. It prioritises dignity and respect in every service it provides.
The £60,000 we are aiming to raise will pay for the rent for their community centre for an entire year. The running costs of a project are typically the hardest to find funding for, so it of particular importance to be able to provide this for Khora, to secure a stable future for the project. All fund-raised money goes to Khora, and none on the ride.
