In 2015 The Valley Girls cycled across Rajasthan in aid of Vasculitis and The John Radcliffe Hospital. 

This year - in November - we are cycling across Costa Rica - to raise money for Student Minds - a charity focussed on providing support for student mental health - throughout the UK.  They are aiming to provide support from School to University, during University and the transition from University to the Workplace. 

Mental health is a topic close to my heart - and to focus our fundraising on the student population resonates with all of us cycling at this stage of our lives. 


Fundraising as part of a team, view team page.
