I'm Sascha, a 26 year old electrician from Switzerland.
I heard about Thighs of Steel and was hooked by its concept right away. It is a great cause and I am looking forward to supporting refugees in Greece and at the same time see a (for me) new part of the world and experience its beauty and culture!

If you made it to here you are only one step away from helping me reaching my fundraising target of 500£. I hope you are interested in it and would be very happy if you do think that it is a worthy cause!

The money goes directly to the refugee center in Athens, KHORA.

Again, thank you for your support!

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.
