Can a collective community of people come together to raise money to contribute towards a superb cause? This fundraising page will be an experiment in answering that question.
This page is an attempt to show that a large community of small donations can make a BIG difference. As my trip and fundraising develops, I hope to include different ways of reaching my designated target of £5000.00. That's £1.00 for every mile I hope to ride. I hope you can all join me in my adventure and follow my travels through my blog: www.maxrickymills.tumblr.com & like my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/MaxMills5000MilesAcrossAmerica
I think it's important to state: the donations all go directly to Cancer Research UK. My travel is all self funded. This page is an attempt to incorporate a worthy cause to drive me on through the tough days in the saddle.
Every bid, regardless of the amount is gratefully accepted. Large amounts are most welcome, but hopefully the small amounts will make up the a community of people, all contributing all under one common cause.
Thanking you all in advance.
