    Story

    Krzys is a Spark. Just look at this smile and those beautiful eyes.... :)

    But he needs lots of help to bloom and share his light. Born in 34th week of pregnancy in severe asphyxia, with a birth weight of 1700 grams, second degree intraventricular stroke and cerebral palsy. His fantastic parents work really hard to support his development. His treatment is considered innovative and experimental, and therefore the parents need to cover 100% of the cost. (Charity page). The therapy is bringing amazing results, Krzys is learning to walk, control his movements, maybe even talk one day...

    I met Krzys's mum when my first son, Benji, was born. She was my rock in the challenging first months as a mum, her love to my son was instant and beautiful. Now Benji is 10 years old and the tables have turned - her son needs my support.

    So....

    Benji and I have set ourselves a challenge of a cycle, all the from Bristol to London's Big Ben (Map) . 140 miles of a maximum effort, from one little boy to another. We will leave Bristol on the 25th May, plan to arrive in London 28th May. Impressed? I know I am!

    Every penny raised here will directly support stem cells administration and rehabilitation of our little Spark. Please help us help Krzys!

    We will publish more about our training, preparation and then report how we are getting on. The final picture with a Big Ben will be a cherished reward for us, as much as the funds raised for Krzys!

      Dear All... Today is the last day of our collection, and the wonderful adventure that our ride has been, is now drawing to a close. It has been one of the coolest things I have ever done with my son, empowering him in so many ways... I cannot say "thank you " enough for all your kind words and positivity. PS. Great Bucket Opening tomorrow, watch this space. Much love

      We have made it! Please see Benji with his lovely bodyguards... :) I will post more pics tomorrow, once I have recovered, but please bear in mind that Big Ben is actually being renovated, so kind of didn't pose nicely for our triumphant photo... Our online collection is on here till the 1st of June. If you haven't chipped in, please please please spare us you tomorrow's coffee money - every pound counts... It is such a cliche, but actually very very true :) Anyone who would like to support Krzys from Poland, please check out: rik.pl/krzys

      Good evening, everyone... Just to let you know that all is good, despite a few adventures (flooding, equipment malfunction) we are safe and sound in our evening destination. Cycling through the centre commercial of Reading was a bit of a shock - too many people, colours and sounds! Ps. Check out Benji getting his energy gel (caffeinated, as I discovered later!) with the reflection of myself in his shades :)

    I'm a 43-year-old mum of 2 boys currently living and working in Bristol, UK. I love cycling, therefore my 10-year old son Benji and I have chosen a bike trip all the way from Bristol to London as our charity fundraising challenge.
