Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Due to Hurricane Rina heading our way the Challenge has been postponed for next week. Very likely to be happening November 1st, 2n and 3rd

I will be participating in the very first Challenge that GVI Mexico is organizing to raise funds for our Charity Trust projects.


I will be kayaking and cycling through the Sian Ka'an Biosphere. It will be quite tough but definetly worth it!


The Challenge

Day 1

We will start at Pez Maya base where we will adventure into the mangrove system and kayak for a few hours to Paso Lagartos.We will be rowing 20 km! Rumour says that it will take us about 5 hours! Then we will spend the night camping on the beach.


Day 2

With an early start, we will continue the adventure through the mangroves all the way to Punta Allen, just another 20 km!


Day 3

As if it wasn't enough with two days rowing, we will be cycling back from Punta Allen to Tulum on the very bumpy road through the Reserve. In total we will be cycling about 52 km!

It will be quite intense but it is for a good cause.


I am raising funds for our two Charity Trust projects:

1. Establishing a recycling centre in Punta Allen: the community has been working towards the construction of a recycling centre where they can store all the rubbish they are separating. The money will be used to help building the centre, to buy recycling bins for town, and to give mantainance to the centre.



2. Amigos de Sian Ka'an (ASK) Marine Ecosystem projects: ASK are an NGO that has been working for 25 years, they are our major partners and some of their achivements are the creation of "no take" zones in the reef, protected areas and management plans for the region. The money will be used to buy equipment like BCDs, regulators, tanks, gps and other bits that they need to continue working on their different projects.


Both projects are very important and are helping to the conservation of our ecosystems.


I will really appreciate if you give me a hand to reach and maybe exceed my target :)

Thank you very much in advanced, every little bit helps!
