dzi Foundation UK

dZi Foundation works in partnership with Nepal's most remote communities to improve quality of life and reduce poverty. This is accomplished through putting communities first, and our investment in projects on the ground is matched in-kind with labor and materials.

Story

As a regular fundraiser I'm always looking for the next challenge and a suitable charity to support. Well this time I've chosen a pretty tough one. On the weekend of 21st October 2016 I will be taking on the challenge of riding 72 hours non-stop on an indoor trainer to try and break the Zwift (indoor training community) distance record which currently stands at 1,600 km's. It will without doubt be one of the hardest challenges I've ever attempted. 

I am also excited to be riding for the dZi Foundation charity and hope that you are keen to support my riding this year. It is a Himalayan focused charity who do great community work. As a huge incentive to support us, we have organised some amazing matching donations for your potential pledge.

Finally, the Himalayan communities themselves will match every euro/pound contributed with the equivalent value of their labor invested in their projects. The power of matching and multiplication is simply tremendous if you sponsor my riding. In total matching will multiply your donation by a minimum of 2x and potentially even more.

You can find out much more about my challenge and dZi Foundation on my personal website:
