Story

Thank you for visiting my Just Giving page.

In March 2020, I will be joining a team who will be embarking on a 275km trek across Costa Rica in support of Borne. Borne is a charity which undertakes ground-breaking research to identify and stop premature births.

Our challenge is to raise at least £250,000 for this great cause. As many as 11.4% of all pregnancies end in early deliveries. This is equivalent to some 15 million babies being born prematurely around the world each year, and nearly 60,000 in the UK alone.

I will be crossing Costa Rica from East to West on a remote jungle route (insects and bugs everywhere!) it is rarely used and temperatures will hit a sweltering 35-40 degrees! We will be starting on the shores of the Caribbean Sea and finishing on the shore of the Pacific Ocean 6 days later. The Borne team, which includes world class sportsmen will make the journey on foot, bike, kayak and raft and will be led by former special forces soldiers.

I would like to say thank you in advance for visiting my Just Giving page and thank you for supporting me and Borne.

All the best,

Charlie
