hey! i made it. despite torrential rain on descents that crested 70 kmh, and fingers that were almost too frozen to operate the brakes, i still managed to reach the finish line in one piece (albeit a fairly achy, frozen and wet piece).
many thanks to all you generous souls for such lavish donations! you were all in my thoughts through ten hours of strenuous effort. so much so, that not finishing was never an option!
i have put some pictures up, and will be adding a few videos and such over the coming days.
thank you once again for making such a significant contribution to Plan's work in Uganda. I hope to report back on the ways in which it has improved the lives of Elvin and his community.
Peace, Respect and Jah-love.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
This year, Jake, Noah and I talked about how we could try to help some people who weren't as fortunate as us. Through Plan, we were put in touch with Elvin and his family, and have been helping to sponsor some health and education projects in their home village in the Kwapa District of Uganda.
Given the patent luncacy of dragging myself and my bicycle over several French mountains, as part of the Etape du Tour, I thought I would at least use the opportunity to hit a few people up for some readies in aid of a good cause.
Anything you can spare for Elvin and his village would be greatly appreciated.
Jake, Noah and Jay
