Hello dear friends!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. If you did not yet know, this is a BIG year for me and it brings a fund-raising adventure - cycling Morocco! From September 28th until October 3rd 2019, I will be riding 50 - 100km per day (up to 2400m daily in elevation climbs) from Marrakech to Agadir, over the Atlas Mountains! This is my first trip to Africa so I am super excited!
Are you wondering, "Why is she doing this?" Well, I’ve chosen to celebrate some milestones (i.e., graduating from business school, turning 50, 5 years since last adventure ride...) by enjoying a sport I love in a new environment with my friend Karen (see photo) while supporting a meaningful cause. The ride will be organized by Life
Changing Adventures (https://www.life-changing-adventures.com/atlas-mountains-cycle-challenge/) and I’ve selected One Woman at a Time (OWAAT; https://www.onewomanatatime.co.uk) to be my constant motivation. I chose OWAAT because their mission to help women and girls at risk or victims of violence resonates with me. Through partnerships with local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), OWAAT listens to and meets the needs of women and girls in Africa, India and the UK with respect to educational, emotional and financial support.
My goal is to raise 1500£ (~$2000) by August 28, 2019. Please consider supporting this meaningful cause by helping with my fund-raising adventure. I appreciate any amount that you can donate including your good wishes and prayers!
I truly appreciate your support - thank you!
With love, Katie
