We vaccinate dogs and educate children to eliminate rabies around the world.


In 2019 I am cycling (supported) from Cairo to Cape Town, a distance of 11 000km over 4 months. I will be averaging 80 miles a day, 6 days a week, across desert, mountain and (potholed) road, through 10 countries, camping almost every night. Lots of training and organisation is going into this expedition, but anything can happen whilst I am there.

Please sponsor me to help raise money for Mission Rabies, a charity close to my heart. Rabies is a terrible disease, affecting humans and animals. Once symptoms show, it is 100% fatal. That's right, RABIES IS THE MOST FATAL DISEASE OUT THERE- AND IT IS 100% PREVENTABLE. Yet every year an estimated 59000 people die of rabies across the world (one person every 9 minutes)- the majority of these deaths are children.

In Britain we are so lucky not to have to worry about this disease, but in 2013 and 2014 in India I saw firsthand rabies cases and the effects of this horrible disease. (The charity are now working in Tanzania, Malawi and Uganda, as well as Asia.) 

But there is good news- Mission Rabies is part of a concerted effort to reduce human rabies deaths to 0 by 2030. Please donate to help fund this ambitious target and help both human and animals from needless suffering and death.

Rabies needlessly kills 59,000 people each year. This needs to change. Following World Health Organisation guidelines we run mass canine vaccination drives and lifesaving education programmes to help people protect themselves against rabies. What we are doing works, but we can't do it alone.
