Story

This is going to be our biggest challenge ever... after the exploits of Manchester to Blackpool in 2008, the Great North 'Try'Athalon in 2009 we've set our sights higher... a non-stop team endurance ride from Manchester to London! 185 miles of batty-punishing, thigh-knackering, madness which will see us riding in pairs from Manchester's Albert Square to London's Big Ben in one go!

And why? For the poor and needy, and the Orphans and Street Children of Masaka, Uganda! The White Eagle Project, run by River of Life Uganda, has been running for 10 years, and is helping 50 orphans and vulnerable children 'fly high' and reach heights they never in their wildest dream thought possible. But there's thousands more children that need help, so we've set ourselves the fantastic challenge of raising £21,000 in 21 days (starting Friday 10th September) to help establish the next phase of the White Eagle Project and rescue more children from a future of despair in Masaka! The money we raise will also go towards running River of Life's other ministries - wherever the need is most.
