Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be joining the ARCHIE Foundation and world-record breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont on a two-day epic bike ride between their three hospitals in Dundee, Inverness and Aberdeen. The ride will consist of 256 miles (more than 400km), over 48 hours with close to 4000m of climbing. It will be by far the biggest endurance challenge I have taken part in!

The ARCHIE Foundation provides extra care for the ones who need it the most - sick children in hospitals. Beyond the amazing care that NHS already provides, the ARCHIE helps with advanced training and equipment, specialist staff, child-friendly environments, and extensive support to families of sick children. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to raise money for the ARCHIE Foundation along with Mark and fellow cyclists!

... as well as Mark's amazing accomplishments!

Since I realize it is not fair to ask people for donations, without contributing myself, I have decided to match 10% of ALL donations I collect!


Within the next few weeks, I will be training hard to prepare for the event, you can monitor the progress here!
