The devastating earthquakes and after shocks which have hit in Nepal in the last few weeks have left 8000 dead, 14000 injured, over 700,000 homeless and 8 million affected. Already a country battling poverty, Nepal is suffering immensly as a result.
Although several thousand miles away, each and every one of us is still able to help out. For SURC , Nepal is a country close to many of our members adventuring hearts and so we've decided to get fundraising.
What is happening?
SURC (Southampton University Road Cycling club) are putting on 48-hour non-strop rollathon in support the Oxfam's Nepal Appeal to try and cycle the equivalent distance of Southampton to Kathmandu. It’s taking place on 29-31st May on Campus. We'll keep 8 sets of rollers constantly going by alternating riders with the intention of riding this massive distance. There will be music, lights, a big crowd and food/drinks to keep everyone going through the nights.
How can I get involved?
As you can imagine, SURC will need lots of people for this mammoth task, that is where you come in. If you can give just an hour of your time over the weekend that would be amazing. If you are free and around, I urge you to take part. The sign-up is here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1eaWQQpZI98lyPqFtiZ6USzrJufIaDqeLTUIbv4suE9Y/viewform?usp=send_form.
If you can't make the weekend, then we'd love if it you wanted to make a donation directly to Oxfam through this website.
Thank you for you support.
