Fundraising for Tearfund to fight human trafficking
We're joining the Tearfund Poverty Cycle challenge to help combat human trafficking.
On 16 March from 8am to 12 noon, we as a team will be cycling up the equivalent of Mt Everest! It's an 8,848m climb to the top of Mt Everest, which equates to 26 climbs up to the Wellington Wind Turbine, starting from the Vet Hospital at 8 Brooklyn Rd.
Please help by sponsoring me.
A couple of us might try the massive effort of doing the 26 climbs by themselves, joining a very select number of cyclists worldwide who have done it (more info on: https://everesting.cc/). Chapeaux!
That should not distract us from the core issu: Human trafficking is a real, worldwide problem. 4.8 million people are victims of forced commercial sexual exploitation (approximately the population of New Zealand) 99% of whom are women and girls.
The money raised through the Tearfund Poverty Cycle will help support international and local projects, working across the spectrum in prevention, prosecution, and rehabilitation.
My goal on the challenge is doing at least 1500m of elevation or 1m for each dollar I raise through my sponsors, whatever comes higher and humanly possible. :)
Spread the word, and thanks for taking the time to read it!
Have an awesome day!
Thank you to my Sponsors
