I can’t just take a year or two off to relax and do nothing. That wouldn’t be right, and it would be incredible lazy. Of course I’d like to sit on a beach, party my money away but that would be a waste. Giving to these three great causes as I ride across America (and hopefully all the way home) will give me the push to carry on when things get tough. I know times are hard for everyone at the moment, but if you could donate a couple of quid or dollars to one of the following fantastic causes. Thanks again.
I have chosen Dyslexia Action as the main charity for this adventure. Having suffered from dyslexia all my life and knowing how frustrating it can be, especially when you’re a child or a teenager trying to hide it from everyone. I’m sure if I had help from an organization such as Dyslexia Action when I was at school it would have made things far easier for me.
Dyslexia is so misunderstood, people have the idea your are either lazy, stupid or thick, which is certain not the case, I’ve achieve many great things in my life. Working for BBC, travelling to some incredible places to name two of the things. Many dyslexic people excel and shine in such fields as the arts, creativity, design and computing. And let’s not forget Television & Radio ;-) So please click on the button below to get started. It only take a minute to donate.
I have chosen Cancer Research U.K as one of the charities for this adventure. Without the work & research of such a great organisation then many more people would lose their lives to cancer. I’m dedicating this trip to my Mum, her friends and anyone else who has been effected by cancer in some way or form. So please click on the button below to get started. It only takes a minute to donate.
My final charity I have chosen is CURE CHILDHOOD CANCER. An American charity us Brits may not be familiar with. Let me explain why I’ve chosen this final organization.
My friends Marcus and Ashley who live in Savannah, Georgia have three wonderful girls – Lexi (8 years), Caymen (4 years) & Avalon (2 years). Last year Avalon was diagnosed with leukaemia and has been in and out of hospital since this awful news.
The vision of Cure Childhood Cancer is that childhood cancers can be cured in our lifetime. The money raised will go on research to discovering cures for childhood cancer through cutting edge research and support to patients and their families.
It’s been a roller coaster of a year for the whole family and without a doubt it made perfect sense to dedicate this bicycle trip across America (and beyond) to the the very brave Ava and her awesome family.
