On 16 November, Stephen and I will be heading off to Costa Rica to cycle from East to West across the country to raise funds for The Urology Foundation https://www.theurologyfoundation.org/
This amazing charity provides information on the signs, symptoms and treatments for urological cancers and diseases.
We will start our 400km bike journey at Parismina on the East coast of the country and travel right through the middle of the country via the Miravalles Volcano to end our journey at the Play Hermosa on the West Coast. So our hill-training in North Norfolk is going to have to be supplemented by some training in Ruttland or Worcestershire!
We are paying all the challenge costs ourselves - this includes our flights, food, accommodation, bike mechanics, medical support and back up etc for the entire trip, but we want to raise £3,600 for The Urology Foundation, and this is where you come in . . .
Stephen and I have chosen Pledgit to handle our fundraising because they have a strong connection with TUF (in fact the platform was set up by some 2015 TUFfers). They have agreed to charge NO fees at all on our campaign, which means that every single penny of what you donate will go to the charity and the work they need to be doing. What's more, Pledgit also gives Stephen and me, the fundraisers, the opportunity to put our money where our mouths are which means that the first £500 of your donations will be match-funded by us.
We appreciate every penny you can give to The Urology Foundation as by working with researchers, urologists, health care workers they are improving the nations's urology care and we all know loved ones who are or who have suffered from urological cancers or diseases.
Thank you in anticipation for anything you can give.
Antonia and Stephen
