Cycling across Europe
We are Catarina and Gwen, two individuals born and raised in different countries (Portugal and Singapore). We met in one of the biggest trauma hospitals in London, UK, right after Christmas 2020 whilst working as a Pharmacist and a Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit treating critically ill COVID patients.
Our friendship revolved around our love for the outdoors and cycling, which became our escape from the daily grind of our day jobs. We have managed to incorporate cycling into our travels ever since, which has never failed to allow us to connect authentically with the people we met on our journeys.
This year has been dedicated to exploring new places, forging new friendships, and most importantly, learning to live at a slower pace and experience living without rushing.
We chose this charity as we have seen the positive impact of cycling on our mental and physical health, and we believe in the Power of Bicycles and their ability to bring change to the world.
Please consider supporting our fundraising efforts to help mobilise individuals in rural developing countries, giving them access to basic needs such as education and healthcare. Any amount that you choose to donate is greatly appreciated as USD$120 helps put a brand new bike in the field and forever changes the trajectory of a child's life.
Spread the word by sharing this page with others who may want to donate to help individuals challenged by distance.
Thank you for your support!
