How far would you go? This is the campaign to commemorate the 50. anniversary of Terre des Hommes.
During the year you can do projects by yourself or as a team to collect donations for children in need.
John McGurk and the team from Sportler 4a childrens world are going very far. When they reach their fundraising target they will run several days and nights through Germany to visit several companies that sponsor them.
As a member of “Sportler 4a childrens world” I would like to give my contribution by biking many kilometres.Thomas and I will take part of the “Super Brevet Scandinavia 2017” this month.
Super Brevet Scandinavia is a long distance bike ride around the Kattegat, a part of the Northern Sea. The goal is not racing or winning, the challenge is to stay strong and finish
the distance in 90 hours. Endurance, mental force, navigation and resistance against tiredness are the main factors you need to bike 1200 kilometre with an elevation of 11000 meter
Starting point is Hirtshals in the North of Denmark. We will follow a track crossing Denmark and entering the South of Sweden. To make things more difficult we have to catch some ferries in time otherwise we loose time. Along the westcoast of Sweden we will bike north to Norway to reach on the fourth day our final destination Kristiansand.
We thought that riding the distance for charity will motivate us more when the hills are getting tough and legs are weak of tiredness and when punctures happens.
We are looking for some friends who would like to sponsor the good cause and give children a chance for a better life and a better future. In this way you will be part of our team.
