About this cause

About our cause

I am very excited to announce that on the 16th February 2022 I will be embarking on a 7-week expedition to Costa Rica. In order to fundraise for this, I am setting myself the challenge running and cycling 288 miles between now and the start of the expedition. Less than 90 days away! This 288 miles represents the length of Costa Rica. This will be a massive challenge, but will set me up for the demands of the trip. I will spend the majority of my time working alongside a team of 17-24 year olds on either a community-led project, joining forces with local indigenous communities to improve access to education for some of Costa Rica's most marginalised children, rebuilding their infrastructure and schools in the rural communities. Or an environmental project, improving access while working alongside the rangers in the most wonderful national parks of Costa Rica. Joining this expedition on my own is going to push me far out of my comfort zone, but I feel I want to embrace every challenge head on, and contribute to bringing positive change for communities who are far less fortunate than myself. These parts of the world have been hit hard after the pandemic, so it is essential that organisations like Raleigh fight even harder to help them.
