Getting on His Bike- for us
We heard from Pete Fox last week, a step father of one of our IDVA clients.
He wanted to raise funds for our IDVA team and the Salvation Army. Both organisations, he says, really transformed his step daughter's life and her journey out of domestic abuse. He is looking for sponsors for an incredible journey of his own!
Pete is planning to cycle an extraordinary route, here is what he says:
My challenge is to cycle from Carcassonne to Nice, in France, across mountainous terrain. I took up cycling just over a year ago and I hope to be able to complete the 470 miles over 7 days. Distance is part of the challenge, but the 11km of ascent is the real challenge, which includes Mont Ventoux, one of the toughest European mountain climbs.
Climbing mountains seems a very appropriate challenge to support charities helping people facing abuse and homelessness. I hope you'll support me.
