I am cycling from John O'Groats (northern most point of scotland) to lands end (southern most point of england) with my old man. It is going to involve cycling 1,500km in 12 days and by most accounts it is going to be long, cold and wet. So to bring some light to some (and keep myself going) I am going to raise money for charity. I have chosen the Big Shoes Foundation which is a great cause helping children living with HIV/AIDS.
BIGSHOES' VISION is to reduce the suffering of vulnerable children, ensure their health and empower their caregivers.
Bigshoes achieves this through the provision of four programmes: Adoption and Outreach Medical Clinic; Training on Basic Child Health; Abandoned Baby Project and the Paediatric Palliative Care Programme. Bigshoes has branched in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape and offers services to over 3500 children and training to over 620 medical professionals annually.
