What a success, 4500 sponsored miles and we reached Monrovia!

On the 23rd June, after 8 weeks of fantastic individual contributions, we rode into Brewerville Monrovia, a distance of over 4500 miles which has so far raised over £5000!

Our Patron Raquel Cassidy was present and we are grateful for her support, and that of her loyal fans, both on the day and in contributing to the success.

Thank you to all our loyal friends and supporters, here and all over the world, who took part, sponsored or organised the 2019 “Road to Monrovia”.

In a rainy and wet Monrovia, here is the moment we arrived at the school after 4500 miles of riding, walking, swimming and rowing from all our supporters.

Simultaneously, in different weather conditions, we completed 4500 miles at the Family Funday in Yateley.

Here are just some of the images from both the Family Funday and your efforts over the last 8 weeks as we collectively cycled, swam, walked and rowed 4500 miles, raising in excess of £5000.

One week to go!

With just over a week to go we are in Nouakchott in Mauritania, we are sure most of you have been there before!

We still have 1000+ miles to go in just over a week and would hope that “one more effort” from all those taking part will see us to Monrovia.

It is not too late to take part, either cycling, exercise bike or walking, all miles appreciated.You can cycle anytime or place to help us on the “Road to Monrovia”.

Please can we also ask that any sponsor monies are paid in using Virgin Money or your preferred option. We are looking to average a £ per mile so all contributions are gratefully received.

The picture at the top of this page is the new bike purchased to help our volunteers get around to all the schools we have sponsored children as part of their oversight of the sponsorship programme.

Please do send photos and updates via this website or Instagram so that we can keep telling the story.

A reminder that the Family Funday starts at 2pm next Sunday (23rd June) and, if possible bring your bike(s) so that you can take part in the final lap of honour on the “Road to Monrovia”.

Dry and dusty but well on the way!

As of today our “Road to Monrovia” sponsored ride has reached the Western Sahara, the best part of 3000 miles from Yateley with 1500 still to go!

Thanks to all those who are cycling, rowing, or walking in so many different places. From Northumberland to Norfolk, from Yateley to the USA, from Germany to Nigeria, we have people contributing in so many different ways!

Please keep on cycling, and sharing your efforts and achievements with us so that we can keep updating our map and raising the £4500 target we are hoping to achieve.

Here are just a few of your images:

We hope as many of you as possible can join us on Sunday 23rd June for a celebratory “lap of honour” at our Family Funday.

The day starts at 2pm and includes a BBQ, raffle,bouncy castle and refreshments and is always a good day out!

Road to Monrovia: We are in Spain but plenty of distance to go

As we write our 4500 mile sponsored cycle has reached the gates of San Sebastian in Spain thanks to the collective efforts of everyone to date.

All over the UK and in other parts of the world, our supporters are putting in the miles to complete the symbolic journey and help us to raise £4500!

Our patron, Raquel Cassidy, who will be at the Family Funday on the 23rd June has made this short film to ask for your support in the last month!

Full details of how you can get involved are on the EVENTS page of this website.



The Special Olympics Legacy

Following the unqualified success Liberia enjoyed at the recent Special Olympics, they are now in receipt of a small grant that enables even more young people to enjoy the benefit of sport at organised training camps.

The recent Easter Camp is pictured below, an opportunity for our 3 Olympians to join other youngsters in having fun and, maybe, the start of finding new champions for the next Olympiad in Germany?
