From March 30th to April 2nd I am trekking in the Himalayas to support the Atlas Foundation's work with kids from the city slums and rural villages of India.
Four friends tackle Himalayan trek to raise funds for The Atlas Foundation
It has always been my passion raising money for a worthy charity whilst giving myself a challenge! The Atlas Foundation is definitely one of them, helping children through rugby, giving them the discipline, support and knowledge, they need to better all aspects their lives.
This Challenge takes on the Himalayan foothills, but also helps the poorest kids in India, from the city slums to subsistence living in the northern jungle. I'm looking to raise at least £10,000 to help them.
I recently saw the work of the Atlas Foundation with some of the poorest kids in Africa. It truly does save lives. Rugby is our sport and and we look after our own, we give back, remembering all the people who gave to us to allow us to succeed. On 30th March I will carry essential medical and educational supplies to kids in the most rural northern part of India. I am raising £10k to help with this. Please donate and support me if you can.
I have seen the work of the Atlas Foundation first hand, helping kids through the power of rugby. In 2019 I have a double challenge - a Himalayan mountain challenge and the Atlas cycle challenge
These children may remind you of Mowgli from the Jungle Book, but the reality of their existence is a grinding poverty which prevents growth, education and opportunity and I want to raise at least £10,000 to help them. Atlas projects use rugby and education to offer these children a future. They have already increased education levels in some areas from 15%-80% and want to continue this work to help as many children as possible.
To raise awareness for The Ian Williams Foundation
Ian was a close friend and housemate whilst at Swansea University. He always committed to what he wanted to achieve with great and inspiring dedication. He once told me to write a list of what I want to succeed with and keep it to hand and constantly remind yourself of it until you complete what's on there. This year I wanted to challenge myself in a way that Ian (Saffa) would have been proud of, so with his suggestion in mind, I've written a list and signed up to a series of events throughout 2
On 20th February 2018, Ian Williams (or Saffa to most of us at Swansea University) collapsed and could not be resuscitated whilst at a training session for Doncaster Knights. I will be taking on Ironman Wales 2019 to contribute to a lasting legacy for Ian and to raise money to ‘Safeguard the Heart of Sport’ by promoting cardiac screening in the young through The Ian Williams Foundation and CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
We wanted to continue to support the amazing work the Lunch Bowl charity are doing in Kenya and especially with the many hundreds of children some orphans that benefit from taking part in playing rugby and look forward to having a nice hot meal!
