Cycling 2650 km To Help Prospective UWC Students

Over the period of 100 days (starting from April 1st), I am going to cycle 2650km (~1650 miles) to raise money for some truly incredible students that have been nominated for places at UWC.
These students are all unique in ways I could not possibly convey in a mere few sentences. I am not lying to you when I say that they are the next world leaders, the next Nobel Prize winners, the next globally renown activists...!
I have had the honour of speaking to every one of these amazing individuals and I cannot express enough how much they deserve this opportunity. Going to UWC will catalyse their journey towards reaching their true potentials and it will allow them to forge links with equally passionate people just like themselves, from every corner of the globe.

Unfortunately, some candidates that have blown my mind in how wonderful and passionate they are have had to decline their place at UWC due to being just short of the bursary they needed, and that is why I am doing this.
It truly saddens me that some of these extraordinary people have had to give up on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for something that I do not have to worry about myself (thanks wholly to financial aid); especially given that the opportunity does not serve to simply show them a good time for 2 years but to aid them in developing skills that they will use to change the world. And I refuse to let any more of them have to deny a place for financial reasons.

I have chosen to cycle 2650km as it is approximately the distance from UWC AC to UWC Mostar (the college I will be attending in August). More specifically, the distance is made up for by the cumulative distance from UWC AC to UWC Maastricht, to UWC Robert Bosch College, to UWC Adriatic, to UWC Mostar.
Below is a link to both my Facebook and Instagram page where I will be posting daily updates about my progress. I would be so incredibly happy and grateful if you would like to share these pages (and/or this page).
I will also provide a link to the UWC website and the UWC AC website should you wish to learn more about the movement.

I would be infinitely grateful, from the bottom of my heart, for absolutely any donations made to this cause. Every bit counts, so even if it's just £1 that you wish to donate I will be incredibly grateful.

Thank you so much :)
