Biking for charity (Uppsala -> Manchester)

Uppsala --> Moston, Manchester

• Charity Bike Ride
On the 23rd of June I will embark on a charity bike ride from Uppsala, Sweden to Manchester, UK in order to raise money for "Doctors without borders (MSF)" ( which is a humanitarian-aid NGO with over 20000 medical (and other) volunteers that work in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic diseases.

• Why?
Well first of all, while these doctors, nurses (and others) are volunteering their time and security to solve issues of world health in regions that needs it the most and I reckon the least we can do is to chip in a bit to help people who are less fortunate than we are.

• Why Manchester?
My journey is part a pilgrimage to a very special football club called FC United of Manchester. The club is owned by it's fans and run on a democratic principle which is not very common in football these days. They also do a lot of social and community work and has finally been able to build their own stadium which will be my final destination.

• The Challenge!

I promise to...
ride my bike from Uppsala to Manchester, covering about 2500-3000 km in the process. (As long as I don't injure myself of course)

In return...
I only ask you to make a small (or big) donation to Doctors without Borders. The goal for this fund-raiser is to collect at least 10000 SEK (or about 1075 Euros). If we can go beyond it, even better!

Please give a donation here on the site, everything helps!

100 Swedish kronor (SEK) is roughly 10.8 Euros or 8.55 British Pounds. You can pay pay VISA and Master Card, just click the button ”Give Donation” to make a donation!

    Hej Linus! Jag tycker att det du har gjort är helt fantastiskt. Jag har tänkt donera, men skjutit upp det och varit bortrest mycket. Nu tar jag sista chansen att få bidra. Tyvärr är jag rätt så pank och kan inte avvara så mycket, men ändå!
