Why I care

The only female representive this year of a group of 25 taking part in this fantastic charity event. Last year we raised approx. 45K CHF for the chosen charities. I am very grateful & a sincere thank you to all those who generously gave last year.

This year we tackle mountain passes across  the Pyrenees from the Atlantic coast across to the Mediterranean coast resulting in ~750km & 15,500m climbing between July 22nd – 26th.

The route includes some of the classic climbs from the Vuelta and the Tour de France, such as Tourmalet, Aubisque, Aspin and Peyresourde.

We are blessed to have the health & capabilities to partake in such an event but not all are as fortunate – with this event we are hoping to raise at least 65K which will benefit a retired blind person, who is in need of a replacement guide dog and is not eligible for coverage through the Federal Disability Insurance.
