Boo representatives successfully completed their 400 mile plus journey through France in September. The 18 money-raising cyclists cycled 425 miles from Perpignan to Monaco over a a four day period, reaching heights of around 18,000 feet.
The final day of the ride provided the group with some treacherous weather conditions. Reports have estimated that the French Riviera received 10% of annual rainfall in one day. Each member of the team was able to bravely overcame the conditions and the group made it to the final destination of the Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco.
This journey began back in 2012 with just 4 cyclists and the group has grown in size every year and has made it from Poole to Monaco in the past 3 years. Their first journey took them to Paris, then the next to Bordeaux, then from Bordeaux to Perpignan and finally the latest surge to Monaco.
The group raised a fantastic £14,500 which will go towards supporting a number of new children in our projects and enable them to receive food and clean water on a daily basis along with the gift of education.
We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who donated to our cause and helped us achieve such a great sum. We will be sure to update so you know exactly how your generous donations are being spent.
