Over 28 days we’re going to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to support their on going efforts amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Between 36 people we’ll be travelling nearly 42,000km in just 28 days, equating to over 1400km a day between us.
Over the duration of challenge, we’ll be visiting many different countries and cultures throughout the world, much like the work that MSF do. Starting at the UK, we’ll then pass through, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Bolivia, Brazil, Senegal, Gambia, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Morocco, Spain and finally up through France and back into the UK.
We’ve assembled a team of 36 individuals who are ready for the challenge -with just over 1000km needed between them for the whole month, lets see how they do. You can keep up to date with everyone’s progress here on Strava.
By running, cycling and rowing, we’re going to be travelling the length of the Earth to raise money for MSF.
Supporters can follow the challenge on the Elevate social media pages using the hashtags #elevate28, #ElevateAroundTheWorld and #ElevateMSFcovidappeal.
