Hi Everyone! On the 22nd & 23rd of October 2015 I will be participating in a charity hike through the Grand Canyon to raise money for British Airways' Flying Start charity. The hike will cover around 30km of rugged terrain through the canyon in Arizona heat, and will be a physically demanding test (and hopefully a rewarding test!), for all involved! I'm absolutely delighted to be doing this for Flying Start, and all the great causes it supports.
Flying Start is a fantastic charity established in partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief to support causes that benefit disadvantaged youth around the world, whether this be in the developing world, the UK or the USA - Working in partnership with some great causes including Comic Relief and the Boys & Girls Club of America, the charity has delivered over 11 Million pounds worth of aid to causes around the world in just a few short years; and made a huge difference to the lives of many.
I've set a very conservative goal of $600 as my minimum fundraising amount for the challenge, and hope to well surpass this, giving as much well needed support to this great cause! If you can afford to, I would be greatly appreciative of any and all support you can give to the fundraising, however big or small! Thank you! Neil
