Yep, I checked it again, the title it correct. Graham Merrick is a motorcycle enthusiast who together with his robot passenger will set off from John O’Groats on Tuesday 11th August 2009 10:00am and arrive at Cape Cornwall Golf & Country Club on Saturday 15th August. The plan is to raise funds so that Graham can take part in Enduro Africa.
Run by Global Enduro, Enduro Africa is an event that provides transport in the form of a motorcycle, which enables medical personnel to reach outlying areas and provide urgent medical care and aid to otherwise unreachable regions.
If he manages to raise the £5,000, Graham will travel to South Africa on 2nd October and ride a donated motorcycle for eight days and approximately 1000 km though rough and rugged terrain along South Africa’s “Eastern Wild Coast”.
Any contribution can make a difference, so you’re invited to visit the dedicated website, find out more about the challenging events and about Graham’s riding experience and even make a donation. So far, the website managed to raise £1,717.50.
