Wheeling2help volume 2

A quote that we all love says ”Dream.Believe.Do.Repeat”!

So, after an amazing Wheeling2help that we dreamed, believed and did in September 2015, when we cycled 2,500 km in Europe from London to Athens in 35 days passing by 8 countries raising 15,654 euro for children with cancer of Floga organization, we are ready for our new challenge!

 

 

 

On the 7th of September, the same day that Paralympics begin, we will cycle from :

Istanbul to Heraklion

1.700 km

32 days

20 events 

aiming to raise 19,000 euro to buy 100 wheelchairs for children with disabilities.

Our goal apart from offering the wheelchairs to children with disabilities, is also to raise awareness to the public about their problems in our every day life. During our project, there will be volunteering fairs hosted in 20 different Greek cities where different NGOs, local associations, clubs, etc, will organize events related to disabilities, sports, environment, health, education, etc, in the central squares of the cities so that many citizens can participate!

 

The dates of the events in every city are :

Alexandroupoli 10/9

Komotini 11/9

Xanthi 12/9

Kavala 13/9

Thessaloniki 15/9

Larisa 17/9

Trikala 18/9

Karditsa 19/9

Volos 20/9

Lamia 22/9

Athens 25/9

Korinthos 27/9

Nafplio 28/9

Tripoli 29/9

Kalamata 1/10

Sparti 3/10

Gytheio 4/10

Chania 7/10

Rethimno 8/10

Heraklion 9/10

 

Of course, since the aim of the project is to involve as many people as possible, you are more than welcome to join and cycle with us in any part of the trip! The distances that will be covered daily are not that long and the pace will not be intense in most parts so that we all enjoy!
