But this time, is he going too far? On June 28th, Paul will set off from Hampton Court, London, on a 3 day, 600km stage race from London to Paris (the L2P). Other riders will include top 1980s pro cyclist Sean Kelly, and European Classics star, Johann Museuw. This will ensure a pace designed to make the lesser rider suffer.
So why bother? Well, the ride is designed as a sponsorship event to benefit three Children’s charities
This year L2P will be supporting three charities:
Morning Star Children’s Centre
, a day care facility for babies and young children, often orphans, who are infected with HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
Schools for Children of Cambodia
, a British registered charity funding free education programs for over 2000 children in Cambodia.
, a worldwide organisation helping children to break the cycle of poverty and become self-sufficient contributing members of their societies.
So, here’s the thing – if you or your organisation is willing to sponsor Paul for any amount, large or small, then at least he will know his is suffering for a good cause. Paul knows he won’t win the race, but there is a competition for the most funds raised, so maybe he might win that with your help. Supporting organisations will be featured on PharmiWeb.com.
