Why am I cycling 250km through the hot and humid hills of Cambodia?
Well, work roped me into this trip - I'm joining law firm Wotton+Kearney as they cycle and sweat through Cambodia, learning about human trafficking in Southeast Asia and raising funds for International Justice Mission as we seek to end it.
No-one asked me to fundraise. But as I cram in some training over the next few weeks, preparing to cycle 30-80km a day, I'm asking you to get behind me because I know that the money we raise will make a lasting impact in the lives of rescued slaves and in whole communities that will be safe from violence because of IJM's work.
I'm committed to IJM because we aren't afraid of tackling big, ugly issues like slavery. I'm passionate about what we do because I've seen that change is possible, and it's happening.
Thanks for your support - it means a lot more than you might think!
