Hello and Welcome from Evan Miller
Betfair LifeCycle Challenge - Down Under
Lifecycle supports the renal unit at Mater Dei Hospital in Malta. The 2010 challenge is hoping to raise €200,000 to buy much needed equipment and support for the unit. Renal failure does not discriminate and can affect anyone, so I know I am helping a good cause, particularly in a small and not so wealthy European country. Lifecycle is not just a 14 day commitment in August. Training started in earnest in mid April and intensifies as we approach the August 14th start date. A typical week requires rides on 6 out of 7 days, where the distance will gradually increase to 600kms per week. Considering Malta is only 50 km from one end to the other, the training can be some what repetitive. There is a downside to so much training, the lack of attention my other passions will receive: - My Fishtank - Under orders that I cannot set up the tank until after Lifecycle. - Scuba Diving - If I am not cycling, I am working! Not to mention that I am without fail in the doghouse every time I leave home before 6am and return from training after 10pm (which occurs frequently). Beneficial aspects of the challenge is that I will ride, including training, 7400kms. Which equates to un-eating 293 Double Whoppers with Cheese. Now for all the masochists out there. This is San Gotthard's pass in Switzerland, which is a 35km long cobblestone road over an ascent of 2000m. I think I have to climb this 'hill' on day 3 of the challenge. No pushing of the bike is allowed, as it equates to an immediate disqualification. Also if you really like your pain, think about why chamois cream (crotch cream) is a necessity, and why back, crack and sack waxes are not optional. I know everyday some person is also asking you for money, but please consider my request first. Please follow the link below to donate and if you are a UK taxpayer, please use the gift aid option. Thank-you for reading my blurb, feel free to email me or my PA (ok, the boss) if you would like an update on my progress. Thanks again, Evan.
About Lifecycle Malta
The LifeCycle Organisation was founded in Malta in 1999 to create awareness and generate support for patients suffering from end stage renal disease. As from 2013 the Organisation has now been registered as LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation.
The foundation organizes the LifeCycle Challenge, which is one of the most gruelling endurance events in Europe, pitting a dedicated team of Maltese cyclists against the elements in a long distance ride through different countries all over the world. This event covers an average of 2,000km in a mere 10 to 12 days and is held annually in the summer months.By putting such an extreme event together, LifeCycle intends to attract the Maltese public’s attention to the plight of patients of the Renal Unit in Malta, and to encourage generous donations from the public. These donations go towards the cost of treatment, equipment, research and improving the quality of life of patients on dialysis. Having collected over a million Euros since 1999, LifeCycle (Malta) Foundation hopes to collect more funds every year with the help of the generous donations given to the Foundation by companies and individuals.
