Be part of an unforgettable journey through to Rwanda and support Right To Play’s crucial work to protect, educate and empower vulnerable children around the world.

To celebrate Right To Play’s 20th anniversary in 2020, Right To Play Ambassadors, former Winter Olympians Chemmy Alcott and Sarah Lindsay will travel to Rwanda with a team of epic cyclists.

Known as the Land of a Thousand Hills, Rwanda’s breathtaking scenery will provide the backdrop for this Right To Play Ambassador-led fundraising group cycle from Kigali to Cyanika, where the trip will end with a trek to see the endangered mountain gorillas – a bucket list must!

Cycling off the beaten path, you will see terrific tea-plantations, glorious lakes and local village life. This four-day cycling experience will begin in the fascinating city of Kigali, Rwanda's modern but scenic capital city where you will have the unique experience of visiting a Right To Play programme. Right To Play has been part of the healing process that has led to a stable and united Rwanda since the genocide of 1994. It’s difficult to put into words how these children are growing through sport and play - so see it for yourself and be astounded and inspired!

Challenge grade: Moderate-challenging

Training for any bike challenge is essential. The ride is hilly, mostly off-road on dirt roads with daily elevations of around 1000m and riding times between 5-7 hours per day. The temperatures will be hot and the overall altitude is around 1500-2200m. But fear not! Chemmy and Sarah will organise regular training sessions…with a difference!

Fundraising

Cover the cost of the challenge and then fundraise (or sponsor an employee/team) for Right To Play to reach the minimum target of £15,000 (Registration fee: £300 | cost of challenge: £4,900 | Minimum fundraising £9,800)

Impact

  • Right To Play reaches 2.3 million children each week across 15 countries around the world
  • The funds we raise will teach children how to protect themselves from diseases like HIV and Malaria, help child labourers return to school and inspire young refugees living in dire camp conditions to heal and succeed.
