Dear friends,

Please help me with this fundraiser that will enable hundreds of empoverished children obtain an education and better lives. On October 2014 a group of us will be traveling to Jocotenango, Guatemala.

We are providing our own travel expenses but need your financial support to help this program: http://www.eftc.org.uk/our-work. EFTC's mission is to break the cycle of poverty through education, empowerment and enterprise at the heart of the community. We work in partnership with disadvantaged families, children and young adults in Guatemala, Central America to ensure they develop the tools they need to break free from the cycle of poverty.

After our team provides health screening exams for this children we are participating in an annual fund raiser. I will be mountain biking for 50 kilometers to a campsite on day 1. The following morning I will jump into a kayak and paddle for approximently 2 hours across Lake Atitlan to the base of Volcan San Pedro where I will ascend until I reach the summit. Here is some info regarding the event: http://www.eftc.org.uk/pedal-paddle-peak

If you are able, please donate and help spread the word. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Best to you all!
