1 Man, 1 Machine, 32 countries, over 13500 miles or 22,000 Kms in 7 weeks!!!
This is the start of once in a life time journey for awareness of Cancer and raising money for the cause. I have recently lost my father-in-law Mr.Malkit Singh, a very gentle soul and Toni Howden my ever energetic colleague to cancer. I am doing this journey in their memory and for each and every one of us, who have lost someone they loved.
This journey is a ray of hope for all the people who are fighting it out, a way of saying we stand with you. This is also a way to say thank you to all the Doctors and care staff who provide hours of unconditional support.
Though this trip is limited to drive through 25 countries, but i hope to spread the message and awareness of Cancer all over the world. Whilst i travel, I would like to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care, Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital and Roko Cancer. Please contribute generously and every penny contributed will be greatly appreciated.
