Finally it’s time for LifeCycle Malta Foundation’s 18th challenge. The past 17 years have taken various groups of brave cyclists all around the world, from Morocco to Montenegro, Serbia to Slovakia and many places in between. This years challenge marks the 40th destination, Zambia, with all the challenges and triumphs that will surely come with it. All these challenges are endured in order to provide aid to Maltese renal patients in the form of funding for equipment and other necessities to increase these patient’s quality of life.
LifeCycle is well known for being a grueling challenge, a not-for-the-faint-of-heart kind of affair, but what keeps the cyclists going no matter what is knowing that they are putting themselves through this to show camaraderie with the renal patients that have to spend so much of their time on dialysis.
After a true battle with the elements last year in Iceland the destination this year would have to be truly spectacular to keep the momentum going, and it definitely does that. This is the second time a group of Maltese cyclists will visit the stunning continent of Africa under the LifeCycle banner. Once again this group of cyclists will attempt to face the elements and do just that, travelling massive distances throughout the day.
Already the team is growing and many have picked up the torch and will join LifeCycle in this challenge. Applications are open and we invite you to join us on this challenge, where you will be helping those in our own renal unit by challenging yourself and the world around you. It is a truly humbling experience to overcome environmental challenges, and mental challenges to help those that need it.
This challenge promises to be life-changing on both sides of the scale, both for the challengers and the patients. With this in mind, visit us on www.lifecyclechallenge.com and apply or ask any questions you may have.
