Marrakech Atlas Etape – A Charity Cycle Event – Sunday 28th April 2013

This is an inclusive event with 2 routes to choose from: 140km and 60km, the purpose being to raise money for a well known charity in Morocco ‘Education for All’.  The full ascent will challenge the serious amateur or even professional rider, as well as passionate and determined cyclists who just wants to do this monster of a climb with the exhilaration of the descent.

Full details of the event can be found on the website link below:

Visit by the White family from the USA

The Temple White family gathered the courage to leave their life in the US behind for nine months to travel around the world. Low budget, high adventure living in places they had never been. They gave over half their things away, keeping only what they truly wanted to have waiting for when they returned home. You can read all about their story on thecouragevibe.com

During a week long visit to Marrakech at the beginning of March, the BBG supported their progress and they visited all the charities that we support. We really enjoyed their visit which was filmed by an American film company, Giggling Gorilla Productions. The whole week was inspirational culminating in a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary at Jarjeer where we all met the family and had lunch together generously provided by James Wix.Tommy

We were all joined by local Moroccan children who enjoyed riding the donkeys along with some children with special needs.
