At about this time last year, I posted a few times about Dom and Phil's sponsored bike trip,
Rome -Medjugorje-Walsingham. They hoped to raise £2500 for Youth 2000, and by the grace of God, their magnificent determination and gruelling efforts, and the generosity of many people, the total was eventually in excess of £4000.
I mention this now, because I see that Mulier Fortis has posted about a similar fundraising initiative:
Their fundraising page provides more information, here's a brief taste:
"The trip is a holiday and a pilgrimage, but we'd like to take the opportunity to raise money for two fantastic charities. We're funding the trip ourselves, so all monies raised will go directly to the charities, in equal proportion.
Mary’s Meals provides a staple, daily meal in schools for children in some of the poorest countries in the world, thus fighting poverty through tackling malnutrition and encouraging education. The Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative provides non-judgemental practical, spiritual and emotional support for mothers in the UK, struggling with crisis pregnancy and the prospect of bringing up a child alone. "
The Treloars have also started their own blog: Via Romea

Please consider supporting the cyclists, it would be really great to break through their target, for the benefit of two very deserving charities.
