University student plans to cycle 10,000 miles around the worldBy Editor
A massive cycling journey is soon to take place in the county of Yorkshire. No, not the Tour de France - everyone knows that’s already started. What we’re talking about is MA post-grad Badrul Hisham, and his plans to bike all the way to Malaysia in August.
The journey, which is an approximate distance of 10,000m, is all in aid of engineer Hisham’s concerns over homelessness across the globe, as he aims to raise at least £1000 for Homeless International, whose headquarters reside in Coventry.
On his JustGiving fundraising page he opens his plea with the stirring belief that: “the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”
Speaking further on his planned expedition to Klang, the native city of his parents, he continues: “It happens across the globe and my mission is I would like to be a part of the solution to solve the world's poverty and homeless problem. And I would like everyone to be a part of the solution with my journey to Homeland.”
Travelling across 14 countries will see University of Sheffield graduate endure harsh terrains and arduous weather, and as such, will need to spend just under a third of the money that he raises on expenses. But the more donations he receives means more cash will go to his charity rather than provisions.
Badrul sets off on his ride on August 1st and expects to arrive in the Southeast Asian country by the end of March.
Contributions to his cause can be made via his Just Giving page here.
