Chile to Kili is an around the world bike ride to raise money to send 10 Tanzanian students to college to study wildlife conservation and/or natural resource management. The cyclist: Elvis, a 25-year old Tanzanian man who set out to travel from South America all the way around to Mount Kilimanjaro, locating and carrying his own food, shelter and resources throughout the trip.
You can join the ride by fundraising, making a donation, offering a place to stay or a hot meal and, actually getting in the saddle yourself!
Thanks to Georgina for telling me about Elvis's story!
