Action4Diabetics are limbering up once again for a cycle challenge to save and transform the lives of young people living with Type 1 Diabetes in South-East Asia: The Italian Job 2.
The ride will be taking place between 7 – 14 September in partnership with Punto Tours in Italy. See below for more details!
It is one of the greatest moments in cinematic history. A bus, loaded with gold and crooks, gets stuck on the precipice between fortune and failure.
However, unlike the 1969 film, The A4D Cycle Challenge 2017: ‘The Italian Job’ had no such conundrum. The money raised from the ‘job’ went towards providing essential medication and care to disadvantaged young people with Type 1 Diabetes in South East Asia. All $35,000 of it. And the A4D Team, along with our friends at Punto Tours, finished the trip with a celebratory glass of prosecco, safe on the shores of the beautiful Lake Como. The support bus was returned, intact, to its owner.
How could you better this? What could come next? The answer came again from Punto Tours. Over email. The itinerary for the A4D Cycle Challenge 2018: The Vuelta De Los Pyrenees. It was a blockbuster ride, and by the time the 17 strong A4D Team reached Toulouse they had raised over $71,000 for A4D.
The Italian Job 2
And now we go again, back to Italy and the hills of the Emilia-Romagna for the Italian Job 2. It promises to be slightly less mountainous than our previous two rides, but all the funds raised will still go directly towards supporting 125 children with essential Insulin and Blood Glucose testing equipment for one year. If that is not reason enough to become an A4D Challenger, then I am not sure what will. Apart from the wine, and Italian sun of course.
Join us as we attempt, once more, to blow the blooming doors off!
