This is not a charity event. You may however, if you wish, raise sponsorship in aid of Burmese Refugees (and the funds raised will go directly to the Burma border areas via Burma Action Ireland (BAI)) or you may get sponsorship for your own favourite charity or do neither, the choice is yours. This is a cycling holiday and, at the same time, Burma Action Ireland will organise some public awareness raising about BURMA en route with press releases and photo opportunities.
