In June I will be racing in the Ironman 70.3 in Stafford. It’s called ‘70.3’ because it’s a 70.3 mile (113 km) triathlon, made of a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim, a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride, and a 13.1-mile (21.1 km) run. I’m raising funds for Cool Earth, a Non-Profit Organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to half deforestation. They’ve started in 2007 and have already saved hundreds of millions of acres, provided over 65 billion litres of fresh water to communities, equipped over 14 rainforest schools, and successfully protected over 80 endangered species. If you could spare any change to help them through their amazing project, it would be greatly appreciated!
An area the size of England is lost every year to deforestation in the Amazon alone. Hundreds of species have gone extinct, and many others will go soon. People around the world depend on the rainforest. Not just for food, water, supplies and medicines, but to help stabilise the climate, playing a critical role in global and regional carbon and water cycles. Cool Earth Action revolutionises the protection of the rainforest, by helping indigenous people to improve and grow. That’s how they keep the rainforest
We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
