AS mentioned in earlier articles, once the journey was decided on, the next priority was to select a cause to carry on the ride. I had always felt that it would be a great waste of effort if the ride wasn’t also used to highlight those in need and to help them where we could.
I had wanted the cause, if there would be any, to be related to cancer for personal reasons. My sister succumbed to cancer in 2014. It was her death which sparked my charitable streak soon after, something I wouldn’t have given much thought to had it not been for her untimely death. I suppose it was my way of dealing with the helplessness of watching her fade away. In doing so, perhaps the helplessness of others can also be converted into some measure of hope.
