Cord’s Chief Executive Brian Wakley and Asia Regional Director Dennis McMahon will be cycling over 800 miles to raise funds for Cord.
The keen peddlers will visit to each capital city in Great Britain & Ireland, in just 7 days from 23-30 June. Brian will even be donning a tiara and sash to show that peace isn’t just the dream of beauty queens!
You can stay up to date with the progress of the challenge on twitter #pedal4peace or on Cord’s Facebook page.
1.5 billion people in the world live in countries affected by conflict. In recent weeks the UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres has warned that displacement from conflict is being compounded by a combination of causes including climate change, urbanization, food insecurity, water scarcity and resource competition.
