My project of cycling around Europe for the benefit of diabetes was also affected by the coronavirus. In a context where the Covid-19 epidemic led to the closure of European borders, I had to make the decision to cancel this adventure.
The postponement to later was not possible because I commit myself to another horizon, professionally, by enlisting in the army to become a dog handler .
I was preparing this project since September 2019, for a departure in April 2020 . During my 4500 kilometers journey through 6 European countries, my intention was to:
● raise awareness of people with diabetes
● raise funds for the association Aides aux Jeunes Diabétiques (AJD)
This last goal is close to my heart and I decided to give back to the AJD all the money of the generous donors who have supported me from the beginning.
Many thanks to Six Moon Designs for your support and confidence!
