The Beijing Biddies Challenge is becoming very real!

Beijing Biddies £150K charity challenge sponsored vehicleWe are two like-minded women on a mission, embarking on this challenging journey of a lifetime through unknown territory on 1st May 2014. This is less than four months away and so much is happening that our heads are spinning, the phone doesn’t stop ringing and planning is going full steam ahead! Edwina has just started her advanced driving course, we have created our own fundraising wine club, others are hosting events on our behalf and we have some incredible sponsors for equipment, advertising, nutritional supplements, GPS kit and much more to be announced shortly!

So what exactly is the challenge for the Beijing Biddies?

Take a look at our trailer to get a feel for the size of our challenge, and read on for a bit more detail.

Our challenge is to reach our destination of Beijing in China within 30 days, without support and with minimal comfort! This is an incredibly tight timeframe and we have an extremely challenging target of £150.000 to support two of the most worthwhile charities, Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. We know that with your support we can do it! We have amazing sponsors who are helping us every step of the way and we will be announcing some amazing news soon about the car!
