Daisy is a superstar tiny change maker. Not only is she already a multiple time Scottish Cross-Country Mountain Bike Champion and Scottish Cyclocross Champion; she’s also taking on an epic challenge for the first ever Make Tiny Changes Month.
Last year, Daisy’s cycling coach and Tiny Changes first ambassador, Rab Wardell passed away. “I really want to be able to do something in his memory and raise money for an amazing charity that I know was so close to his heart,” Daisy says.
Daisy decided that for Make Tiny Changes Month, she would get involved by riding a 3-day off-road cycling route of 220km with 3366m of elevation – that’s more than twice as high as Ben Nevis. Oh, and she’s going for this over 2 days, not the usual 3! We know Rab would love this challenge and we hope we can cheer you on almost as loud as he would. We’re so proud of you Daisy.
The route starts and finishes in Edinburgh, called The Capital Trail and Daisy has decided to take this epic challenge on over just 2 days, and will be pedalling with her Dad.
“I am very excited for my challenge; it’s going to be the hardest thing I have ever done but it’s for a very good cause – so it will all be worth it!”
Cycling is a great way to get ourselves out of our heads and into our bodies, and into the outdoors – it can help to reduce stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression.
You can support Daisy and her Dad’s challenge by visiting their fundraising page, here. We love hearing from tiny change makers all over the world – without your creative and enthusiastic ideas for fundraisers, we could not keep supporting children and young people’s mental health through early intervention projects. Thank you for your support, dedication and work to help young minds feel better.
