My House to Your House

Like many of life’s great ideas, My House to Your House was born over a few beers between a couple of guys with a thirst for a challenge. Here’s how it is…

The Challenge?

To get from Rog’s house (a boat under Albert Bridge) in Battersea, London to Olly’s house in Amsterdam. That’s 537km, in five days, by manpower alone, and preferably in one piece. By bike. On foot. Oh yes, and a relay swim across the English Channel. Not forgetting the nine months of rigorous and all consuming training to turn a team of ten thirty-somethings (coming in varying degrees of physical refinement) into mean, lean, power machines…

This is about a group of ordinary guys making an extraordinary journey, having one hell of a good time on the way, and raising a load of cash for a great cause while they’re at it. The challenge begins on 30 June 2013.

For a great cause…

The 2013 team will be raising money for Parkinson’s UK, which works to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson’s. Will’s dad has Parkinson’s, so this means a lot to Will, and a lot to the whole team. The fundraising target is £53,000, or about £10 for every kilometre covered by every person taking part. Every £1000 raised funds a cutting edge research project for a week. So, if we reach our target, we’ll have funded research to find a cure and to improve treatment for those living with Parkinson’s for a whole year. And we think that sounds pretty great. Please support our challenge to help make extraordinary things happen.

It’s really easy to donate. Visit our JustGiving page or if you are in the UK text MHYH53 to 700 70 (texts are free and you are able to choose how much to give).

Thanks. We really appreciate it.

Some words of wisdom…

6 June 2013… With three weeks to go and nearly £47,000 in the fundraising pot, Will Greenwood, England world cup winning rugby legend shows his support to the My House To Your House team. Amazing.
