Do you like walking, running or cycling in nature? That’s great, because it’s good both for your body and mind! Would you like to give something back to nature? Then embark on our 100K for Nature challenge!
The idea is simple: walk, run or cycle over the span of 8 weeks (between 23 October to 18 December), to complete a total of 100 km, get sponsored by friends and family and raise money to help us continue our work to protect nature in Cyprus. Which of our specific causes you will support with your campaign is up to you.
100% of the funds raised by this campaign will support targeted conservation actions.
