Note: the Livingstone200 is complete…and you can read about it here.

David Livingstone is a Ugandan man, who, having suffered as a child solider, is now trying to help those around him rebuild their lives. Many in Uganda are struggling to survive after decades of brutal internal conflict. The video below gives some idea of the trauma caused by this conflict.

On Saturday February the 16th, 2013, I will be skating the Livingstone200: a fundraiser to help David build classrooms and provide livestock and farming equipment to those around him. Over the course of the day I will attempt to skate 200km, a distance almost twice what I have managed before. Your support in this event would be most appreciated.

We are still accepting sponsorship, which can be made through the Crossroads Foundation online payment system. Please enter “Livingstone200” in the “What For?” section. I know that every cent donated will be appreciated by the people David is trying to help. Payment will be .
