Swansea Students Take On Epic Motorcycle Challenge In Aid Of WAA
Two Swansea University students are taking on the journey of a lifetime, travelling from South Wales to Russia on 125cc motorbikes in aid of Wales Air Ambulance.
Jack King and Aaron Goodfellow, Masters students of Mechanical Engineering, are completing the 10,000-mile Mongol Rally to raise lifesaving funds for the welsh helicopter charity.
Team Gradical will set off on their cross-country adventure on July 16, setting off from Swansea to journey through Europe to cross the rally’s finish line in Ulan-Ude, Eastern Russia.
Jack King said: “We will cross borders, seas and ride some of the most badly maintained roads in the world.
“It’s going to be Hardcore. It’s going to raise a ton of money for Charity!”
The motorcycling duo aim to raised £1,000 for Wales Air Ambulance, to help the charity fund its lifesaving missions across Wales.
Wales Air Ambulance needs to raise £6 million every year to funds its services, which can be anywhere in Wales within 20 minutes.
Mark Stevens, Wales Air Ambulance Fundraising Manager, said: “As a charity, we rely on kind support to keep our helicopters flying and we are incredibly grateful that Jack and Aaron would chose to support us during their epic motorcycle challenge.
“Jack and Aaron are taking on an adventure of a lifetime, and are raising lifesaving donations as they do it!”
