Miles and hope, a sports initiative of International Christian Center is on its 5th year with proceeds from this tour going towards educating poor and vulnerable children at Jabali schools. When Miles and Hope started, it was just a dream to cycle 10 KM, 30KM and finally 100KM. Times have changed, we are now doing over 100KM in our training sessions. The group has increased in membership. Miles and Hope team also boosts a strong team of ladies who cycle alongside men.
Through this initiative, we have become a family, a family that keep their blood circulation through cycling. We cycle everywhere, to the office and back home, its has become part of what we do on a daily basis. Cycling has been proven to be a very active and healthy sport, and its promotes the reduction of carbon emission.
