Emma’s #HUGE Challenge

I’m Emma, the technology/website/social media ‘person’ and ever since visiting Nabugabo and meeting the community I have wanted to do something more to support the HUGE Partnership. 2016 has become the year and the #HUGE Challenge was born; 9 challenges in 9 months culminating in riding from London to Paris in 24 hours. The challenges are a combination of cycling and outdoor swimming plus a booze and sugar free January (I am between knee surgeries hence the mix of challenges and the 9 months rather than 12!) So far all on track (just!); turns out outdoor swimming is considerably harder in Springtime
