Paulie Attacks the Yak

Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support-- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

The Yak Attack mountain bike race aims to promote the skills and athleticism of local Nepali riders by putting them to the test on the highest mountain bike race in the world. Over 12 days we will race 400km, climbing over 12km on jeep track, single track, goat track, snow track and sometimes no track, crossing the worlds highest mountain pass Thorung La (5416m). But this year I will be racing for a cause.

Mitrata Nepal is a Nepali run NGO providing holistic care for 65 children living in the home as well as educational scholarships for 45 children to attend local schools. Due to unforeseen circumstances Mitrata Nepal has seen the majority of its funding lost as of January 2012, this will result in a lot of restructuring, relocating, downsizing and many other issues that will have to be faced in the coming months, with such a rocky road ahead we hope to have sufficient funds to sustain the home during this transitional period. Working with the Mountain Fund and the Social Development Centre I aim to raise money for the daily running of Mitrata as a short term priority as well as seek the continued support of possible donors through child sponsorship (full or part) to ensure these children have a brighter future.

Last year I completed the race in 36h 55m and 37s. In 2012 I will be the first international rider to compete twice (March 3-14). The challenge is for me to complete the entire Yak Attack unassisted in under 30 hours, if I am unable to do so I will match the total amount donated*.

* My contribution will be capped at a total of 10, 000 AUD to avoid bankruptcy.
