A ride to grant wishes and find a kidney.

Ian Stevens of Italy, will depart on a the ride of a lifetime via bicycle, on August 1st, 2018. Entering and exiting 10 countries, Ian is raising money for the Round Table Children’s Wish as well as trying to find a kidney for a young man in the United States.

Round Table Children's Wish

Round Table Children’s Wish is a registered charity dedicated to granting handcrafted wishes for children and young people with life threatening illnesses across Britain and Ireland. Donations made through the link below will go directly and fully to the RTCW.

A Kidney for Dan

Dan Dilsaver of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania USA, was diagnosed with a genetic Kidney Disease in 2016 at age 27. The onset was sudden and shocking as he is an otherwise healthy young man. Dan is looking for a kidney donation to save his life. Please share this site and help us spread the word.

Support for Ian

Ian, born in Zimbabwe, started planing his epic ride as a means to look for work. With his history of charity work it then dawned on him that this ride could be so much more, but he needs your help.

Give to Ian and and help make his trip possible!

Round Table Children’s Wish

RTCW is dedicated to deliver the most personalized wish possible. It is their goal to grant a wish that creates long-lasting memories for all involved at a time when a wish is most needed.

Donations made through this link will go directly and fully to the RTCW.

A Kidney for Dan

Before Dan’s trip to the ICU, he was living a healthy lifestyle. The genetic disease called IgA Nephropathy, or Berger’s Disease, had caused his kidneys to stop working completely.

Dan now must undergo nightly dialysis treatments to filter his blood of toxins, a process normally handled by the kidneys. But this is not a permanent solution, dialysis is typically hard on the patient’s body and shortens the patients lifespan.

The good news? Dan could resume a fairly normal life if he were to receive a kidney from a donor, and Ian Stevens wants to help get the word out and potentially save this young mans life.

Kidney donations are only accepted from the most healthy individuals and are thoroughly screened. UPMC has a team dedicated solely to donors and their well-being. They are willing to help answer any questions and inquiries.

 

Help Ian Make the Ride

Ian’s trip is slated to ride though Austria, Czeck Rep, Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Portugal, and then back through Spain and France, to catch the ferry across to the UK so he can finish the loop in London. This is the equivalent of riding from Maine to California and back.

Ian needs a lot of support to keep him to make his trip possible. Give to Ian or follow him on Facebook.

Thanks for your time and attention. We hope you will support us and share.
