Did you know, the average woman in Malawi lives 6.2km away from her nearest health centre? This means nearly 1 in 30 women die in childbirth in the country, as they have no access to emergency medical care.
But there is a solution: Bicycle Ambulances. Which are used to take women to the hospital quickly.
Urban Kings Gym are working with Women and Children First to try and make a small difference: How long would it take you to ride 6.2km on a state-of-the-art exercise bike at Urban Kings? Test your speed and strength in a unique challenge to raise money for Women and Children First, who help provide Bicycle Ambulances in Malawi.
