Nazareth made a big impact on me as a medical student back in 1993. This wonderful little Palestinian-Israeli city is Jesus' hometown, and a symbol of hope in the Middle East. OK, I'm an atheist, but our group includes Christians, Muslims and Jews - we all want to see peace blossom through healthcare.
So I'm off to join the Nazareth Challenge 2019 in March - we're biking 350km from Tel Aviv to Nazareth via the Dead Sea and West Bank. We're paying our own way, and raising money for the Maternity Unit in Nazareth Hospital - a place that makes a real difference. I'll be strapping a Raspberry Pi computer to my bike and taking sensor readings all the way down to the Dead Sea, so this is also in the name of Science!
You can be part of the Nazareth story too - please support us by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about The Nazareth Trust, the greater the impact we can have, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot! (And maybe come on a bike ride yourself some day...)
