Ten senior academics and equine vets from practice have come up with a novel way of raising money to help two worthy equine causes - the SPANA Disabled Riding Centre in Bamako, Mali and the BEVA Trust.
Led by Dr Derek Knottenbelt, they will undertake a 6 day CPD challenge, visiting all 7 British vet schools, to deliver talks on a variety of subjects.
The lecturers will complete a whistle-stop tour between the vet schools in convoy, on their motor bikes! They will cover over 1000 miles and deliver around 35 hours of lectures. The lectures are free - but donations are expected.
This marathon effort takes place at the end of July 2010. Places are limited, but anyone can contribute.
