This August, diplomacy met challenge, grit and determination. H.E. Iain Walker climaxed #theghanagrand on Sunday 18th August 2019 at the Black Star Square in Accra. By cycling over 1000km from the North to the South, we challenged ourselves, kindled necessary conversations about health, tourism and interacted with the many Ghanaians doing incredible things across the country. All proceeds of #theghanagrand๐Ÿšด‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’จ go to the Plastics and Burns Unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. Thank you all our sponsors , #ukinghana staff and our many friends who supported us. Ghana is indeed GRAND! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ

"Asankushun!" (hello in Gonja) Throwing back to our stop at Yapei - a fishing community in the Central Gonja district of the Savannah Region.  H.E. Iain Walker spent quality time with the fishermen and women on the banks of the White Volta. It was all fun and smiles but preceding this; we had a punctured tyre to fix. Not so fun fixing but,  #theghanagrand was about overcoming any and every challenge.  #ukinghana๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ญ

I earned my blue hat ๐Ÿงข! Big thank you to Sir Sam Jonah & all the sponsors who made #theghanagrand possible. A special thanks to @jasmine.akua.kumi for organizing such a great event, @manonropital ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญfor the Brain Project shirt, and ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฟ‍โ™‚๏ธSeargent Baaah & his security forces for keeping us safe on the road. ๐ŸโœŒ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฟ‍โ™‚๏ธ
I joined the final leg of #theghanagrand from Tema—>Accra thinking this will be a piece of cake๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฟ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฟ‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿฟ‍โ™‚๏ธ...boy was I wrong ๐Ÿ˜‚. The African sun was unrelenting with its heat & we had to dodge tro-tros most of the way. But each time we wanted to slow down and take a break, we would see large groups of people from the community standing on the street encouraging us to pedal faster. Super Congrats to British High Commissioner Iain Walker & his team for organizing such a wonderful fundraising event!
