In the world of cycling, the UCI Cycling World Championships stands as an event that gathers the finest riders from across the globe, each aiming for triumph on the world stage.
Yet, this year’s championships are set to be particularly momentous, as they mark a profound milestone for two exceptional young adults from Uganda – Paul Lemuria and Lorot Laurence.
Hailing from the streets of Jinja, these extraordinary individuals have overcome momentous obstacles and earned their esteemed positions in this prestigious competition.
Their inspiring story is one that the Modo25 team is immensely proud of, as they have been supported to the UCI Championships with the help of 1moreChild.
1moreChild is our charity partner here at Modo25. Raising money for charity is one of the cornerstones of Modo25. The agency has a bigger purpose at heart and was named after one of the children at the 1moreChild orphanage in Jinja, Uganda.
As a company, Modo25 donates a percentage of profits each year to support 1moreChild and encourage fundraising for local Yorkshire charities.
