After an incredible week-long adventure, the Taj Mahal Cycling Team have made it to their final destination - the Taj Mahal.
Today began with a drive towards Agra, visiting the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri, built by the Emperor Akbar in 1569, on the way. The city is remarkably well-preserved, and the team were able to see the Jama Masjid and the tomb of Salim Chisti.
When they arrived in Agra, the team visited Agra Fort, before heading to the Taj Mahal in time for sunset; which was truly breathtaking. Listed as one of the new seven wonders of the world, their visit to the Taj Mahal was the perfect way to end the challenge of a lifetime.
They've pedalled over 400km, given back to local communities, fully immersed themselves into the culture of India and finally ticked off seeing one of the seven wonders of the world. This trip has been jam-packed and the team are exhausted, but what a truly special experience they've had - we think it could be our best challenge yet!
We've certainly been looking through the pictures and hearing about this year's trip wishing we were there... have you? In September 2020, we're visiting another wonder of the world; the Great Wall of China. Be a part of our team: register your interest today!
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
