Full Text: In January 2012, Gizele Price, a high school mathematics teacher from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, began a bicycling journey that will take her almost 12,000 kilometers (about 7,456 miles) down the length of Africa to raise money to restore sight and prevent blindness in Africa. Ms. Price left Cairo in January and is expected to arrive in Cape Town in four months. She is hoping to raise $2 (Canadian) for every kilometer of the ride for Seva Canada, a nonprofit international eye care organization founded in Vancouver that works to create local sustainable eye care programs.
