Registrations are closing shortly for the 13 day ActionAid charity bike ride through Cambodia in March 2011. The trip includes visits to the ruins of Angkor Wat and the city of Phnom Penh and ends with 3 days working alongside a local community on an ActionAid project.
The entire project encompases training, fundraising and the actual trip so that you can experience the reward of your achievement and get in contact with the communities for which you have been fundraising.
All participants set a minimum fundraising target of $6,500 which covers travel and a donation to ActionAid and their work for communities in Cambodia ($3,339 for travel and $3,161 donation breakdown). These First Hand Experience adventures raise between $40,000 and $100,000 on average which will make a massive difference to people’s lives in Cambodia.
While the actual trip does not take place until March, the registration deadline is coming up. If you are registered before November 1st you will go into the draw to win some great prizes; we have great outdoor clothing and accessories from GORE-TEX (value $900), DEUS Cycleworks ($300) and North Sails ($150) as well as a trip from Greater Port Macquarie Tourism ($2,000).
