Pedal power to raise money for needy children in Phuket.
Following on from the success of Ride 4 Kids 2017, preparations and training is underway for Ride 4 Kids V2.0, 2018, to benefit the needy children of Phuket in three different charities, The Good Shepherd, Phuket Has Been Good To Us and Outrigger’s Share 4 Change Program.
On June 11, 2018, 20 riders from around Phuket will jump on the saddle for 700 kms over six days all in the name of charity. They will start in Phuket and will return six days later after cycling through beautiful Phang Nga, Krabi, Surat Thani, Koh Sok and Khao Lak.
The title sponsor for the event is once again Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort together with Pavilions Phuket, The Phuket News and The Thaiger as major sponsors. The entire Phuket community is once again behind the charity ride with fund raising events through out the island scheduled in support including a charity quiz at Underwood’s Art Factory on June 9, 2018 and a touch football tournament at Alan Cook Cricket Ground on June 3, 2018 will all proceeds going to the ride.
Kajonkiet International School Phuket and British International School Phuket and their school networks are also behind the ride with a number or activities being hosted by the schools for the children, including bake sales and ride a thons, all to benefit Ride 4 Kids V2.0. A number of parents and teachers from both school communities are completing the six day adventure. If 700 kms is not possible for you, there is also an opportunity to join the riders to bring them home on the last day with a 100 kms event. Additional riders will join the team for a sumptuous breakfast at JW Marriott Resort and Spa Khao Lak and then jump in the saddle too, for the last 100 kms to Outrigger Laguna Beach Resort Phuket.
A welcome home party for the riders, crew, their friends and families has be arranged at Outrigger’s Metzo’s Bar and Bistro. “As the title sponsor for the event, hosting the welcome home party is our pleasure, we are excited once again to be part of the event” said General Manager, Tony Pedroni, who is also doing the ride with his wife Annie Pedroni.
Organiser, Donna Toon from The Thaiger says, “We hope to follow up from last year and break the million baht target” with the support and momentum already garnished with the event so far, looks like the target could be achieved.
The Thaiger is proud to be supporting this event and wish all the riders and crew and safe journey.
