REACH RIDERS CLUB
To attend sports fields and organised sporting events in Cambodia, children have to pay an entry fee. With limited access to physical education in public schools, impoverished children are often excluded from sporting activities.
The REACH Riders club is a recreational club for students over the age of 12 years old to promote good physical and consequently, good mental health. This club hosts up to 45 youths each year, who sign up to take part in club rides in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
The rides are scheduled around students public-school commitments, and to maintain their place in the club, all REACH Riders must maintain high attendance rates at their public school and REACH classes. The club heads out on long-distance weekend rides to the World Heritage Angkor Wat site and through the nearby bush tracks and jungle trails!
Each year, up to 20 REACH Riders who have demonstrated the most commitment to their education are selected to join our annual “Side by Side” event. This major fundraising event involves the selected youths taking part in their first-time camping adventure, riding 200kms in 2 days across Cambodia, whilst international supporters raise funds on their behalf.
This event gives our youths so much pride, as they complete the challenge and their sponsors raise money to support our NGO, thus further promoting responsibility.
