The Side by Side ride is back!

Will you smash 200kms in 2 weeks for Cambodian families in need?

Side by Side Ride 2022

In January this year, 30 of our students and 65 international supporters embarked on a 200km fundraising challenge which has enabled us to continue to provide life-saving support to REACH's impoverished families... it is because of these incredible supporters that our charity has made it through this tough time.

The events we hosted for our youth in Siem Reap were unforgettable. Our students spent 4 months in the lead up to their challenge training in our REACH Riders Club, come January they were able to cycle 200kms in 2 days for their community. It was their first time ever to camp overnight with friends, they peddaled their hearts out in support of their own NGO, crossing over the finish line with a sense of achievement like never before.

While the youth carried out the challenge on the ground in Siem Reap, their sponsors were completing their km's in their home countries, running/riding/walking "Side by Side" with us!

These incredible international participants completed their 200kms over 2 weeks, and finished their challenge at the exact same time as our students...It was truly magical.

THE CURRENT SITUATION

In Siem Reap, we have been in and out of extreme lock downs, at present, we are unable to gather with our students, but as soon as we can, we will have the cycling club operating again.

We are hoping to still be able to host the local event in January 2022, this event was life-changing for our youth. As a group they enjoyed hours upon hours of healthy fitness, team building, and laughter with friends. For some, it was their ticket out of laborious jobs, and for all of them, it was their daily respite from unimaginable home struggles.

Currently, due to restrictions our hands are tied.

We have everything planned and ready to go and we will do everything we can to pull this event off, but in such uncertain times, we are not yet comfortable seeking sponsorship for our youths to to cycle here in Siem Reap. That doesn't mean you can't gear up to complete the 200kms in 2 weeks your home country. Registration is now open, and now more than ever, we need your support!
