Bring awareness and raise funds for victims of human trafficking in Southeast Asia by engaging in Project FUTURES’ Challenge Ride.  In this once in a lifetime experience you will cycle through Vietnam and Cambodia in a 400 km (250 miles) journey through villages and orchards.  Witness the groundbreaking work of the Somaly Mam Foundation’s shelters as they strive to rescue and empower women and children from exploitation and slavery.   

Our total fundraising goal of $225,000 is to be met through the combined efforts of 30 participants, therefore each person will have to raise $7,500 before March 9th 2013.
