BENEFITING: Teen Cancer America
EVENT DATE: Jan 24, 2014
The Truants are getting back on their bicycles to raise funds for heroic youth-related charities. The USA-based Truants are cycling for Teen Cancer America, a charity launched by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend with a mission to improve the quality of life of teens and young adults with cancer.
The Truants Cambodia 2014 Cycling Challenge will be the fourth Truants charity bike ride. The first three rides –with 43 riders along the Nile in 2010, 25 in Cuba in 2011 and 41 to Morocco in Oct 2012 - raised profits between them of £754,250 which was donated to Nordoff Robbins, Childline and Teenage Cancer Trust (the UK-based counterpart to Teen Cancer America).
Entrance to the Truants is by invitation only and they come from all walks of life but a poor sense of humor, high endurance of extreme pain and a love of sport and, especially, associated activities, is a good start. Cambodia will see 40+ good men and true, including a few ladies, make a great effort to reach our ambitious target for the ride - £245,750 - which would enable us to reach our overall target of ONE MILLION POUNDS (over $1,600,000 in today’s money) donated to these wonderful children's charities.
Kindly note that all costs associated with the ride are paid personally by each Truant.
