Ride2Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation, with the sole purpose to increase awareness and funds to help combat child trafficking and abuse.
Originally Ride2Rescue was created by four friends who travelled from London to Melbourne on bicycles for this cause. In fourteen months they cycled 24,000 km through 27 countries exposing the reality of child trafficking that exists throughout the world. Child Trafficking is said to be the third most profitable industry worldwide, after drugs and weapons.
Each year Ride2Rescue will be organising a group bicycle ride through South East Asia. Lead by London to Melbourne riders Daniel Seehusen and John Clark you will have a fantastic adventure travel experience but will also make a difference. With all participants expected to fundraise for our partner charity Child Wise Cambodia.
Child Wise Cambodia
is a child protection organisation committed to the prevention
of child abuse, exploitation and trafficking in Cambodia.
In December 2013 the inaugural Ride2Rescue group ride hit the road cycling from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The trip was a massive success as our group of 21 riders raised almost $40,000 for the cause.
Child Trafficking occurs every day, children are being sold for as little as $10 into underground brothels, sweat shops and recruited to fight in wars.
Now is the time to make a difference, take on a cycling challenge with Ride2Rescue!
