Fundraising cycling event to feature China’s scenic spots

On May 6 to 10, 2011, a fundraising event will be held with this in mind: to help eradicate poverty, lack of proper access to education as well as HIV/AIDS incidences among the children in rural China. The event, dubbed “Warriors to Wall Ride,” and spearheaded by non-profit organization Le Kids (www.lekids.org) will start from Xian, from the home of the ancient Terra-cotta Warriors to iconic Great Wall of China, and which will finish at Tiananmen Square in Beijing. The challenging route will take riders on an unforgettable journey visiting World Heritage sites and world famous attractions in Mainland China.

And did we mention that “Warriors to Wall Ride” will be an endurance cycling event? On May 6, the riders will gun off from Xian’s Terra-cotta Warriors and will end up at Weinan City. Total cycling distance is a whopping 100 kilometers. On the second day, May 7, the riders will begin from Fenglingdu Yellow River Bridge and will end at Yuncheng City for a total cycling distance of 115 km. Not only does the second day have more miles to cover but it’s even more difficult to finish, given that the trail will include climbing. By May 8, riders will be treated to the panoramic visuals of a 90 kilometer ride covering Yima to Luoyang City. May 9 will cover 80 kilometers of challenging trails from Luoyang to ShaolinTemple to Anyang City. On the last day, the participants will tread a total of 100 kilometers from Juyongguan The Great Wall to Summer Palace and finally to Tiananmen Square, at the heart of Beijing. Truly, given the schedule and challenges involved in this race, a lot of people are interested and excited.

One of them is Douglas White of Prosperity Research Digital Agency. White shares that to be a part of a worthwhile cause is part of their community and corporate responsibility. “More than anything else, I think to be a part of this cause that’s for the benefit of children in rural China is a blessing,” he shared.
