Wheel2Wheel founder finishes amazing 125-day adventure

July 14, 2011

Morgan Parker, founder of non profit organization Wheel2Wheel, has come home…and he even arrived in style. Arriving on the 4th July at around noon, he was welcomed by friends, family, local motorbike riders as well as supporters. He led a pack of people mighty proud of his achievement. After all, how long has it been since a Brisbane, Australia native finished some 25,000 kilometers through Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Timor-Leste and finally in his native Australia? We may be wrong but we have a feeling that no other Australian has done something like this…and all for charity!

Truly, what Morgan Parker did was an amazing feat. His transcontinental charitable motorcycle expedition took him 125 days on the road but in all these 10 countries, he was able to raise awareness and even provide financial assistance to 10 brilliant yet under-recognized charitable organizations throughout Asia and Australia. To say that what Morgan Parker did was truly inspirational may even still be an understatement.

The Wheel2Wheel founder rode his trusty BMW F800GS motorbike through some of the region’s most beautiful and challenging terrain. He has truly shown persistence, will, dedication and passion for the under-privileged. His feat has become a reminder for those who have lost hope. His feat also serves as an inspiration for those who want to become heroes in their own right. Nothing is impossible. One can start small and one can also start with a big bang. What’s important is that one DOES something.

Morgan Parker’s feat is a great example of someone out there who is willing to cross borders, if only to help some people in need.

Wheel2Wheel is an innovative independent non-profit organisation created to raise awareness and provide financial assistance to brilliant yet under-recognised charitable organisations throughout Australasia. Wheel2Wheel is carbon neutral and entirely self-funded.

Successful charity bike ride across China raises US $140,000

May 23, 2011

A fundraising cum endurance biking event dubbed “Warriors to Wall Ride” was held last May 6 – 10, 2011 and with a whopping total of US $140,000.00 raised, the event was nothing short of a certified astounding success!

The event, which was spearheaded by non profit organization Le Kids (www.lekids.org), aimed to help eradicate poverty, lack of proper access to education as well as HIV/AIDS incidences among the children in rural China. Participants underwent endurance cycling challenges from Xian (from the home of the ancient Terra-cotta Warriors to iconic Great Wall of China) to historic Tiananmen Square in Beijing. The challenging route took the riders on an unforgettable journey visiting World Heritage sites and world famous attractions in Mainland China.

One of the participants who treaded hundreds of kilometers is Douglas White, top honcho of Prosperity Research Digital Agency or PRDA. White served as the daily blogger during the event and PRDA provided social media expertise. For 4 days, White did not only participate in the bike ride but also gave updates on the challenging trails, schedules and breaks. He also took the time out to describe the majestic sceneries along the way.

White said that he and his agency took part in the worthwhile cause not only because it is part of their community and corporate responsibility efforts but also because he believed that to be part of the event was a blessing.

“Le Kids aims to help children in rural China get what they truly deserve – access to education, proper health and nutrition and good quality of life. To be a part of a drive that aims to help children become stronger, more empowered human beings is something that I will no doubt be eager to be a part of,” White stressed.

The money raised – a whopping US $140,000 was turned over to the Chi Heng Foundation.
