Festival Notice Board: Inaugural NGO cycling event needs riders

Angkor Wat Bike Rally manager Nicky McGavin is still waiting for Siem Reap businesses to sign up and commit to competing in the inaugural cycling race on December 6, as part of the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon, to start on December 7.

She said that several bars and restaurants had expressed enthusiasm about competing in the event, but to date none have actually signed on the dotted line, and time to register is running out.

The bike rally is run autonomously by the Village Focus International NGO in conjunction with the planning group behind the marathon, and all funds raised by the bike rally will help fund the NGO's work.

McGavin said the NGO will receive a weighty contribution this year with a very unusual donation from the Sun family of Hong Kong, who have been long-time supporters of Village Focus.

Daughter Molly Sun will be in Siem Reap for the bike rally, and the day before, she will make the extra-special donation as a way of boosting the NGO's funding for the Sunrise Children's Orphanage.

But at this stage, the nature of the donation is top secret.
