Children’s hospital charity bike ride set for Dec 18

The 7th Annual Cycling for Environment and Children’s Health fundraising event, initiated by the Cycling For Cambodia (CFC) community, will take place on December 18 in the hopes of raising money for Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap town.

The event will kick off at 6am at the Siem Reap Art Center Night Market on the east bank of the Siem Reap River – opposite the Phsar Chas Market (Old Market) – and follow a route southward to Athvear Pagoda in Siem Reap commune’s Kakranh village.

Cyclists will then take a 30-minute break at the Buddhist monastery before continuing to Phnom Krom Eco Resort in neighbouring Krasaing Roloeng village of the same commune.

CFC noted that the entry fee would be $20, but that participants would get a T-shirt, a facemask, drinking water, lunch and a snack, as well as the chance to cycle “for the sake of personal health, to strengthen friendships, and to save the lives of children” through the AHC.

The hospital on December 6 welcomed the initiative and urged more participation. “All the money raised from this event will be donated to the AHC. Let’s make this a massive event,” it said in a Facebook post.

The AHC is located on Preah Sangreach Tep Vong Street a couple of blocks west of Wat Bo Bridge which crosses the Siem Reap River, in Svay Dangkum commune’s Mondul 1 village.
