CamKids wins funding from Gulf For Good

Gulf for Good (G4G), is a charitable organisation based in Dubai, which organises international challenge events to raise money for worthwhile causes in the area in which the challenge takes place.

CamKids is pleased to announce that it has been selected by G4G as the recipient of the next event, The Great Asian Cycling Challenge, which takes place from 26 March to 4 April 2009 in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Starting at the ancient city of Ho Chi Minh (formerly known as Saigon), participants will ride through the heartland of the Vietnamese Mekong Delta on paved, small country roads along the flat river valley of the Co Chien River. More flat roads, with a few short small hills surrounded by shimmering rice paddies will take them to the border with Cambodia, via Temples and Khmer villages to the magnificent ruins of the Angkor Wat Temple complex. The last day will take the participants along an excellent route on dirt and sand tracks and rural paved road through typical Cambodian countryside.

This will be G4G's 24th challenge. The challenges have included trekking, cycling & kayaking adventures in Morocco, Egypt, India, Tanzania, Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, the UAE, Jordan, Sri Lanka and Peru. So far, around 400 people of 30 different nationalities have taken part, ranging in age from 15 to 70. Over £700,000 has been raised for charities in the above and neighbouring countries.
