Hands Across the Water was founded in 2005 to help children orphaned by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. Since then, through various fundraising programs, the Australian charity has raised over $27 million, dollars and now runs seven homes and projects throughout Thailand, supporting over 350 Thai children and their communities.
The foundation’s annual Ride to Provide is an epic long-distance bike ride, covering 800 scenic kilometres along the Gulf of Thailand in eight days. Money raised provides critical funding for this remarkable charity.
While borders are closed, Hand Across the Water has launched challenge here in Australia. The 100k Challenge for the month of September is a challenge to help raise $100k. The challenge invites individuals, work place colleagues, families and friends to join the Foundation and walk, run, swim, or ride their way towards 100km in the month of September.
There will be lots of engagement points through the month with various activities people may wish to join including the launch of the Podcast Hands Heroes where founder Peter Baines will be having conversations with some pretty extraordinary people.
We have long enjoyed your support and this is our small way of returning value during these challenging times.
The challenge is FREE to join and no minimum fundraising. Check out the challenge and share it with those who you feel may enjoy the incentive to move a little more in September and hear from the kids in Thailand that Hands Across the Water supports.
