Hi , my name is Joe and I am the Volunteer Manager at FDC.
I am a Kiwi that has lived in Cambodia for around 4 &1/2 years now.
I see first hand daily the children that attend our school and know a fair bit about their backgrounds. They come not only from a life of poverty but can also suffer daily exposure to sexual, physical and mental abuse, neglect, malnourishment and generally a seemingly hopeless outlook for their future.
We at FDC can provide the opportunity for them to improve their lives by way of free education and other support projects
The Charity Bike ride for 2019 gives me the opportunity to continue to support the Khmer people by helping to keep the doors open at FDC.
I am looking forward to the challenge of riding 650km along with the training beforehand partly to prove to myself that “I still have it” and also to dispel any rumours that I don’t. Having just celebrated my big Six O it’s important to not sit on your bum watching the days go by (unless you are watching the All Blacks beat everyone!).
I will be dedicating this ride to a great mate of mine in NZ that sadly passed away earlier this year. Johnny was an avid mountain bike rider who I know will be following me closely and giving me stick if I don't pull finger!
This one's for you mate.
