Ride for Nokor Tep - Four Months to Go!
With just under 4 months to go there are an increasing number of riders committing to participating in the Ride for Nokor Tep.
The ride starts in Siem Reap on Monday 7th September 2015 and will finish in Phnom Penh on Friday 11th September 2015. This is a great opportunity to support the development of Nokor Tep whilst seeing the sights of Cambodia.
More details are contained in the Ride for Nokor Tep newsletter #4.
Dear fans and supporters of Ride for Nokor Tep,
With just under 4 months to go now we hope to see more riders commit to this great cause, and we need you to do this by clicking on the link below or the one above which takes you straight to the Spice Roads registration page.
Last week I caught up with a friend who had never been to Cambodia and was departing that same day for a 4 day holiday to Siem Reap and then Phnom Phen. I was excited when I heard this because his organisation was one which I was hoping would sponsor our ride and I thought this would be a great opportunity for he and his partner to see the country and capture first hand the lack of facilities for women health care. I caught up with them when they returned on Friday and they both looked at me and shook their heads and commented on 'how lucky we all are'.
'Nokor Tep' meaning 'Field of Dreams' truly is a great cause and its time we did our bit to help get this hospital finished.
The Ride For Nokor Tep Tour Page is up and waiting for your commitment on the Spice Roads site. You can now put your money where your mouth is and sign up for the ride by clicking on this link -> " Don't call me Gunna" <- or the link provided above.
The last few weeks we have secured our hydration sponsor, Nuun who will provides us with electrolyte tabs for the ride. We also secured a deal with Cuore Jersey's who create a high quality jersey (same as the Strava jerseys and also those worn by team IAM).
PLEASE, it's now time to commit and SIGN UP and also start getting some SPONSORS and DONATIONS
Also most important thing is the donation portals are up and waiting for your friends, family, colleagues, uncles, aunties, neighbours and the milkman to start donating and following this great cause.
The website is up and running with the new donation portals.
All the payment portals are on the site so you can just point your friends to one place and have them pick their preferred option of donating, or you can simply insert all or one of the below links into your donation email;
Please remember, when asking your friends to donate, make sure that they mention your name in the comments on the donation portal, so we can track who the funds are for, for example "Go Quinny, you chicken legged Legend!" or " Harden Up Sam, your pedalling for the Women of Cambodia"
Here is the fundraising portals;
United States -> http://www.tabithausa.org/Tabitha_USA/Donate_Now.html
Singapore & United Kingdom -> https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/ridefornokortepcambodia1
Now is the time to start chasing the corporates as we only have 8 weeks to go to finalise the jersey so we need commitment from corporates asap. Here is a sponsor deck to help with the conversation. Click here -> Sponsorship Deck
To help stir up more donations and also to get your face on the website and Facebook, I need some profile pics of you either training or chilling with a short paragraph as to why you have chosen to take part in this great cause. For the old timers, unless you want me to use your old one, send a revised pic and or story.
Now start training, fund raising and spreading the word. Lets raise that money and get the hospital well on its way to completion.
Don't forget to join our Strava group and start revving up your fellow riders.
Now, if you don't have a mountain bike and looking to buy a new one, let me know as I sell Storck's and can do you a really good deal on one.
Again, ride dates are Monday September 7th 2015 till Friday September 11th 2015 inclusive. Please ensure you are checked in at least 1 day before the ride.
