Our Success So Far
In 2012 Kwik Kopy and the charity Hands Across the Water came together to develop the Kwik Kopy Hands Classic, a cycling and fundraising experience for those who dare to don the lycra and ride some serious kilometres. The riders completed an 850km course, making their way from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, Mudgee, Lithgow, the Blue Mountains and Windsor (before returning back to Sydney), in a gruelling six-day ride.
Each of the riders put in a fantastic effort raising money to bring to life the new project and exceeded their target of $120,000 which will be used to fund a refuge in Thailand for children rescued from enforced prostitution.
In 2013, riders embarked on another gruelling six day journey, this time to the Snowy Mountains, which gave advanced riders the chance to trace the steps of the famous “Sea to Summit” ride, covering the 255km from the Merimbula coast to the highest peak, Mt. Kosciuszko, in 2 days.
Once again, the riders put in a fantastic effort. The funds raised will allow Hands Across the Water to continue its work to support children who are rescued from enforced prostitution, in addition to being able to respond to other people in desperate need.
