The second year of this charity event to raise funds for Baan Jing Jai who now have 70 children resident in the orphanage living in very cramped conditions. Their aim is to raise sufficient funds to be able to build and move to larger premises.
They have joined forces with the cycle club of Pattaya and have invited VIPs to participate at 1,500 baht per head which includes anyone from Pattaya Sports Club who would like to take part.
Everything contingency has been taken care of for they have medical staff in attendance in the event that someone does not feel well or have an accident and they have an arrangement with the traffic police to join them as security and refreshments will be carried along the route for the participants. Nothing is left to chance.
They will leave Nongprue City Hall, with the Deputy Mayor and officials of City Hall seeing them off at 8 am and cycle to Bang Chang circling Horseshoe Point on the return journey and complete the event back at Nongprue City Hall.
They hope to raise 100,000 baht plus and welcome any donations that may be forthcoming.
For those members that know Pierre Bietry, you will not recognize him in cycling mode. Here he is dressed to complete the 75 kilometres. Many of the younger children only attempted the short course of 16 kilometres but there were many tired weary bodies at the end of the day.
Pattaya Sports Club responded to Baan Jing Jai’s request for help and were welcomed by the Deputy Mayor, Khun Piantah and other City hall officials.
