Six LJ Hooker agents will ride from Bangkok to Khao Lak in Thailand this coming January raising money and awareness for the charity, Hands Across the Water, (www.handsacrossthewater.org.au)

This is no Sunday-morning pedal! It is an eight-day, 800 kilometre journey through salt fields, shrimp farms, by towering cliff faces and stunning coastline before arriving at the final destination and orphanages built by the charity.

The LJ Hooker riders are Paul Moore and Jason Gegg (QLD), Stewart Kirkby (NSW),Emma Mullins (ACT), Rebecca Freeman (WA) and Steve Hood(NZ).

All are currently fundraising in their local communities the $10,000 each cyclist commits to Hands Across the Water in order to join the ride.

“Every cent of the money donated or that we raise is 100 per cent used to fund the continuing running costs of the orphanages and other projects supported by ‘Hands’, such as medical centres, development programs and education scholarships, ” explained Mr Moore, Principal of LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills in Brisbane..

“None of it funds us personally or the charity’s administrative costs.”

Mr Moore, who admits to not having ridden a bike since his school days long in the past, hopes a Melbourne Cup Day Luncheon fundraiser will kick off his community’s support.
‘Hands’ was founded in 2004 and supports Thai children who lost their families in the Boxing Day Tsunami.

‘Hands’ founder and Chairman Peter Baines spoke at LJ Hooker’s international conference in Thailand in August 2010.

“What Peter Baines has accomplished and continues to do through Hands Across the Water resonates with me personally and with the LJ Hooker Family,” said Mr Moore.

Support the LJ Hooker riders in their local community fundraisers or visit the Hands Across the Water website where you can sponsor them and other cyclists on their amazing journey to better the lives of orphaned children.
