Cycling & Walking for a Good Cause
CYCLE & WALK FOR CHARITY
Penang-born Pastor Cheah Chee Moon has been “Cycling for Charity” for the longest time… and on 7 July 2018 he challenged himself by pulling a rickshaw starting from Johor all the way to Chiang Rai, covering a total distance of about 3000 km (on foot with Currexsole Natural Performance Insoles). He hoped to finish this charity walk within 75 days. He is doing it to raise funds for the orphanage homes in Malaysia & Thailand.
Pastor Cheah previously rode a penny-farthing, a late 19th century bicycle with a large front wheel and a small rear wheel, in 2016 to raise funds for Agape Children Home in Chiang Rai, which he runs.
“I love new, exciting challenges and since I have never walked in all my previous charity drives, this will be a whole new experience for me.
“I get to do it for a good cause – that is the best motivation I need to keep going,” he said.
“I started training by running about 120km every week for the past few months. The most important thing in this journey is mental strength,” he said.
Pastor Cheah said he opted to use a hand-pulled rickshaw for the journey to encourage members of the public to exercise in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
