Cycle for girls

In October 2016, Plan Adventurers took on a life-changing experience cycling through Cambodia while raising funds to support girls to lead, learn, decide and thrive.

17 participants cycled 400 km across Cambodia in 10 days, raising over $100,000 to help empower girls to reach their full potential.

The Cycle for Girls team also took part in a very special visit to one of Plan International's projects on International Day of the Girl – singing hokey pokey to children at an early learning centre, meeting with single mothers who are supporting their children with basket weaving, and talking to young women who are learning trades.

They rode in sun, wind and rain, sharing laughter and forging countless friendships along the way. 

“I’ll never forget the cheeky, smiling children who ran to high five us as we peddled past. Sharing all this with such an amazing team made the experience one that will stay with me forever.” –
Mandy Kopelke.

Plan Adventures are an exciting way for supporters to engage with our work overseas. Since 2011, our participants have raised an incredible $625,000 towards our gender equality programs and have returned even more passionate about the impact their support is making in the world.
