Helping Underprivileged Citizen For Quality Haemodialysis Treatment
Starting from 9 December to 15 December 2017, Rotary Cycling Club (ROCC) will embark on a 6 day bicycle ride from Kuala Lumpur to Hatyai and back covering a total of 1200 kilometres by bicycle. In conjunction with our epic ride, we would like to also raise funds for Mazda Medicare Fund (MMF) and we seek your kindness to help us in this mission. All donations are Tax Exempted. This is the 2nd time ROCC is cycling for charity. Each of our riders are hoping to raise RM10 for every kilometre and we are asking for friends and family to support our cause. We are proud that Bermaz is sponsoring us for this event and grateful to partner with PeopleGiving charity portal.
What is hemodialysis? Hemodialysis commonly called kidney dialysis is a process of purifying the blood of a person whose kidneys are not working normally. Each patient will require about RM3000/- per month for treatment. All monies raised will go directly to the patients.
Allow us to briefly introduce ourselves.
Dicky Lim- Dic is 44 years old and as some of you may know is a patient of MCD (minimal change disease) a mild form of kidney disease for the past 10 years. He is an avid sportsperson, a 2 time 70.3 Half Ironman Finisher and a recent full Ironman Finisher at Ironman Langkawi.
Jack Liew- 45 year old Jack is our strongest rider as yet coming back from a bicycle injury. This has not deterred him from cycling and he still sprints like a mean machine. We definitely need his mental strength to carry the team through this event.
Ken Ong- Lawyer Ken Ong runs from the courtroom to the track with his cycling and running activities. Ken has completed a number of duathlons and a recent Audax BRM 600 Finisher.
Darren Lee- Darren is a ultra marathoner running 200km without batting a eyelid. He is a also a recent full Ironman Finisher, multiple ultra marathons and full marathons are just a few of his achievements.
Wong Wai Keong- Wong is passionate cyclist and foodie at heart. His cycling mileage is second to none clocking some 10,000km by bicycle todate.
Eddie Ooi- Eddie is our main man in organizing weekly training rides for the team. He is a strong cyclist and despite having a minor surgery recently, keen to join us on this epic ride. Eddie is without a doubt a strong addition to the team.
Daphne- One of 2 female cyclists in our group, Daphne is one lady with determination. A multiple time Standard Chartered marathon finisher, do not be deceived by this fairlady as she is no stranger to challenges. Daphne will certainly be pulling this peloton from Malaysia to Hatyai.
Soon Yong- Run with SY and you will know the meaning of being smoked. Trained in Japan and sponsored by Toyota in his running pursuits, SY can run faster than a Jamaican. SY is also a recent full Ironman Finisher.
Cindy Teh- Cindy our campaign manager will also join us on the road this time around. Cindy has completed 70.3 half Ironman distance twice and a recent full Ironman Finisher.
James Hoo- Finally we have James from Malacca who is also an equally formidable cyclist who recently completed a 600km Audax Cycling Event.
Carlos, Geoffrey & Tracy- Not forgetting our all important support crew who will be providing us with the necessary nutrition and hydration for us all the way. We will definitely be needing the moral and physical support of these 3 members as the cornerstone of our event.
