Clubs to raise funds via scenic ride in Indonesia

CYCLING enthusiasts can look forward to riding on the beautiful Samosir Island in North Sumatra, Indonesia, during the ‘Ride to Serve @ King of Toba (KOT)’ in December.

To be held from Dec 8 to 10, the 100km race is organised by the Lions Club of Penang Outreach (LCPO) and aimed at raising funds for education for two under-privileged schools in Pangururan, Samosir Island.

Organising chairman Irene Ooi said the selected schools were Senior High School Catholic and Senior High School St Mikeal.

The funds, she added, would also be channelled towards the Penang Ru Yi Home Association in Jalan Air Terjun.

The KOT is a joint project with the Lions Club of Medan Deli (LCMD) District 307 A2, Indonesia.

“We are targeting to raise RM100,000 in line with the 100 years of humanitarian service challenge.

“We hope to be able to lend a helping hand,” she said.

Ooi said LCPO was targeting 500 participants from all walks of life for the event.

“We wish to create awareness on the importance of healthy living while reaching out to the needy,” she added.

“We appeal to all riders to join this exciting event in Indonesia.

“As it’s a competition, exciting prizes are in store for participants,” she said.

She added that there would also be a lucky draw and dinner after the competition.

The registration fee is RM480 per person.

“Each participant will receive a jersey and finisher medal.

“Food and ground transportation to and from Kualanamu Airport in Medan to Samosir Island will be borne by the organiser,” she said.

The closing date is Nov 15.
