Hands Across the Water have announced its popular 12-hour ‘Spinathon’ will take place on the waters edge at King Street Wharf this November 23. Here’s your chance to cycle, dance and raise money for a good cause all at the same time.
Established in 2015 to assist the tsunami victims of Thailand, Hands Across the Water have a hard workout ethos they also combine with a love of fun.
In Sydney, registrants will have the luxury of high-tech stationary spin bikes, cool harbour front views and energetic tunes mixed on-site by DJs. You can choose to cycle for one hour between 7am to 7pm. Simply pick your moment: (a) catch a glorious sunrise perfect for an Instagram selfie, (b) a lunchtime escape, or (c) finish off your workout with a cold drink at one of the fifteen restaurant and bar venues under a halo of pink and amber clouds.
In Thailand, the fundraising event in 2019 will be an 80km trek in humid conditions. The terrain will be a mix of flat beaches, rubber plantations and jungle. This will be less glitzy, more gruelling and perhaps even life changing for some.
This year’s fundraising target is over $150,000, which will help local children with their tertiary education in Thailand. With close to 500 participants from all ages peddling, let’s hope they can race past this goal!
Tickets can be purchased via EventBrite.
