Tara Munro-Mobbs, Valerie Kirk and Lyn Murphy are gearing up to ride 800km in eight days in Thailand's north-east, finishing at the Home Hug orphanage in Yasothon for the charity Hands Across The Water.
In support of the trio's fundraising bid, the charity's founder, Peter Baines OAM, will present a leadership seminar at the offices of Proximity, of which Munro-Mobbs is a principal lawyer, on Wednesday July 10.
As a young policeman fighting crime in Sydney's west, Baines then moved into forensic policing.
His life changed forever when he travelled to Asia in the days immediately after the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami to help the people of Thailand identify their dead.
So moved by what he witnessed and having met the countless children who had been left behind, orphaned with nowhere to go, Baines left his career in policing and set up 'Hands Across The Water' with a colleague.
The charity built the Home Hug orphanage and continues to raise funds to support and educate Thailand's 'tsunami children'.
Baines authored the book Doing Good by Doing Good and his sought-after leadership presentations challenge, move, inspire and call audiences to action.
His unique path provides insights to leadership with reflection and learning for government departments and businesses facing change, growth or challenges of their own.
Munro-Mobbs, Kirk and Murphy are aiming to raise $10,000 each, required to qualify for the ride.
Every dollar raised goes to improving the lives of the children supported by Hands Across The Water.
Tickets for the fundraising leadership breakfast are strictly limited and $120 each. Register on Ticket Tailor at:
Ticket sales will help the trio's fundraising efforts.
The leadership breakfast with is at 7.30am on July 10 at the Proximity offices, level 3, 55 Blackall Street, Barton.
