Youth is supposed to be bright and active. In fact, our future is premised on their physical and intellectual development. But the problem is that too many youth are so disadvantaged that they are probably the most inactive and least stimulated generation in recent memory.
FreeWider, a team which is formed by two tremendously enthusiastic young men Isaac Cheng and Jan Choi, who are eager to conquer new ground, and who believe that the impossible can be turned into the possible.see a future where today’s disadvantaged youth play on a level playing field, at least when they are dancing, kicking, and running. To help do this, in 2013, the FreeWiders set out 4 months ago on their modern-day Orient Express. Except that this Orient Express doesn’t take in the glory of the Asian scenery while wining and dining in carriages fit for royalty — this one runs on 2-wheeled bicycles that are powered by the tireless legs of Isaac and Jan. And this one starts at Hong Kong, through 100 cities, ending in New Delhi, India after about 120 days and 8,000 km.
FreeWider listed their project Bike to Dream on fund raising platform FringeBacker and raised HK$55,000 for InspiringHK Foundation. These funds will enable more than 40 teenagers from low income households in Sham Shui Po to receive dancing or running courses free of charge for a year (the running sessions will be hosted by a Hong Kong running record holder)
