Despite the hills, the heat and the four flat tires (one of them mine when I was about to make Elco tired going up hill…), and one small accident (also me when I was playing to be a cameraman interviewing Team Captain Wil), Team Dai reached Phonsavanh, capital of Xieng Khuang Province, which is famous for its Plain of Jars. With our effort and the enormous generosity from over 130 private donors from all over the world, and about $5,000 raised by the raffle held in Vientiane, this year Team Dai has raised US$17,375. Team Dai is so grateful for the generosity and support of all of them, but I want to thank specially to the 9 friends from Holland who supported this challenge. Thank you so much!!

The total amount will be split evenly and distributed to the three organisations described previously. This is a great result and the three organizations were extremely grateful at a small presentation ceremony at the COPE center on Friday March 12th. We’ve asked for a brief report with pictures of how the money is used, and will send this to all donors too.
Team Dai su su,
