Forty amateur cyclists left Tokyo on May 25, 2017 for Knights in White Lycra’s annual fundraising ride. The goal was to pedal 550km and raise ¥7 million for Mirai no Mori, an NPO, to send 25 children in care to winter camps and help them overcome fear, gain self-confidence, and give them life skills to better prepare for adulthood. See how they did.
On May 26, 2016, Knights in White Lycra (KIWL), a Tokyo-based charity cycling team of male and female expatriates and Japanese, embarked on a gruelling 520km cycle ride from Tokyo to Ichinoseki, Iwate Prefecture, to raise funds for Mirai no Mori, a non-profit organization providing life-changing outdoor programs to needy children. KIWL founder Rob Williams, other cyclists, and Mirai no Mori’s Kozue Oka and Jeff Jenson talk to BIJ.TV about the journey, why they did it, and how the ¥9.2 million they raised will make a difference in the lives of abused, neglected, and orphaned children.
