2016 Great Tuk Tuk Rally – what a finish!

Category : Uncategorized

Koky 'doing his best' in the Rally!

BeeKeeper Parade’s The Great Tuk Tuk Rally January 2016 recently wrapped up and it was a BIG success! Teams raced across Cambodia in motorised tuk tuks and competed for the ultimate glory of winning – all to raise funds for Peter Mac Cancer Research and the BabyTree Projects Solar Project at the Sophia Saly School community in Kep.

Without further ado, we would like to announce that the winners of The Great Tuk Tuk Rally 2016 is: Team Rickeisha, whose name will be forever immortalised on the trophy! Huge congratulations to Alicia Guild and Rick Powley for their massive effort.

They also took out the major middle leg challenge: The Blind Solar Tuk Tuk Challenge in a current world record of 7mins 55sec, meaning they got to ring the prestigious Sophia Saly Cow Bells.

In all this fun, we also officially fundraised $5,820AUD. Not bad given the guys had only a month to raise money. These funds will be divided to support Peter Mac Cancer Research and the BabyTree Projects Solar Project at the Sophia Saly School community.

But the excitement of what’s next is already building up. Such as your chance to test your mettle in the next Great Tuk Tuk Rally! Do you think you can do it faster and hold the world record?

Details to be launched soon…
