The 2017 Cares 4 Kids Cycle Challenge

By Sam Tesch -

Cares 4 Kids The Openwork Foundation has invited members of Openwork (Partners Advisers, all staff and friends) to sign up to secure a place on their most popular fundraising event. Now in its 17th year the 2017 Cares 4 Kids Cycle Challenge will see the Openwork Foundation riders return to Kerala in Southern India.They were last in Kerala in 2008 and will be returning 27 October – 3 November.

Meaning ‘land of coconuts’, it’s hardly surprising Kerala is almost entirely shaded by a palm canopy. Home to elephants, tea plantations, a world-class cuisine and many adventure travel opportunities, India’s tropical south is the perfect setting for a life-changing adventure.

The challenge:

  • Cycle more than 300kms through spectacular scenery and the backwaters of southern India
  • Explore historic Cochin, a former Portuguese settlement
  • Experience the diverse birdlife of the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary
  • Pedal the backroads through tea and spice plantations
  • Catch a glimpse of Kerala's incredible wildlife, including tigers and elephants
