Every year Apex Wireless’ fundraising efforts will be supporting charities worldwide. In February 2013, on their own expense, a Mountain Bike team made up of employees of Apex Wireless will be travelling to Cambodia to cycle through the communities and visit families that have and will receive the donations from this fundraiser.
The goal is to raise $50000 before departure on February 20, 2013. All donations will go directly to Hope International Development Agency to fund the construction of a school for 120 students as well as 3-4 wells to allow families and communities access to water for drinking and agricultural uses in the Province of Pursat, Cambodia
Team Goal: $50000

Any amount is accepted as all proceeds from the donations will be forwarded to the charity.
