A cross-country cycling journey to better education for the children of Cambodia

Hi, my name is Adam Pawlikiewicz.

This August and September I traveled across the United States by bicycle. I rode for 54 days trekking across 10 states: Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida with a total mileage of 3535.6 miles. My final and longest day I rode 170.91 miles. I camped, slept in churches, fire stations, and even a historic jail, stayed with friends, family, and strangers I met along the route. I lived pretty minimally, eating several PB&J sandwiches and bowls of oatmeal and spaghetti.

Why did I embark on such a crazy journey you might ask?

Besides hoping to inspire others to travel by bicycle, I also have a goal of fundraising $5000 for an education non-profit that I am passionate about - The Ponheary Ly Foundation. The PLF's goal is "to locate and serve the many children in Cambodia who live in the poorest rural villages and do not have access to equitable educational opportunities." I have visited the PLF and have seen the impactful work that they are doing to help build a better future for not only these children but for the developing country. Your support has the impact to secure a child's future, whether it be in the form of a donation or by sharing my campaign with others. Thank you in advance for your help - this wouldn't be possible without you!
