This journey has now come to an end as I cycled my way into Hanoi today...In the end we gave out 470 pieces of equipment throughout the hills of Laos, leaving behind a trail of smiles after 1220 km cycled..This tour would not have been possible if it wasn't for the people who believed in the mission....so I must say thank you for your contributions, support and an experience I will never forget...It's amazing to take the time and give back, especially when you able to share your passion with others. The people we met through our travels felt our energy, but they also gave us much inspiration to move forward...The energy and enthusiasm from everyone kept us hauling and those hills conquered become an after thought....This is a small charity, but my goal is for people to feel connected and see the joy that comes along with a simple gift...It is amazing how sport and play can unite people together and bring happiness and Cyril and I gave it our heart to ensure that message was delivered....
Riding a bicycle you become aware of your surroundings and the way people truly live their lives...I gained a huge amount of respect for the people and how they cope with their environment...However, the people don't see their environment as a struggle which was evident from all the positive interactions we experienced throughout our travels..but were grateful for the gifts provided and I am glad we could provide a little help...
This charity has now successfully completed three tours and I must say thank you to our friends, family, Sino-Canada students and staff, South Meridian Elementary, Diamond head Elementary, CIJS and our sponsors Mac Bros, Guardian International, Decathlon and Cocos Pure for believing in our mission...Also, I need to give a shout out to my teammate Cyril Indome who was the perfect choice to be out here..The kids were so fortunate to feel his passion for sport and his love for working with kids. My hope is we can continue this positive momentum for future tours and add more haulers to visit schools and impoverished areas of the world...
这个慈善活动已经成功的完成了三段旅行，我得感谢朋友们、家人、中加枫华中学的师生、South Meridian小学、Diamond head小学、迪卡龙、Guardian International公司和Cocos Pure公司，感谢你们信任这一理念。我还得隆重感谢我这一路的伙伴Cyril Indome先生，他能到这里来是个最佳人选。这里的孩子们幸运地感受到他对运动的激情和为孩子工作的热爱。我希望我们将来能继续进行，去拜访更多的学校和其他贫困地区。
Our work is done for now, but I am so grateful for everyone who made this tour a success. Thank you to the wonderful people of Laos for letting us in and making us feel welcomed. Also, a big shout out to Noy and Kydeux for getting the equipment shipped and making this project a reality! I hope everyone enjoyed our mission and as I sign off here I write with a heavy heart for the people who supported us and lead us along the right path...I hope this story brought you joy and happiness which provided many with the gift of sport and privilege to play....
Until next time....going dancing tonight!

Hello Mr. Hayes, here is Johnson. Liu, I'm sorry that I reply your blog so late. How is Vietnam's air quality? China's air quality some days were still like days before holiday, but could be better than before. And I think holiday's dailies were losing the motivation to do the sports as much as during your class, but I still play some sports like basketball. I hope your charity will bring more hopes and fun to more poor towns.

Cycling through through the hills the air quality is perfect...No factories, excessive amounts of cars...just you and nature!

Your big heart will impress and change the world! It's amazing that you helped so much people while we were doing nothing or something insignificant, what a pity that I did not do anything that could help! Look forward to your next trip!
