ANZCham Charity Bike Ride 2021


Caption: Day 1 - the riders ready to set off on their 5 day adventure.


Over 10-14 April ANZCham Taipei led a team of 35 Executives on a journey cycling across Eastern Taiwan donating money to Charities along the way on the annual ANZCham Charity Bike Ride.

This is the fourth Charity Bike Ride, hosted by ANZCham Taipei, which takes our members and friends to rural areas to experience the local culture and natural beauty of Taiwan and give back to the place where we live and love.

This year our journey started in Taipei and we traveled through Luodong 羅東, Xincheng 新城 (including Taroko Gorge), Fenglin 楓林, Chishang 池上, and ended the Taitung 臺東 - cycling 480km+ over 5 days.


Along the way, we visited communities and branches of the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families (TFCF) in Chongde (崇德) and Yuli (玉里家扶中心) and thanks to our sponsors donated NT$195,000 to support underprivileged youth and families in the region.


During the Charity event held at the Chongede Elementary school participants held a 1 minute silence to pay their respects for the victims of the Hualian Train tragedy. While there the group also learnt more about the local indigenous culture and participated in activites with some of the kids including weaving, playing instruments, and learning the local language.


We would like to give a special thanks to Stephanie Lee, Acting Director of the New Zealand Commerce and Industry Office and Tina Wilson, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise Office for joining us at the Chongde Elementary School Charity event. Tina who is Maori (Indigenous New Zealander) was able to connect Maori and Taiwanese Indigenous culture through language and culture.


Thank you to our sponsors whom without this event would not be possible, including premium sponsor:

ANZCham and our sponsors are committed to supporting the local community that we love.

ANZCham台北市澳紐商會 Charity Bike Ride

破風雨 行善舉 千里熱捐近20萬至花蓮家扶


日期:2021/4/10~2021/4/14

地點:臺北至臺東


澳紐商會舉辦之公益單車行於本月10日自台北市立動物園出發,11日抵達花蓮,與花蓮家扶中心在達基力部落的社區據點舉辦「慈善捐贈暨文化交流活動」,並捐贈新臺幣195,000元,活動中也透過與孩童的互動,學習敲擊樂器、認識太魯閣族織布狩獵等文化,給予孩童實質上的支持和鼓勵,希望每年在澳紐商會的陪伴下,孩童的學習之路充滿勇氣且堅定。


在活動開始前,紐西蘭商工辦事處李思怡Stephanie Lee代理代表、澳洲辦事處莫博仁Brent Moore副代表與澳紐商會攜全體參與者靜默一分鐘,為日前太魯閣號脫軌事件的罹難者、傷者以及家屬祝禱,而同為南島語族的紐西蘭貿易發展中心魏緹娜Tina Wilson處長,則是以毛利語和禱歌進行祈福,身為太魯閣族的臺灣大學社工系Ciwang Teyra教授也以太魯閣族語表達致謝。


臺北騎至花蓮,35位車手沐浴在大自然的鬼斧神工,雖然行程的前兩日霧雨濛濛,但並未澆熄車手的熱血,倒像是上天與我們一起,為日前太魯閣號脫軌事故的受難者表達最高度的哀悼,澳紐商會也積極協助衛服部募款活動資訊廣發和商會會員之募款統計。


紐西蘭商工辦事處李思怡代理代表表示,紐西蘭原住民族和臺灣原住民族同為南島語系,相隔千里但文化及歷史都有相似之處,歷史淵源深厚,未來也打算引薦更多資源進臺灣,一同關懷偏鄉地區的孩童。澳洲辦事處莫博仁副代表在致詞中也不斷稱讚臺灣的友善及豐富的文化,很願意介紹臺灣這塊寶地給外國企業認識,希望雙方未來能產生更多連結。澳紐商會蘇廷翰Peter Sutton理事也提到,在東岸騎乘單車是個令人著迷的體驗,也因重視偏鄉服務的價值,今年決定三度拜訪花東並與花蓮家扶中心配合,深度了解臺灣在地文化。


花蓮家扶扶幼委員會蕭雄彰主委也表示感謝紐西蘭工商辦事處、澳洲辦事處、澳紐商會看見後山孩子的需要,提供孩子文化交流的場域,也以實際行動支持孩子,不遠千里送愛心。


澳紐商會舉辦之公益單車行今年邁入第四年,透過活動的引薦,澳紐商會連結澳洲、紐西蘭相關企業廠商,愛心齊發,每年提供各縣市家扶基金會愛心捐助款項,在此特別感謝活動贊助麥格理集團(Macquarie)、澳盛銀行(ANZBank)、台灣艾比偲管理顧問有限公司(APIS4)、恆天然合作社集團(Fonterra)以及紐西蘭奇異果(Zespri)的祝福及善款才能讓此次活動圓滿達成。
