Australia – Adam Gilchrist scores 40 bikes for kids with disabilities

May 27, 2009

This is a follow up to the One by One partnership in Australia and the blog post on April 23rd. Amway launched an exciting Freedom Wheels initiative with Adam Gilchrist where for every six he hit at the IPL cricket tournament in India, Amway Australia committed to put another child with disabilities onto a technically modified bike. Adam accepted the target to hit 25 sixes. Last year he hit 19.

In the semi-final, Gilchrist blasted five sixes bringing his total to 29 sixes!! He scored 85 – with his 50 coming off just 17 balls (the fastest 50 in IPL history!).

To further the good will, Amway Australia donated an additional 15 bikes for this great cause. So the 40 bikes will soon be on the way to children with disabilities – We can’t think of a better 50th Anniversary present.

Well done Gilly!

      An excellent gesture…further proof that Amway is the greatest Business Opportunity anywhere in the world.
