Not just spinning your wheels

Feb 07, 2012

What started as a health event in Taiwan, soon spilled over into a significant initiative for children.

Late last year, Amway held three Nutrilite Bike Day events in Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung to promote exercise and nutrition.

People in Taiwan don’t often get the chance to ride their bikes freely on major highways in the fresh air with friends and family. So the event attracted large audiences, with more than 32,000 participating, including many Amway distributors and employees.

Every good ride needs a good finish. In Taipei, the ride ended at the Presidential Office Square. There, Amway set up a “charity carnival” that raised money for children with mental and physical disabilities.

At the end of the races, the event raised NT$7.1 million (US$231,648) for the Angel Heart Family Social Welfare Foundation.

In this bike race, everyone won.
