Troy Hagen

I am raising money to support the children of Hands Across the Water because I believe that all children deserve to build a future full of possibilities, opportunities and dreams - a life of choice, not chance.

Hands Across the Water [Hands] started as a charity in response to the Boxing Day Tsunami. Now we support 350+ children living in 7 homes and projects across Thailand. 

The kids who come to live in a Hands home are there because they have no choice. This is often the result of one of three heartbreaking situations:

  • They have no known family to care for them
  • They have a family member who is known to them, but is unable to care for them
  • They are living in an unsafe environment and have been placed in our care by the police or government

Hands not only provides the life-saving necessities for the kids in our homes, they also support many families in an outreach program to help keep kids out of our homes.

Just as important as filling their bellies with healthy food and providing a safe bed to sleep in, with the support of amazing donors like you, the vision of Hands is to help these kids see the opportunities that lie before them, to see a life of choice.

My hope is that you will make the choice to join me in this experience and help me reach my personal fundraising goal. Please make a donation today to support these children and provide them with a better future. 

Together we can truly make a difference - Donate now!

Help this old man get fit while helping a really worthy charity

Monday 3rd Apr

Hands Across the Water, founded in 2005, has been dedicated to supporting vulnerable Thai children. With the creation of Hands Group in 2011, they've been able to maintain their impact despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

By donating to my 500km bike ride, you'll be part of a powerful movement that transforms the lives of these children. I'm committed to raising $5,000 for this incredible cause, which rescues children from dangerous situations and provides them with the opportunities they deserve. Your generosity will break the cycle of poverty, offering these children a brighter future. Please donate to help me reach my goal, and together, let's make a lasting impact in their lives.

Thank you to my Sponsors
