Investment banker turned philanthropic adventure seeker Morgan Parker has successfully completed his epic journey of 25,000 kilometres through 10 countries, arriving in Brisbane, Ausstralia, on Monday 4 July 2011.
Dubbed Wheel2Wheel, the 125 day charitable motorcycle expedition came to a roaring halt as Morgan was greeted with enthusiastic cheers when he arrived in his hometown on his trusty BMW F800GS motorbike.
Morgan’s journey, which began in Hong Kong, took him through China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Timor-Leste and finally his native Australia. Film crews filmed the event and will produce a television series based on his adventure.
“Wheel2Wheel’s inaugural expedition is now complete, but the journey to raise awareness of important humanitarian issues throughout the region will continue,” Morgan says.
“I’m overwhelmed at the level of engagement Wheel2Wheel has created throughout Asia-Pacific, and I feel humbled by the tens of thousands of supporters who encouraged me to push on. We will continue to work on behalf of our selected charitable organisations, look forward to the upcoming television series and the next Wheel2Wheel expedition.”
