SOUTHPORT couple Marc and Maria Mrsic are off on an adventure of a lifetime, as they ride their motorbikes through Vietnam’s wild countryside for two weeks, raising money for needy Vietnamese school kids.
Mr Mrsic, Managing Director of Southport business Total Traffic Solutions, said the company will donate $1 for every kilometre ridden to the charity AFAP Action on Poverty as part of their K’s for Kids program.
“We will be riding from Ho Chi Minh City and travelling north to Hanoi, and hope to cover about 1,000km,” Mr Mrsic said.

“That means we’ll be raising at least $1,000 by ourselves but we’re hoping the Southport community will also get behind us and help raise at least another grand.”
Funds raised will go to AFAP’s project to help school children in Northwest Vietnam, where families are surviving on less than $1 a day.
The project will improve school boarding facilities to ensure children have access to clean water supplies, food, blankets and most importantly, an education.
Marc and Maria will be keeping everyone informed of their preparations and progress through regular updates via the TTS Group Facebook page.
The ride will start on Thursday, August 21. You can support Marc and Maria by donating at: https://afap.myetap.org/AFAP/
