With Ron & James


Your generous donation will give disadvantaged children in Asia the opportunity to play, learn and grow.

This year, intrepid cyclists Ron Rutland and James Owens are cycling from Twickenham to Tokyo, to raise funds and awareness for ChildFund Pass It Back! This extreme expedition will take them through 27 countries over 231 days.

Why are they doing it? To raise money and awareness for ChildFund Pass It Back, an award winning-sport for development program which is changing children’s lives in Asia.

Implemented by ChildFund, the principal charity for Rugby World Cup 2019 and the tournament’s Official Logistics Partner DHL, ChildFund Pass It Back is giving thousands of children the opportunity to play, learn and grow through rugby.

Please support Ron, James and ChildFund Pass It Back by making a donation or even joining the duo for part of their adventure.
