UK man cycles across America for moon bears

06 May 2014

Charity Cycle

Animal loving Brit Abraham Cohen is going the extra mile for moon bears by cycling the length of the American continent via the USA’s historical Route 66 to raise awareness for Animals Asia.

Abraham Cohen will complete a gruelling 2,450 miles (or 3,940 km) from Los Angeles to Chicago all in aid of former bile farmed bears in Animals Asia’s sanctuaries in Vietnam and China.

Abraham Cohen said:

“I want to highlight their vulnerability in this modern world – they don’t have the chance to live natural, healthy and free lives.”

“It will be an incredibly long journey but when I think back to the bears, it will be worth it.”

“I’m looking forward to taking in all the sights while supporting a cause close to my heart.”

Animals Asia founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE said:

“We’re excited and extremely grateful for Abraham’s decision to support Animals Asia on this incredible journey. Our work relies on the dedication and generosity of our supporters so when someone takes on a challenge as inspirational as Abraham’s it gives the entire organisation a huge lift. We’ll be cheering him on every mile.”

The solo journey will begin from LA on 14 May and supporters are encouraged to follow Abraham Cohen’s adventures via his Facebook page, or donate by visiting
