Marinduque Charity Ride

As promised, I went back to Marinduque. This time with my husband and the MCRC and Burlington Riders you can't get any better than that. I'm in good hands. This time a charity ride to Hinapulan elementary school and my going back to  visit Abel in Sibuyao.

We reach Lucena port around 2am. We drove our jeep 🚙 wrangler and pull in to a RoRo (roll on/roll off ferry. as well as all the motorcycles. We tried to get some sleep at the ferry but to little avail. 

Arriving at port of Balanacan, Marinduque past 6 am. Beautiful Marinduque in the morning! I can smell the fresh air and the cool breeze as we approach the port, the ever green natures surrounding and the nice people. I felt like home. Jeff was amazed of how green the place are and just like me He fell in love with the beauty of Marinduque. We are suddenly awake and excited!

More MCRC Riders at the port are waiting for us to join on this charity ride.
We just make a quick stop for a coffee then hit the road to Hinapulan.

We are in convoy, with four riders in front of us watching ahead and facilitating the traffic, with the wrangler in the middle and the rest of the riders followed behind us. The road to Hinapulan is very challenging a lot of sharp curves and narrow road but Jeff has an excellent driving skills so that was easy.
Took us 2 hours to get to our mission site. Here's the fun part, 3 rivers to crossed, our wrangler made it to the two rivers the 3rd one is deep for the wrangler to pass.
We carry our stuff I mean heavy boxes and crossed the 3rd river. The riders are just Awesome with their hard work,  right after the 3rd river there is this huge gigantic rubber tire that says "Welcome to Hinapulan Elementary School" I can already see hundred of kids and parents waiting for us with smiling faces like they are welcoming us.
The school principal welcome us and graciously prepared lunch for us. Things we gave: Boots pants- we gave boot pants to those family who have kids that crossed the 3 rivers everyday to go to school- this is to protect them from the Lead contaminated water due to Mccopper mining. Those kids their legs get rashes. itched and sometimes wounds from the contaminated river.
