This round-island charity cycling event, led by Boey Lai Wan, was held on September 22, 2002. The beneficiaries of this event were the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA), Ling Kwang Youth Centre (LKYC) and Raleigh International venturers.
The objectives of Project C.A.R.E. were:

The target was to challenge bikers to complete the 130km route within 12 hours. A total of
364 bikers (259 full-island; 105 half island) from the general public took part in the event and 295 of them completed the route. In addition, there were 22 representations from LKYC and 12 representatives from HWA.
