The Chain Reaction Project (TCRP) is a non-profit philanthopic organization comprised of four women who search for unique sports- and adventure-themed opportunities to help change lives.

TCRP’s journey began in August 2009 with the Tour de Timor, Timor-Leste's inaugural 5-day, 450-kilometre mountain bike race across nine of the nation's 13 districts. Using the race as a platform, and harnessing the power of social networking and media, TCRP successfully raised awareness for Timor and more than USD$35K for HIAM-Health, a Dili-based malnutrition rehabilitation and education centre for parents and children.

This is my personal donation to TCRP: a documentary slideshow of their journey that is now used as a marketing tool and a way to garner additional sponsorship and donations for future endeavors.

In June 2010, TCRP will once again be returning to Timor-Leste to participate in the inaugural Dili City of Peace Marathon, running 42 kilometers up mountains, through native villages and along pristine coastlines of the country once ravaged by civil war.

A documentary filmmaker and myself will be accompanying the four women of TCRP -- time accompanied by a group of 50 additional "catalyst" teammates/runners (links in the "Chain") -- in their marathon run to raise awareness for the poverty-stricken country of Timor-Leste and its people, as well as to again help raise funds for HIAM-Health in Dili.
