Ride for World Health
Ever wanted to ride a bike across the country?Ever wanted to support health initiatives at home and abroad?Did you know that there is a great way to do both?Ride for World Health is looking for riders for its 2012 team!
Join the Ride for World Health team as they embark on a 3,700-mile bike ride across the United States that will take place during April and May of 2012. This will be the 7th annual medical student initiated event aimed at raising knowledge and awareness of global and domestic health issues through education, advocacy and fundraising.
In addition to biking, riders give a Coast-to-Coast lecture series on topics relating to global health, relevant domestic health, general safety, and health maintenance. We fundraise year round to support three chosen non-profit organizations that are in line with our overall mission, Louie’s Kids, Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL), and MANA. In previous years our fundraising campaigns have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various global health initiatives. //
The Ride for World Health 2012 leadership is looking for individuals to join us who are motivated and interested in creating a dialogue for discussing global and domestic health needs. No extensive biking experience necessary! We can use both national team riders who will join us for the whole distance and portions team riders who can join us for part of the trip. For those who are not interested in riding but still want to help, we can use volunteers to help organize events and donations to help fundraising efforts.
Ride for World Health is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
