700 bikes to Zambia!
Posted on June 10, 2011
This is such exciting news to us. YAH!
It makes all the hard work and hours we spent in saddle so worth while & it is the most rewarding feeling to know that you were able to make a small difference in the lives of 700 children by giving them the freedom, pride & joy of owning their own bicycle to improve the quality of their lives.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that supported Tracy & I on our Epic mission!
See press release from Rebecca below:
The numbers are in and we are happy to announce that the Cape Epic Challenge rasied $94,177 for World Bicycle Relief’s Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program. With each WBR bike costing $134 to distribute, this tally will provide more than 700 bicycles to students in Zambia.
