FLO Cycling - World Bike Relief
Jordan Rapp (http://bit.ly/dhBj67) is hosting "Rappstar's Second Annual Ironman Arizona World Bicycle Relief Charity Challenge." Jordan has teamed up with World Bicycle Relief to help bring bikes to a rural community in Zambia, Africa. The children in Zambia face extremely long treks to school. Some children walk up to four hours both ways.
The goal this year is to raise $25,000 which will bring 186 bikes to these children. Chris and I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and are happy to say we've donated a bike. If you have the means to be involved, it's a great cause. The info is below.
You can donate ANY amount, but ONLY donations of $134 (the cost of one bicycle) will get you a raffle "ticket." For every multiple of $134 that you donate, you get another entry into the raffle. $268 buys you two tickets, $402 buys you three, $536 buys you four, etc.
To enter the raffle, you can donate online at:
If you want to snail-mail, you can do that to:
