The Power of Bicycles April World Awareness


This bike is life changing.

Many of us recall fond memories of riding bicycles, unaware of the importance this form of transportation has for children and adults in other parts of the world. Did you know millions of people in Africa and elsewhere spend hours each day walking to reach clean drinking water, education, health care, and jobs? The energy, time, and safety issues involved in walking these necessary distances are difficult and deadly. Bicycles are a simple, sustainable solution to this transportation crisis.

World Bicycle Relief is working currently to provide specially-designed, locally-assembled bicycles as necessary means of transportation to students (70% girls), teachers and educational workers in rural Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Please join Team 10K and the rest of the world in spreading awareness throughout the month of April by participating in a casual or awareness day through your employer, a bake sale through your church, or any other creative community-type event, in which each participant spreads awareness and contributes what he or she can to assist World Bicycle Relief in reaching its goal of providing The Power of Bicycles.  Please participate and contribute by making a secure online donation before April 29th, 2013.  Every donation counts!  "The solution is in your hands.
