BENEFITING: Rising From Ashes Foundation

EVENT DATE: Aug 07, 2014

Dave McIntosh

THE STORY:

My name is Dave McIntosh and I'm riding the Trois Etapes to support Team Rwanda and the growth of cycling in Africa. More than that, I'm supporting these men who have become ambassadors of peace to millions around the world. www.rfafoundation.org.  It was an amazing experience to have been in Rwanda in 2012, working with these guys, in preparation for the Tour of Rwanda.  I went with the intention of teaching... and I believe they taught me far more.  

The Trois Etapes is one of the toughest Pro/Am cycling events on Earth. Our team of seven riders and one Team Rwanda pro will climb three mountains on the Tour de France course in the French Pyrenees. http://troisetapes.org/

I'm asking for your support. My goal is to raise at least $10,000 to support the Rising from Ashes Foundation as well as three specific programs:

Watch this video to learn more.

1) The development of the first world class cycling training facility in Rwanda the "Africa Rising Cycling Center"
2) The launching of the Adrien Niyonshuti Cycling Academy which is developing the next generation of young cyclists in Rwanda
3) The showing of Rising from Ashes across Rwanda, creating a resulting forum for Team Rwanda Riders to speak to their own countrymen about the power of sport to bring people together.

So whatever you are compelled to give - is an honor.  My hope is to raise funds but also encouragement and emotional support.

Thank you for your friendship.  

As Rafiki from Team Rwanda says - "Team is Team"!!

Dave
