I am a firm believer that to whom much is given, much is expected, and thus I couldn't think of a more meaningful way to serve the American people for their generosity towards me, than to ride a bike through New York City raising funds for a deserving cause: EDUCATION.
My name's Lerato Motsamai, a South African business woman who knows the power of the bicycle to effect change -having used it before to contribute to early childhood development in underserved communities in South Africa.
I will be riding my maiden FIVE Boro Bike Tour in New York City on the 6th May 2018. I have chosen to partner with the charitable organisation, United Ways of New York City, which runs a signature program, ReadNYC. This program helps improve grade-level reading by 3rd grade for children living in some of New York City's most challenging communities whilst simultaneously helping their parents establish financial security and a stable home environment. I invite you to help me raise $1000 towards United Way of New York City's mission.
Thank you in advance!
