BENEFITING: Livestrong Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 23, 2011
HOURS PLEDGED: 40
Our first mission is to help those who are hindered by illness or their limited means to be able to realize their dreams. We realize that these individuals have obstacles blocking their potential to see their dreams become reality, so we hope to help remove the barriers holding them back. We are donating directly to LIVESTRONG in the hopes that our proceeds will help in the search for a cure. All the Crowdrise donations will be benefitting LIVESTRONG. In addition, we will be working directly with a local charity to raise funds for impoverished families in the D.C. area, and volunteer for this charity until our departure; after that we plan to continue this as we bike across Europe during the summer of 2011.
Future endeavors for our organization will revolve around the concept of inspiring people to embrace their goals, even if that means giving up the comfort to which they have become accustomed.
