BENEFITING: Amnesty International USA
EVENT DATE: Jul 21, 2015
I’m cycling across Iowa in this year’s 500-mile RAGBRAI ride (July 19 – 25) and am dedicating each day in support of an important charitable organization. I’ll use the ride as an opportunity to raise funds and help create awareness for these organizations and the causes they support.
Amnesty International is among the organizations I’ll be supporting during RAGBRAI. Day 3 (July 21st, Fort Dodge to Eldora) will be in support of the Amnesty International and their important work. Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights. They work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. Currently the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization, Amnesty International investigates and exposes abuses, educates and mobilizes the public, and helps transform societies to create a safer, more just world. The organization received the Nobel Peace Prize for their life-saving work.
