Thanks for visiting our page. We are an an 8 man cyclist and 4 crew member team raising money for UNICEF by racing across the USA as part of RAAM - http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/. RAAM is a non stop, 24 hour, relay race across 3051 miles starting in San Diego, CA, finishing in Annapolis, MD. This is a brutal bi-coastal race that traverses every US terrain type (mountains, desert, plains, urban etc.).
RAAM is a mix of endurance and speed with each cyclist completing the equivalent of around 6 time trial stages every day (and night) until we finish.
There are only 300 competing athletes, and we hope to complete our race within 7-8 days, which we will manage if we can average ~18mph all the way across the country.
Our team believes passionately in UNICEF’s work. Furthermore, UNICEF are universally recognized as one of the most effective/efficient charities with 91% of all donated money directed to UNICEF’s missions in the field.
UNICEF’s overarching goal is to realize the rights of every child globally, and to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. Specifically UNICEF:
- Creates protective environments for children to minimize exposure to violence, abuse or exploitation;
- Works to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS & other diseases (recently including Ebola) among young people;
- Protects children from suffering or dying from a preventable illnesses often via immunization;
- And among many other important outcomes, UNICEF aims to ensure children all around the world are well nourished, educated, and are not discriminated against (girls and women in particular) etc.
Our official team sponsor is Saloote (https://www.saloote.com/) who have been kind enough to support us and also make a sizable donation to support the great work of UNICEF.
Thanks for considering sponsoring us.
