BENEFITING: TEAM AFRICA RISING

THE STORY:

Team Rwanda Cycling will spend the month of July racing in the US, primarily in California, gaining vital experience not only on the bike but also off the bike as ambassadors for their country. With your help, the team will be going to America to strengthen their technical and tactical skills on the cycling circuit. This racing and training will give them the ability to compete at the top professional level in Europe and America.

This experience will also provide income opportunities for the cyclists and provide for their families. As Ambassadors to Rwanda they will reflect an image of what Rwanda is today. All of these cyclists have been impacted to some extent by the 1994 Genocide and cycling has given them hope for a new future. This is where we need your help…. ‪
