Ride for World Health 2007

Are you searching for an opportunity to get involved with international health?  Are you interested in biking cross-country?  Now is the time to act…In April 2006, the first Ride for World Health departed from San Francisco, CA on a 3,700 mile journey ending in Washington, D.C. in May 2006.  Along the way, the riders hosted over 40 lectures at major medical centers and community health clinics.

With vigorous fundraising efforts, Ride for World Health grossed over $130,000 for its 2006 beneficiary, Partners in Health.  This year, the money raised will benefit The Pendulum Project and Global Health Access Program.  The Pendulum Project provides funding to grass-roots community groups in sub-Saharan Africa to support children with AIDS.  Global Health Access Program is run solely by professionals who volunteer their time to provide health services and basic resources.

1. We are still searching for motivated individuals who are interested in participating in the 2007 Ride as a riders.  Please apply today at www.rideforworldhealth.org/apply.

2.  Plan to attend a lecture, or better yet, attend a lecture and help us promote The Ride for World Health Coast-to-Coast lecture series as we come through your area.
