Ride for kids - July 21, 2018 - Join us!


WHAT AN ADVENTURE - Motivate and support or even join us!

Klick hier für die Deutsche Version

We will be riding our bikes from Zurich to Berlin in order to raise money for needy children in Kenya, with the goal of funding their education. These poverty-stricken children otherwise do not have an opportunity to receive an education as they are unable to afford the school fees. In order to respond to this, we aim to raise and donate enough money to be able to fund the secondary school education for 11 kids (both girls and boys) for the next 4 years. The hope is that these educational opportunities will provide the children with the tools and skills to rise above their current circumstances and empower them to build a better or more prosperous life for their families and loved ones.  

 

We are: Marco (*1985) and Dino (*1975) from the wecare4 board.

 

We are by no means trained cyclists. Prior to this journey, our experience with bikes was limited to cycling for a few kilometers (or miles) at a time. However, after only one test ride in October 2017, we are now more aggressively preparing our training routine from January 2018 forward in order to get ready for the approximate 850 kilometers (528 miles) from Zurich to Berlin. Although our busy lives allow for only a limited time to be able to prepare for this adventure, we are excited for the challenge and we don't expect the tour to be easy! Nevertheless, safety is always first. We are looking forward to many interesting encounters and intend to post updates about our journey here. We hope that others will be inspired by this idea and will support or even join us for the event, in whatever way they wish, with the common goal of helping these children who have not been blessed with luck in their early lives.

our goal: chf 35'200.00


An ambitious goal for which we need YOUR help!

 

 

With your donation, your money will go directly to the financing of school fees for the secondary schooling of children who finished their primary education at  "our Lady of Grace School" in Kenya. These children would otherwise not have any chance to get the education necessary to be qualified for a job that would enable them to personally establish and build a life away from poverty. One year of schooling costs approximately CHF 800.00 per child.

 

 Our sponsorship goals are as follows (every donation counts!):

 

CHF 8'800 = Great, the first year is secured for the 11 Kids

CHF 17'600 = Super, 2 years are achieved

CHF 26'400 = Wow, incredible, 3 years are financed

CHF 35'200 = Amazing!!! 4 years of Secondary for all 11 Kids

 

Can we reach even more? Even better! Any donations above the listed goal thresholds will be directed towards the financing of schooling for additional children within the same circumstances.

 

100% of donations are used for the school fees for the children. Any expenses incurred in preparation for or during the bike tour are self-funded by ourselves.

A great thank you to René for supporting us with his expertise to adapt our Bikes to our Body Types. We've learned a lot from René during this 2 hours session with him. He has an incredible Know How when it comes to Cycling.

 

Correct posture of our Arms, Back as well as many technical tricks to improve our efficiency. All of this will finally help us immensely to save Energy on our long ride to Berlin. It was a real pleasure to see how engaged René talked about Cycling. Our Bikes are much easier to ride, thanks to his great help.
