Ride for kids - may 19th, 2018 - Join us!


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

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 and Dino 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. 

 

Do you like this idea and would you like to contribute or participate?

 

Contact us on info@wecare4.ch.  We will open a dedicated site for you on our homepage where you can raise money in support of the charitable cause.

  

You don't want to ride from Zurich to Berlin? No problem! 

 

 Just tell us what tour you are planning and we will show it here. Regardless of whether your experience in cycling is limited to a few rounds around your neighborhood, or you have been training for another tour elsewhere in the world: Everything is possible. Just let us know! 


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, 3 years financed are incredible

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.
