In the hands of a girl, a bicycle provides options, independence, and access to education. With a 1-to-1 match of all money raised for World Bicycle Relief, CycloFemme’s potential for positive change in 2017 is exponential.
EMPOWER THE GIRL
To celebrate our sixth annual Mother’s Day ride, we are challenging our community to tap into the socially-driven grass roots origins of CycloFemme to create greater momentum. Historically, the bicycle has been a positive empowerment tool. In an effort to multiply our impact, riders are encouraged to donate or add a fundraising component to support World Bicycle Relief’s program in Kenya.
IGNITE THE WOMAN
This year, as riders celebrate CycloFemme worldwide—empowering ourselves and one another—we have the added benefit of sharing that same opportunity with girls in Africa. All fundraising dollars will be matched by a challenge grant, doubling the number of Buffalo Bicycles we collectively fund for women and girls in Kenya. In the hands of a girl, a bicycle provides options, independence, and access to education.
The addition of this social fundraising element to the 2017 CycloFemme rides will help us all remember how good shared momentum feels. By going the distance together, we can put more bicycles into the hands of girls fighting for their education.
