As we head into our sixth year of the WBR Ambassador program, we see the incredible successes our Ambassadors have brought. Over the past five years, this program has raised over $370,000 for The Power of Bicycles!
Leading the charge in 2017 were Yann Bertaud, Denise Edwards, Lizzie Brenkus, Christopher Blevins, and Jennifer and Clara Minnich. Together, they raised more than $90,000 by activating their communities and sharing World Bicycle Relief’s mission among their supporters. Their commitment to our mission and organization is nothing short of extraordinary. They continue to use their passion for sport to share The Power of Bicycles, and you can too!
After five incredible years of the program under our belt, it’s time for YOU to get in on the action. This March, World Bicycle Relief will select five more passionate supporters to spend a full year sharing The Power of Bicycles!
On March 1st, we will welcome five very special athletes into our 2018 WBR Ambassador Program. With the help of supporting partners, we will equip our ambassadors with apparel and swag. We’ll also share plenty of WBR material to support their year-long adventure raising funds and awareness for the cause.
All individuals that are passionate about the work of World Bicycle Relief are encouraged to apply. Our goal is to find people who wish to use their voice within their community to make real change in the world. Over the course of the year, each World Bicycle Relief Ambassador is challenged to raise $10,000. These funds will help provide bicycles to students and healthcare workers in rural Africa. It will also help keep our programs sustainable by training mechanics to keep bikes on the road.
Think you have what it takes to be a World Bicycle Relief Ambassador? We’d love to hear from you. All applications are due by midnight (CST) on February 28, 2018.
