Interbike 2015 showcased the support for World Bicycle Relief across the show floor and beyond. Here’s a look at some of our favorite moments from the 2015 show. Thank you to the incredible support from the bike industry for believing in The Power of Bicycles.
We want to take the opportunity to thank the SRAM Community for their ongoing support for WBR. SRAM continues to share our message through a wide variety of avenues. From Happy Hours at their booth to including World Bicycle Relief in their messaging and marketing, the employees at SRAM are great advocates for our work. Thank you SRAM for believing in the Power of Bicycles.
We were very excited to announce the launch of our stem cap program which we’ll be rolling out in mid-October. This will be a great way to get dealers involved and give supporters a way to proudly show their support for World Bicycle Relief! Stay tuned for more details.
On Thursday evening, World Bicycle Relief was the beneficiary of the Interbike Awards Gala. Ten dollars from every ticket sold went to support our work and Mark Castator created the beautiful centerpieces out of bike parts that were auctioned off as well. The SRAM pART project continues to show the beautiful integration of art and bicycling. Finally, the Nutcase Unframed murals, created throughout the week by three artists, were auctioned off. It was a special evening that had a deep impact on the work we do with over $16,000 raised through these various activities. Champion System stepped up to add to this tally with their limited edition Cutters jersey to benefit World Bicycle Relief as well.
Finally, we simply couldn’t do what we do without the amazing support from all of our partners in the industry. We love sitting down with these individuals that take the time to find unique and creative ways to give back. It is hard to share enough thank-yous. As we move towards Giving Tuesday, we are looking forward to having many of our partners included on this day, to be a part of one of the most impactful days of the year.
As we wrap up from Interbike 2015, it is with a gracious and heartfelt Thank You to all of our wonderful supporters. We look forward to sharing more great stories and successes next year.
