In 2013, World Bicycle Relief will reach new heights with the launch of it’s Team World Bicycle Relief Ambassador Program.
With an outstanding new line up of sponsors to support their efforts, Team World Bicycle Relief will select three passionate athletes to spend a full year sharing the Power of Bicycles! SRAM, Zipp, Specialized, Skratch Labs, Sock Guy, Pactimo, Training Peaks, Vision Quest Coaching, Quarq, blueseventy and Headsweats have signed on to help these ambassadors create change within their communities and raise funds for bicycles in Africa.
On March 1, three very special athletes will be welcomed to the new Team World Ambassador Program. Ambassadors, will be equipped with a bicycle, apparrel and a ton of gear from our sponsors to help in the year-long adventure.
Athletes from all branches of the cycling community – triathlon, cyclocross, long-distance or anything in between – are encouraged to apply. The goal is to find individuals who wish to use their love of sport to make real change in the world. Over the course of the year, each Team World Bicycle Releif Ambassador is challenged to raise $15,900 – enough to provide 100 bicycles to students and healthcare workers in rural Africa as well as train 10 field mechanics to keep bikes up and running.
Think you have what it takes to be a Team World Bicycle Relief Ambassador? We’d love to hear from you.
All applications must be submitted by end of day February 15, 2013.
