Thomas and Alex are two friends from Lethbridge, Alberta who have travelled together to places such as Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin, and even Fort Macleod. They enjoy tasteful music, guitar playing, cycling, and a good home-cooked breakfast. Thomas holds a degree in Environmental Science, and is currently working on his MSc in Geography at McGill University. Alex holds a degree in Political Science and is currently considering law school.
When Thomas and Alex decided to move to Montreal they thought, “why not cycle?”
When they decided to ride bikes, they thought “why not raise some money for a good cause?” They chose Bikes Without Borders because it is a Canadian non-profit that aims to address issues of both social and environmental justice by implementing simple, yet progressive ideas.
Their goal is to bike approximately, 2500 km to Montreal. Please donate and help them reach their goal!
Happy trails, guys!
They are hoping to raise $5,000 by 09/01/12. So far they have raised $70.
Please help them reach their goal by contributing to this very worthy cause. Even $10 can go a long way. Here are some suggested donation amounts:
- $150 buys a new bike for a Community Health Worker in Malawi
- $450 buys a new CareCar bike ambulance (wheeled stretcher that attaches to a bike) for a Community Health Organization
- $50 buys a set of replacement tires for a Community Health Worker.
