As we come to the close of 2013, the Team WBR Ambassador Program's inaugural year, we are very excited to announce that the three great voices who led the team raised over $50,000 for the Power of Bicycles! Due to the program's great success, our awesome sponsors have signed on for another year! That means it's time for YOU to consider becoming a 2014 Team World Bicycle Relief Ambassador.
This January, Team World Bicycle Relief will select another 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, Headsweats, 2XU, and Rudy Project have signed on to help these ambassadors create change within their communities and raise funds for bicycles in Africa.
On January 31, three very special athletes will be welcomed to the 2014 Team WBR 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 and to use their network to reach out for a cause. Over the course of the year, each Team World Bicycle Releif Ambassador is challenged to raise 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, a total goal of $15,900.
Think you have what it takes to be a Team World Bicycle Relief Ambassador? We'd love to hear from you.
