80 For Haiti

From AdventureCORPS:

In response to the horrific situation in Haiti, AdventureCORPS will organize a cycling event called “80 For Haiti” on February 13, 2010. It will be an 80-mile ride, on Old Hwy 80 in southeastern San Diego County, with an $80 entry fee. 100% of the entry fees will go directly to Mercy Corps, one of the most respected relief organizations worldwide. The “80 for Haiti” start / finish will be in Pine Valley, CA. The route is spectacular, on absolutely quiet roads through rolling terrain. AdventureCORPS will absorb all costs, but food, drink, and support sponsors are being sought.

Please save the date and please plan to support this event and this cause!

    That’s just a little out of my way . Maybe , I can do a personal ride in Bucks County Pa and just send in a donation . Maybe those of us who can’t make it can go on our own rides and let you know about it , Alan . Any info on the AdventureCORPS ?

    They’re a great organization. They organize a number of the best ultra-endurance events including some RAAM qualifiers.

    Randomray: Great idea! A group of cyclists in the San Francisco Bay Area are doing their own “virtual” “80 For Haiti” on Feb 13, also, and are donating to Mercy Corps directly via our fundraising page. Anything that gets people to donate, and ride their bikes, and enjoy camaraderie with other cyclists, and solidarity with the Haitians is a great idea! So get some friends together in Bucks County PA and make it happen! Let us know how it goes and we’ll include your names and such on our webpage. Thanks for your support! Here’s the fundraising page: http://www.mercycorps.org/fundraising/adventurecorps
