Join us for the 4th Annual Lake2Lake Ride for Rwanda September 21–22, 2013
Mathias “heartily” recommends the Lake2Lake—we had a chance to sit down with him in Rwanda to talk about the ride and Wellspring’s work to empower a new generation:
We are really excited for the 4th edition of the Lake2Lake Ride for Rwanda, being held September 21-22, 2013. Last year saw the number of riders increase once again and over $60,000 raised to empower the next generation through education that transforms lives. Read about last year.
We received survey responses from 35 of our 2012 riders. Of those respondents, 54% of respondents heard about the Lake2Lake by word of mouth, 88% are likely to ride again and 97% would recommend it to a friend!
As we’ve planned the 2013 Lake2Lake we’ve taken many of our riders’ suggestions, comments and feedback into consideration. Check out highlights from the survey here.
We have a couple of new things for 2013 that we’re sure you’ll be pumped for:
We are introducing a Team element to the Ride for Rwanda. Teams will be made up of 4 riders (a maximum of 2 past L2L riders/team) and will have the option of riding the whole ride together or splitting the ride into parts, like a relay. There will prizes for the team that raises the most funds, regardless of how you choose to compete the ride. Find out more about Teams here.
New jerseys for fundraising riders
If your ridden and fundraised the Lake2Lake in the past you already have a Team Wellspring jersey (probably more than one!) So for this year we’ve decided to mix it up a bit. If 2013 is your first year fundraising you’ll get a Team Wellspring jersey; if 2013 is your second year fundraising you’ll get a Ride for Rwanda jersey; and If 2013 is your third or fourth year fundraising you’ll get a Team Rwanda jersey—just like the ones we draw for on the Saturday evening at Eagle Bay Camp. W00t!
This year we are hoping once again to expand our rider base and raise more awareness for the need of quality education in Rwandan Schools. If you rode last year, encourage your friends to join you this September.
