On Sunday, January 31st at 9:00am, Helen's Cycles and current US National Road Race Champion George Hincapie will join forces to raise funds for the Haitian Earthquake Relief effort.
A minimum donation of $25 (although you can donate more!) is required to participate in the ride. Donations of $50 or more will allow you an extended ride with Hincapie after the initial ride concludes.
Please arrive at Helen's Cycles in Santa Monica by 9:00am with your receipt of purchase in order to receive your wristband that will allow entry into the ride. Roll out will begin at 9:30 for a relatively easy one hour ride through Santa Monica with Hincapie.
Helen's Cycles will donate an additional $10 for every donation made. Donations to go directly to Partners in Health, a national doctor's organization currently in Haiti. "Partners In Health works to bring modern medical care to poor communities in nine countries around the world. The work of Partners in Health has three goals: to care for our patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world."
