2017 Lake2Lake Ride for Rwanda

Why We Ride

81 riders • 220 kilometers  • $101,000 (and counting) raised

This past weekend eighty-one cyclists came together to ride for quality education in Rwanda. They pedalled nearly 18,000 kilometers in total, which is more than the distance from Vancouver to Kigali! The route ran through British Columbia’s beautiful North Okanagan. We started by Kalamalka Lake, rode to Shuswap Lake for an overnight stay, and did it all again the next day!

Many of our riders not only biked 220 km, they also fundraised to support Wellspring’s work in Rwanda—donations can made until October 15 . While the ride was tough, every push of the pedal was for a good cause. It’s easy for us to cite stats, but the truth is that behind each number is an individual. A leader who is learning how to push their school towards success. A teacher who is receiving the training to equip the students in their classroom. A child who finally has access to an education that matches their God-given potential and gives them the future opportunities they deserve.

And that’s why we ride.
