Today we tell you an unbelievable story:
4 people from 50 to 59 years old and from 3 different countries decided to cross the United States by bike, from the West coast to the East one, through 3000 miles, 12 states and 175 feet of difference in high, in only one week!
But… there is more!
This challenge is not only athletic. They try to raise money to fight against polio, a terrible disease that affects million of children worldwide.
Thousands kilometres of training and thousands kilometres to ride before the finish line… day and night, sun and rain… without stops but always together with their amazing staff… and then, after 6 days, 18 hours and 4 minutes… on Saturday 23rd June they won the 1st place!!!
And there is even more: before and during the race, Team Rotary RAAMs polio has raised more than USD 1 million!!!
As you can image, it’s not a fairy tale, everything is true!
Derwid is very proud of these two big results and happy to take part to this project by sponsoring these amazing people!
Congratulations dear friends!
