Cycle for Sustainability

Picture
On August 18, 2013 World Accord invites you to ride with us for the second annual Cycle for Sustainability. The ride is designed to raise awareness about World Accord’s work and sustainability both locally and globally.

This year’s event will take cyclists on 10, 25 and 50 km routes that feature stops at local businesses and organizations with a focus on sustainability. It will begin at 10 a.m. on August 18, 2013 at the Brewmeister Green in Waterloo at the corner of King and William.

At the end of the ride participants will be invited to a street party in World Accord’s Green Zone at Open Streets between the railroad tracks and Erb St. on King St. S. The Green Zone will feature local businesses and organizations with a focus on sustainability, entertainment, prizes and more!

All cyclists will be asked pay an initial registration fee of $25. Cyclists who raise over $150 will have their registration fee reimbursed. All funds raised through the Cycle for Sustainability will directly support World Accord’s partner organizations in Central America and South Asia.
To register please visit: cycle4sustainability.  Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing a pledge form and fundraising tips.

All cyclists will have the opportunity to enter a draw for one of several prizes including an opportunity to participate in one of World Accord’s Construction Expeditions valued at $3000.00.
