Donors: The OTHER Members of Our Cycling Team

Our ARSA cyclists are almost halfway to Capetown, with 10 days to go and logging 475 kilometers so far.

We want to take this moment to acknowledge all of the donors who are making ARSA 3.0 possible. ARSA held two fund-raising events in July in New York, and an amazing number of people came to show their support with donations and good wishes. We also are grateful to our online supporters and donors. Please continue to donate to ARSA’s cause.

And a GIANT thank you to our giant donors:

  • Mike’s Bikes Foundation in San Francisco, California (Thank you!)
  • The Bike Shop, Gabz in Gaborone, Botswana (Thanks to Paul!)
  • Cajees Cycle Corner at Princess Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa (Thanks so much, Fatima!)
  • Carol Hyman of San Francisco (Thank you, Carol!)
