Wheels For Wells Announces 2012 Ride Dates. July 8th – July 14th 2012

Nags Head, NC – Ocean City, NJ July 8th – July 14th 2012

Wrapping Up & Saying Thank You

Written by Christopher Carr on Friday, July, 13th, 2012

This week, a special group of people has had the chance to join together and do something extraordinary. Eight committed cyclists and their support staff made the trek all the way from the Outer Banks up to what will be their final destination tomorrow afternoon – Ocean City, NJ. What is more impressive, though, is that those cyclists were able to raise over $15,000 for clean water projects in Africa. Their heart for the cause and their passion for putting an end to the water crisis was the motivation that brought them to this point. Who in the world would choose to spend one of their precious vacation weeks riding a bike for nearly 400 miles in the middle of July heat? Allow us to introduce you to those who would..and did. Meet our incredible 2012 Wheels for Wells riders (as pictured, from left to right): Steve Fischer, Anh Vu, Benjamin Ruegsegger, Craig Anderson, Chris Carr, Clare Oestreicher, Katie Yori, Mark Oestreicher

Stopped on the roadside for a quick photo op. during the route from Salisbury, MD to Harrington, DE.    Quite an impressive team!

On behalf of the WfW cyclists, support staff and our parent organization, Compassion Corps, we would like to sincerely thank this year’s corporate and church partners. Your financial support and your generous donations of products and services were key reasons why this event was a success. We have you to thank for the great impact that can now be made in villages in northern Africa – an impact that will lead to a healthier life and a brighter future for thousands of people. Through the gift of water, we can provide hope and it is through your generous partnership with the Wheels for Wells 2012 Tour that this can even be a reality. WfW would like to extend the utmost gratitude to our partners:
