Rappstar’s 5th Annual WBR Challenge – Specialized Steps Up

For those who have been following and donating to our 5th Annual World Bicycle Relief Charity Challenge – thank you for your outstanding support! If you’re unaware of the Challenge and what it entails, you can check out our existing articles HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

The Challenge is going strong, and we’ve collected over $30,000 so far. That’s a great start, but we’re about to inject some real horsepower in to this campaign as we head towards the big race in Kona.

I don’t normally plug my sponsors on Slowtwitch, but this one deserves it PLUS a pat on the back. Recently, Specialized (my bike sponsor) came to me with an offer: For one week, we will match all donations up to $30,000. You read that correctly.

Between Monday, October 7th and the end of the race in Kona on Saturday, October 12th, Specialized will match all donations for our WBR Fundraiser, up to $30,000!

This year, the midnight finish in Kona will be just a little bit sweeter. Okay, a LOT sweeter. World Bicycle Relief and I cannot express our thanks enough for this wonderful outreach that will give us a huge boost to our $100,000 goal. If you have been putting off a donation this year, next week is the time to stop procrastinating. Set a reminder in your calendar! Set your alarm clock! Tell all your friends to remind you… and then go donate a few bucks instead of buying that latte! We will also assault you via social media outlets on Monday morning to remind you. If you go big and donate $134, that will now provide TWO complete WBR bicycles to people in need.

Feel free to donate at our website provided by the Ironman Foundation (linked at the top of the article) OR via snail mail at:
