The recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have caused tremendous loss of life and infrastructure. Assistance of all kinds is desperately needed and at ROUVY we will be doing our best to help and show our support. Please join this joint initiative between ROUVY and CHALLENGE FAMILY and help us make a meaningful contribution that can help Turkey and Syria rebuild. It's clear that now, more than ever, we need to come together to support the victims of these terrible humanitarian disasters.
EVERY RIDE HELPS ROUVY has set up a special way to help and provide much-needed aid. We have created a dedicated cycling route through the streets of Prague, where ROUVY is based, and for every ride completed we will donate $1 to the Red Cross in Prague, whose work is directly helping those affected by the tragedy.
Petr Samek, CEO of ROUVY, says: Turkey and Syria were recently struck with an earthquake that has caused many to seek support during their recovery process. With the help of the entire virtual community of cyclists around the world, I’m confident that together we can do our part to show love and support for those affected. We hope that through our combined efforts, Turkey and Syria will recover quickly and fully.
Jort Vlam, CEO of Challenge Family says: We are deeply touched by the terrible disaster in Turkey and Syria. A disaster that has taken place and disrupted so many lives, families and households. While fully aware that we cannot change anything about the suffering, we still want to do what we can to help all those in need. We hope we can count on your support: please join us, so that together we can raise as much money as possible to help rebuild Turkey and Syria and offer support.
The raised money will be transferred to ČESKÝ ČERVENÝ KŘÍŽ’s (Czech Red Cross) transparent account. 18,000 members of Turkish, Syrian, and Palestinian National Societies of the Red Cross organization are already intervening on the ground. The Czech Red Cross is supporting its Turkish and Syrian colleagues financially and, according to their instructions, is preparing material assistance in the area of medical supplies.
Ride and finish the selected route in a Time Trial, Race, or Just Ride mode in one activity, without interruption and without lowering the "reality level".
