This isn't only about riding mt. bikes for fun.
We also ride for our future!
World of Wonder Adventures, Inc. has teamed up with the Nevada Public Education Foundation(a statewide non-profit) to accept and distribute donations to public schools in Nevada generated by Mountain Bike Nevada.
Initially, Team WOW raised $1,100in 2010 as part of a grassroots effort for the exploratory ride, all of which was donated to the Nevada Public Education Foundation. Below is the commendation each member of Team WOW received for our individual efforts and contributions to education in Nevada. Again in 2011, by promoting Mountain Bike Nevada statewide in cooperation with the foundation, MTBNV raised an additional$1,600. Every future running of MTBNV promises to promote Nevada and education and continue to ride for a reason.
Donations are generated in four ways:
1. Just by joining the ride, you are putting much needed funds into Nevada's public schools. WOW Adventures, Inc. donates $100 per paid rider to the foundation!2. Each rider is encouraged to promote his/her extraordinary attempt to ride across the Nevada outback. Ask friends, family and co-workers to donate on your behalf. You pedal...they pay!
3. Schools and school districts are encouraged to promote their own fundraising efforts using Mountain Bike Nevada as a platform to generate community awareness and local donations.4. Businesses and communities may also want to form a team or sponsor riders. Consider getting some of your co-workers or buddies together for the bike ride of a lifetime with the purpose of raising money for the students of Nevada.
