Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
The staff members at AllCar Rent-A-Car have swapped their car keys for bike helmets this week in support of the Bike4Friendship, a cross-country bike trip to promote acceptance and understanding for children with special needs. AllCar proudly stepped in as an official vehicle sponsor for this year's event, providing event participants with complimentary van shuttles during their time in New York City.
"Bike4Friendship is a fantastic initiative, and one that we're very proud to sponsor," explains Nathan Isherwood, Web Marketing and Reservation Director at AllCar. "By lending our vehicles and our support, we’re not only helping a fantastic cause, but we're also helping to cultivate a community of caring and acceptance right here in Brooklyn."
The trip, which is organized by The Friendship Circle, kicked off on Sunday July 1 in Los Angeles, California. Riders are expected to complete their 3,279-mile journey on Sunday, August 19 when the tour arrives in New Jersey.
Now in its second year, the Bike4Friendship ride includes stops in Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, Omaha, Chicago, Cleveland and NYC. Eleven riders, including participants from as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia, will complete the coast-to-coast journey, with roughly 40 additional riders completing segments of the route. Riders have already garnered over $63,000 in donations, and organizers are confident that this number will continue to increase right up until the event's culmination.
"We're very excited to be a part of this event, and we're really looking forward to cheering the riders across the finish line."
AllCar Rent-A-Cars passenger van rentals will help provide the riders with ground transportation in NYC following their seven-week journey.
