Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Spinlister, the peer-to-peer global bike share, announced today that for every bike listed using the promo code “R2R,” they will donate $10 to Race2Rebuild’s disaster relief projects. Race2Rebuild, the endurance charity racing organization founded by athletes after Hurricane Sandy to help families come home, provides athletes with the opportunity to race and then volunteer with national nonprofit Rebuilding Together. After the race, athletes have the opportunity to meet the family they support and help rebuild their home.

“We encourage athletes here in New York City and across the globe to list their bikes on Spinlister to help families come home,” said Race2Rebuild’s President Sarah Hartmann. “We’re tremendously grateful to Spinlister for giving triathletes and cyclists the platform to turn their bikes into helping the community recover following a disaster like Hurricane Sandy.”

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to support a cause like Race2Rebuild,” said Spinlister’s CEO Marcelo Loureiro. “This is a team of athletes on a mission to create tangible results through racing and we’re proud to help them do it on Spinlister’s bikes.”
