Signature Cycles Greenwich
Thursday July 20th from 6:00 until 7:30
Come join us for an auction to raise money for Mountain2Mountain, a nonprofit dedicated to creating voice and opportunity for women and children in conflict zones. The two projects running in 2013 include Mountain2Mountain’s ongoing work supporting women who dare to ride bikes in Afghanistan, and Strength in Numbers, a project that launch this summer with its first mountain biking camp in Breckenridge for young women that have survived gender violence.
In 2014, the documentary film Afghan Cycles will premiere covering the fight for Afghan women, and the courage that they’ve shown in daring to race bikes. The film was shot in Afghanistan with Let Media and proceeds will benefit Mountain2Mountain and its continued work to support the development of women’s cycling in Afghanistan. Strength in Numbers will also extend its reach to several more camps in more locations to build an army of women that can change the world!
The goal of our auction at Signature Cycles is to raise funds for this summer’s Strength in Numbers camp and the creation of the Afghan Cycles documentary. All of the proceeds collected will go directly to the projects. Some of the items being auctioned will come from the sponsors of Mountain2Mountain and will include goodies from Alchemy Bicycle Co., Osprey, Skratch Labs, Primal Wear, and more. As a bonus, the founder of Mountain2Mountain, Shannon Galpin, will be at the event acting as emcee, and we’ll be screening some sneak peeks of footage filmed in Afghanistan.
