Ride for Hope Bahamas 2012
The 7th Annual Ride for Hope is set for April 14, 2012 in Eleuthera. We wish all the organisers and participants a safe and successful event this year.
In the past 6 years, well over 1,000 riders have pedaled over 40,000 miles to raise money to help improve the lives of Bahamians with cancer. Through research, education, screening and direct financial assistance, the Ride for Hope is saving lives.
One of those riders each year has been Popopstudios founder, John Cox. In addition to being chief curator at the NAGB, director of Popopstudios, an instructor at the College of the Bahamas, an active artist and family man, Cox is also an avid cyclist.
Ride for Hope Bahamas, a registered Charity in The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, was formally constituted in 2009. It was established for the purpose of raising money to support initiatives related to health, wellness and human development in The Bahamas.
Ride for Hope’s designated focus is cancer. The organization’s flagship fund raiser is “The Ride for Hope” – now a seven year old bike-a-thon held each Spring on the island of Eleuthera. Without exception, every dollar raised by participants is applied to programme support.
