Wheels for the World!

Last
year I conquered Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for the nonprofit I founded, Save One Life. We’re starting to corner the market on “adventure fundraisers”!  This year? We conquer the
American highways with “Wheels for the World”!
On Monday, June 18, Barry Haarde, a 46-year-old Texan living successfully with hemophilia A,
HIV and hepatitis, from Texas, will start a 3,667 miles coast-to-coast bike ride from Astoria, Oregon to
Portsmouth, New Hampshire to raise funds for Save One Life. This is the first time someone with hemophilia will bike across
America for charity!
Save
One Life is a Massachusetts-based international nonprofit that provides direct financial aid to impoverished people with bleeding
disorders in developing countries. Founded in 2001, Save One Life provides
one-to-one sponsorships for almost 1,000 beneficiaries in ten countries. In
addition, it provides funding for camps, scholarships for students and support
for outreach to locate patients in rural areas. Barry is one of our dedicated
sponsors.
Please
help support Barry!
Pledge
by the mile or by the state; make a one-time donation or sponsor a child—all
proceeds go towards operations and programs to help Save One Life’s mission.  Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Baxter Healthcare International for helping to make this possible!
Barry can be reached at redsaleen97@yahoo.com and is on Facebook. You can sign up on Facebook for the Wheels for the World event, and follow Barry as he checks in daily with his progress! https://www.facebook.com/events/376245012409379/
