EVENT: Riding Raw Across America
We are so grateful you have encountered our Riding Raw Across America Charitable Campaign for two noble charities: Athletics 4 Kids (Vancouver, Canada) & Two Wheel View (Minnisota, USA), supporting underprivileged children pursuing community athletics and personal growth in North America.
Starting August 1st, 2017 Carson McQuarrie (cyclist) and Jackson Foster (support crew) will set out on an epic adventure cycling across America, coast to coast, in 20 days on a healthful raw vegan diet to set a new record as the fastest vegan and the first raw vegan to cycle across America. His Guinness Record is pending review.
Carson 3 years ago started a journey of transformation. Inspired by his peers he set out to complete his first triathlon and adopt a whole food plant based diet in 2013, followed by completing his first ultramarathon in 2014, then cycling across Canada in under 30 days on a mostly fruit based, vegan diet. Previously interested in making cycling across Canada a charitable cause he's now fulfilling that goal while continuing to push his physical and mental boundaries.
He has grown up in a single parent home and knows the challenges youth go through and the lack of opportunities there are when coming from an underprivileged background. He realizes the unique transformative power community athletics can have in times of maturation: developing confidence, self-awareness, respect, self-worth, communication, teamwork, and ambition. These transferable traits play a vital role in fostering development.
When you choose to donate to Two Wheel View your money will go to developing programs at their Minnesota chapter such as allowing children to sign up for experiential multi-day bike touring trips where they learn about community, sustainability, and stewardship while developing personal traits for their future. When you choose to donate to Athletics 4 Kids your money will go directly to covering a child’s costs incurred by registering for community athletics such as cycling, hockey, soccer and many more. These experiences allow them to develop necessary life teachings for their continued success.
Show your support and donate to these two charities as Carson attempts to set a new record and raise $25,000 for these handpicked charities.
You too can play a vital role in the lives of deserving youth and children.
