BENEFITING: American Red Cross
EVENT DATE: Jun 29, 2013
I will be cycling 1,400km over 14 days from Ottawa, Canada to Washington, DC to raise funds for the relief efforts from the recent tornadoes and severe weather in Oklahoma and throughout the Midwest.
Hardest hit was Oklahoma, where severe tornadoes ripped through several counties, destroying or damaging hundreds of homes and leaving thousands without power. The Red Cross is providing shelter and food, distributing relief items and clean-up supplies and working with local and state officials to ensure people get the help they need.
