If you’re looking for a beautiful cause this summer, Fashionilla invites you to grab your bike and your most fashionable cruising outfit, and join the Bicycle Babes posse on August 25 in a cruise around Stanley Park in support of JoinFITE. This charity bike ride will begin at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Yaletown at 3:00pm, will include several of their celebrity spokespeople.
“I’m very excited that our vision for Bicycle Babes is entering its second year with an abundance of local support and enthusiasm!” Explains Bicycle Babes Founder and the woman behind Fashionilla, Mimi Lauzon. “Our goal with this event is simple: We’re putting our love of fashion and bike riding to a valuable cause. In this case, helping JoinFITE support women in third world countries.”
The Bicycle Babes 2012 Celebrity Spokesmodels include Reiko Mackenzie, Reality TV Star; Ashleigh McIvor, 2010 Winter Games Olympic gold medalist; Jay Demerit, Captain of the Vancouver Whitecaps; and Zara Durrani of the show Life & Style with Zara on Chek TV.
Join the Bicycle Babes Charity Bike Ride!
They want everyone (men and women) to join the ride and raise awareness for a beautiful cause. Each rider is encouraged to make a donation- but donations are not mandatory- by registering here: http://bicyclebabes.eventbrite.ca/
Each registration is a donation to JoinFite, an organization that aids women in third world countries by providing them with microloans to start their own small businesses.
Why JoinFITE? Women are traditionally more likely to be denied a loan by a bank and often face high levels of financial discrimination. This year, we want to support JoinFITE to make a significant impact by filling the gap between what women can do and what women need.
Bicycle Babes is sponsored by Fashionilla in partnership with The Peak 100.5 FM and their Summer Cycle Crew; The International Cycle Chic blogger network; Sugar Studios and They Rep. New partners are welcome!
