2017 Bike4Kids

2017 Türkiye Cycle Tour Supporting BTF4Kids

Two Week Cross-Country Charity Sport Event 

 This Fall, Bridge to Turkiye Fund (BTF)  will sponsor a two week bike ride in western Anatolia to raise funds to purchase Boots, Coats and School Supplies for needy school age children in small Turkish villages.  This initiative will be modeled on our successful Black Sea coastal bike ride in 2014.

The upcoming 1,300 km trip will start in Canakkale on October 22, 2017 and continue south toward Izmir.  Ultimately our voyage will finish in Antalya on November 4, 2017.   We plan to cycle between 80-110 km per day along the Aegean coast line.  In addition to our past participants from North Carolina there will be local cyclists joining us from Turkey.   We have identified several corporate sponsors to cover our transportation and lodging expenses.  We plan to have a minivan provide escort service as we cycle.  This will enhance our on-road security and assist us transporting our luggage.

ALL of our fundraising for this event will benefit local school age children in Turkey.  Triangle Community Foundation will match each individual donation 2:1.   We welcome your donations.

About

Bridge to Türkiye Fund (BTF) was established in 2003 by community minded Turkish Americans (Turks4Good) driven to make a difference, to improve life and to cultivate social change for the common good. Our circle of compassion promotes respect and fellowship for humankind in the communities we serve. Turks4Good commitment to these ideals stems from our basic desire to give back to our native land for the many opportunities we have gained from her. We invite you to also contribute to the welfare of less fortunate children in Turkey.
