Cross-country cycling event to raise funds for MSF
Twenty-five riders, many of whom are fourth-year medical students, will be fundraising and participating in a 3,700-mile ride to benefit MSF. The group represents Ride for World Health (R4WH), a national, nonprofit organization that advocates for improvements in the quality and accessibility of global health care. R4WH was founded in November of 2004 by a small group of Ohio State University medical students as a reaction to the state of domestic and global healthcare.
The riders will start on April 14 in San Diego and are expected to finish May 26 in Washington, D.C. Please visit rideforworldhealth.org for more information on the tour.
