If you're at all familiar with us at Frangipani Photography & Film you know that we love supporting worthwhile causes. Although we are not always able to spend as much time helping out as we would like, Brett was able to spend a weekend in October with Ride for Hope Bahamas. Ride for Hope is a a local charity that 'raises hope and resources to fight cancer' Cyclists are sponsored for the event and for every mile they raise money comes in to help in the fight to treat & cure cancer. Some of the more determined riders ever peddle a grueling 100 miles.
If you're a cyclist or bike rider at any level we can think of no better way to spend a Saturday in October than the Ride for Hope in Eleuthera Bahamas.
Ride for Hope - 2013 - Bahamas from Frangipani Film on Vimeo.
In it's 8th year, the annual Ride for Hope charity bike ride in Eleuthera, Bahamas was as successful as ever.
Strong wind and rains leading up to the big day threatened to put a damper on this year's event. Fortunately, the riders, volunteers and sponsors were not detered. Everyone remained in high spirits despite the weather and awoke to a beautiful sunshiny morning on Saturday, October 26th 2013.
Participants enjoyed riding up to 100 miles over all the lovely terrain the island of Eleuthera has to offer. From sleepy little fishing settlements to scenic hill top vistas & long stretches of beach, Eleuthera has it all.
Volunteers turned out in record numbers to offer enthusiastic support and encouragement for all the riders.
With each mile pedaled, dollars come in and every single one of those dollars is donated to cancer caring centers and cancer treatment programs.
