OneStream and Microsoft

Posted:

May, Las Vegas, Hans was invited to be a keynote speaker at the Onestram “Splash” conference. This multi-day event was also supported by Microsoft and both companies highlighted the work that Wheels 4 Life is doing. Not only did they provide us with a platform to raise awareness about the charity, they also supported us massively by initiating an “employee donation matching” scheme.

We are extremely grateful to Onestram and Microsoft and its many employees for supporting us in our misssion to buy bicycles for just some of those that really need transportation. As a result of the generosity shown to us at this event, we received donations in excess of $10,000. This amount will enable us to purchases another 75 bicycles. Thank you to all that worked so hard to make this happen.

Wheels 4 Life update from Hans Rey

April 27. 2017 

Wheels 4 Life charity is already in its 11th year of giving bicycles to people in need of transportation throughout the developing world.

The charity and cause has been growing at a healthy rate where Carmen and I can handle the day to day workload along with all of our other obligations and real jobs.

To date we have given almost 10,000 people in 32 different countries a bicycle. Each of these bicycles would have stories to tell about how people have benefited from them; how they made their lives easier, how they made earning an income possible, how they provided access to education and healthcare and in some cases, how they even saved lives.

Carmen and I are as committed as we were on day one. We still run the everyday business voluntarily, without compensation. We are assisted immensely by our Voluntary Project Leaders in the field (VPL), they supervise most of ...

Posted:

In October Hans Rey, Danny MacAskill, Gerhard Czerner, Martin Bissig and the Freeride Entertainment film crew popped in to visit one of our former projects in Ndeiya, Kenya, on their way to summiting Africa’s two highest peaks.

2013, Hans and I did the ultimate road trip, visiting 24 of our field project leaders in both Kenya and Uganda. We made a film about it, I wrote a story about it and took one or two thousand photos showing it. Fast forward to 2016….Hans, Danny and Gerhard are off to tackle the most physically and mentally challenging adventure of their lives. Hans as many know, has thirty years experience of expedition adventures, but even for him, this was going to be a huge one. To summit Mount Kenya and straight off the back, to summit Kilimanjaro, combined 36,000’….on bikes! But first, they visited one of the projects featured in our 2013 film “Riding Out of Poverty”, located in Ndeiya ...
